Primetime’s HLN will spotlight those lost in the shuffle
Popular primetime news show, Nancy Grace, will be placing the spotlight on 50 missing persons cases beginning this week, throughout the next two months. “Nancy Grace: America’s Missing” airs Monday to Sunday beginning at 9 p.m. EST on HLN.
Grace is known for provocative news casts, in an effort to provoke dialogue among homicide and crime experts, and the public. Popular stories include the Casey Anthony case, of which Grace provided around-the-clock nightly news coverage. Missing persons date back as far as 20 to 30 years.
“Anything that can move a case forward to me would be worth it,” says Grace. “If a case gets solved that would be like a blessing from heaven.”
Grace intends on showcasing several minority missing persons cases, as many of these stories are lost amidst the outrageous coverage given to missing Caucasian women.
Individuals seeking help to find missing friends and family are encouraged to send their story and portraits to HLN’s “Nancy Grace: America’s Missing,” via CNN’s iReport.
Tuning in will heighten awareness surrounding this evergreen issue. Actively acknowledging the urgency involving missing persons is critical if something is to be done about this national epidemic.
