There’s so many unsolved mysteries. I suppose I’m just sighing because of the familiarity of the scenario. There’s usually upper middle to upper class parents who are creating the media stir to find my under 25 years old white daughter, the media rallying around “we have a damsel in distress!” and we follow the latest mystery.
That’s our hobby as a culture and it’s fine.
I just feel bad for all the ones that will never see airtime that don’t fit the trope. Their families are devastated but they don’t have the capability to rally multinational news corporations around their family story
They have the means and our culture has the interest so it’s a fit.
