    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    I hope she's found safe. The article I read said she's know to wander around town - I hope she didn't encounter someone who took advantage of her.

    Missing Person Update 9/3/2015: Jerrica Laws

    The Park Forest Police Department is still actively investigating the Missing Person complaint of Jerrica Laws.

    Jerrica Laws, also known as "Ric Ric", was last seen walking in the 200 block of Lee St., Park Forest, on Sunday, August 16th, at 7pm. Laws was reported missing by family members on 8/18/15 at 6pm. Laws is an African American female, 24 years of age, 5'2" tall, 140 lbs., a single piercing in each ear, and last seen wearing a dark colored shirt. The family has indicated that Laws has an undiagnosed mental disability. Laws is known to walk around in the Villages of Park Forest and Matteson. She attends church in the city of Kankakee, Illinois, and has family in Indianapolis, Indiana.

    The Park Forest Police Department has obtained the assistance of the Chicago Police Department Helicopter Unit to conduct fly-overs of the area, the assistance of a Search and Rescue Dogs of Illinois K9 unit to conduct area searches, the assistance of the ILEAS Mobile Field Force to conduct an area canvass and a check of vacant homes in the Lincolnwood neighborhood, and volunteers to conduct area searches of wooded areas and opens spaces. This is in addition to the numerous searches and canvasses already conducted by Park Forest Police Patrol and Investigations Units.

    While we do not have evidence that suggests foul play and there is nothing illegal about an adult voluntarily leaving, the Park Forest Police Department takes this Missing Person report very seriously and is concerned about Ms. Laws' whereabouts, as the family reports that her absence and lack of contact is highly unusual and fear for her safety. If you have any information about the whereabouts of Jerrica Laws, please call the Park Forest Police Department Investigations Unit at (708) 748-1309. Please help by sharing this information.

    Jerrica, you are NOT forgotten. I spoke to your mother recently online and she misses you deeply, and is committed to finding you. You are a beautiful soul. You are loved. We will not stop searching for you. I have submitted you to every missing persons site I can, and your name rings in my mind. You matter. Your absence is felt, always, and you will not fade away. I promise not to forget. We will keep searching until you are found. You are on my mind, Jerrica. You will NOT be forgotten. Be strong Jerrica. We will never stop searching. I may not know you myself, but I keep you close to my heart. You are NOT forgotten.
