    If they go missing when not actually being prostitutes you're right. But the usual scenario is they are picked up by a bad guy. At that point they are probably by their own choice out of sight of...

    Wind the clock back and you see the same thing. Back in the 60s my father made a sacrificial run for office--as a Republican. By the 80s he was voting Democrat--his politics didn't change, the...

    Most of them come home on their own. Any effort spent looking for such people produces no useful results. The police looking for them won't change the danger they're in.
