    That's like comparing apples and limes. Orlando has a ton of attractions and is a larger city on an entirely different scale. Myrtle Beach's main attraction is the "family friendly" beach. That's it. There isn't much here. No amusement parks, no casinos, etc.

    MB and Horry County keep the crime out of the news for fear of spoiling the "family" image. Nevermind that there is a strip club, liquor store, or adult toy store on every corner, the girls turn tricks all hours of the day or night in the most populated tourist spots, and the main park, Chapin, is dubbed "Crackpipe" park by the locals.

    Maybe LE leaked the police report on purpose so that people would see that is quite possibly a domestic-type issue...or conclude that, anyway.

    The area, perhaps? Also, Caylee's case was centered around her mother, who wouldn't be a danger to anyone else (theoretically). I don't recall LE saying a whole lot of anything in the Natalee Holloway case, either, until they got a better lead. And Madeline was three, not 20, so I don't count that the same. I find that LE is more forthcoming with minors that are missing.

    So all I can think of is that if LE let people know that people keep going missing in Myrtle Beach, that might kill their Spring Break business and the area might not be able to take that hit in this economy. Just another thought.

    Did you find anything that points to foul play?

    Where is that park? I'm not sure I know it. At least by name.

    Is there really a violent ex? Cause I find it amazing that this hasn't come up on FB (at least to my knowledge) when it seems like everything else has.

    IDK...I just feel like people are overestimating the effect on tourism that a missing person case is going to have. Yes, there are multiple unsolved ones, but which ones is the average person going to "worry" about? None of the missing are children, for instance. I just can't see there being some significant loss. The state of South Carolina has a $15 billion a year tourism industry, with about $6.5 billion of that being in the MB area. I would think there would need to be major national media coverage for there to be a noted impact. Like constantly telling people how dangerous MB is, you will go missing, putting fear into people, very sensational rather than the local media just giving more coverage to a missing woman case.

    Also, re: tourism, most people are going to go where they want to go and where they find the prices, hotels, and etc. that they want. Unless I was traveling out of the US, I would never think about local crime as something to affect my vacation plans. We used to go to Atlantic City all the time when I was young and that was no paradise, crime-wise, lol...within a block or two of the boardwalk, it was horribly seedy...may still be that way.

    Well, since her father is clearly focused on SM...I have to think he is not too concerned with this other person, for whatever reason, JMO?

    It's not just about a missing persons case not being cover, it's basically a media blackout down here. As someone pointed out, those with close ties to the media also sit on the board of the Chamber of Commerce.

    They banned bike week, instituted a helmet law that was later repelled due to the impact it had on the tourism, the public outcry. Just from having to wear a helmet.

    Our mayor just took a $30,000 pay raise for "additional duties" for what would generously be called a part-time position that he shares with the City manager. For reference, mayor of Charlotte, NC makes between $13,000 and $16,000.

    They instituted a 1% tax increase to pay for the "tourism" ads they were putting out everywhere to make up for the losses incured from the bike week blowout, the helmet law, and the general decline in tourism due to the economy. That tax brought in millions.

    The powers that be are not going to take a chance losing any of that!

    While spending the evening at my sisters who vacations with her family 2 to 3 times a year at Myrtle Beach. She asked what I was reading when she saw the list of people missing from that area and never found or found deceased she was hooked. She read for about an hour then told her husband "I'm done with that!" She has 1 daughter and 3 granddaughters from 16 down plus one step granddaughter who is 17. They have always watched them but not guarded them while there. This is what would really happen if people heard about all these cases.

    The more I think about it, if LE did leak the PR, maybe it was to show where they were looking, without having to say a word.

    I do think MB is a tighter market than say, Orlando, and there probably is some effort to limit national news. At the very least, they sure don't want it publicized.

    Perhaps some of you wouldn't choose a vacation destination based on crime rates, but it is definitely something I think about. The closer you get to downtown Myrtle Beach, the sketchier it gets. You really see some ratchet people down there and if you look up the crime rate, it's high. The mayor likes to blame it on the bloated population during the season, but IMO most of the crime is committed by locals. Not many people who travel to a family beach destination are going out and robbing others at gunpoint, etc. That is just his poor excuse for not doing a better job with the city.

    I, on the other hand, live very close to North Myrtle Beach (a completely different city, not just the northern part of Myrtle Beach), and it is like a whole different world in terms of the locals population and general shadiness.

    So it was leaked and not requested through a FOIA request? Are you referring to the partially redacted officially-looking one published in myhorrynews?

    Or the other one that family friends were floating? Whether that one was officially released or not, I'm trying to find out how that one came to be in a private citizen's hands, but not in an official report format.

    If anyone can shed some light on either of these reports, and, if anyone knows if one nor both were leaked, or how they came to be released to the public, I would appreciate it. TIA
