    There is a picture at the link of her brother holding her missing poster. Her pic is on the missing poster. Not a real great way to have a missing person's photo out there, but, something is better than nothing.


    ETA - you know this does tick me off. I live in Belleville and the notice of the family's protest at city hall this week is the first mention I have seen of Janet Tillman in the local media. The St. Louis Post Dispatch ran a story as well. She went missing in October last and nothing till now.

    It was an expression of one family's frustration - and hope.

    A protest was held in honor of Janet Tillman Thursday morning in front of Belleville City Hall by about two dozen family and friends, carrying signs and chanting. The protesters alleged city police had failed to properly investigate the disappearance of the 50-year-old Belleville resident whom family members said worked as a prostitute in East St. Louis.

    "I'd just like people to be aware and help find her," Janet's older sister, Vanessa Outlaw, said. "We just need the help of the police force and community and we need their help."Janet Tillman was last seen the evening of Oct. 16 in East St. Louis, getting into a solicitor's vehicle while working as a prostitute.
