The upside for parents in the age of the Internet, when a child goes missing, is the information can be immediately distributed to people willing to assist in search efforts. The downside for these same people is once a child is recovered or the case resolved, the child’s information is simply removed from the participating website with no further explanation unless they are an NCMEC Poster Partner. In the event of an RSS Feed the information will no longer be received with no resolution provided.
In July there was a Missing Children RSS Feeds issued by the NCMEC for two missing girls from Rockford, Il.
JASMINE AL-SADUN, Age Now: 10, Missing: 07/06/2007. Missing From ROCKFORD, IL. ANYONE HAVING INFORMATION SHOULD CONTACT: Rockford Police Department (Illinois) 1-815-987-5800.
HANADIE AL-SADUN, Age Now: 15, Missing: 07/06/2007. Missing From ROCKFORD, IL. ANYONE HAVING INFORMATION SHOULD CONTACT: Rockford Police Department (Illinois) 1-815-987-5800.
These were the circumstances of their disappearance.
Jasmine and Hanadie were last seen on July 6, 2007. They may be in the company of an adult female. They may travel to Michigan. Jasmine’s nickname is Jaz. The children are of Middle Eastern descent.
There were not any updates issued until the accident so you can imagine the shock reading this story in the Rockford Register Star.
The sisters — former East High student Maalie Al-Sadun, 18, who was five or six months pregnant; Auburn sophomore Hanadie Al-Sadun, 15; and Lewis Lemon fifth-grader Jasmine Al-Sadun, 10 — died after a head-on collision in LaSalle County last Sunday afternoon.The girls’ mother, Soad Al-Sadun, was unable to attend the service because she and her 5-month-old grandson, Ahmed Al-Sadun, were injured in the crash. Both are being treated at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria: Soad’s condition went from serious to fair last week, and Ahmed has improved from fair to good condition, hospital officials say.
