Just because someone is "normal" doesn't mean that bad things can't happen to them. The "Victim's Rights" groups (domestic abuse etc) are going to fight it. Why? Because THEY want to be able to "disappear" and not have to worry about someone reporting them as "missing" I say hog-wash!!! 90% of abused spouses aren't the sharpest knife in the drawer to begin with. They believe the lies that their abuser fills their head with. They're weak people...NOT self starters or self thinkers. When one of them wants to "disappear" then THEY should be required to place their name on a "Hot Sheet" for abused people. Anytime there's something that will HELP people...there will ALWAYS be those who will use it for HURTING people. The cops, in their investigations would find that there have been DV calls made with the missing person's name attached to it. At that point, they could (should) arrest the abusing party...keeping him/her incarcerated for the minimum of 72 hours while the "missing" person goes and takes whatever they need from the residence. If they take more than is legally theirs, then the abuser can file a claim in court. Hey, they shouldn't have been abusing ANYONE to begin with!!! Crime always has its drawbacks! I'd be SUPER PISSED OFF if my husband didn't show up as usual and the cops refused to listen and take a "missing" report!!! These outdated laws MUST GO!!! You'll notice however, that whenever an "important" person is reported missing that it's on the news immediately and a search is started. Someone like Ted Kennedy failing to show up at a doctor's appointment and then for dinner" would start a NATIONAL search. Why are any of the rest of us any less important???
