You probably know that over the years I have opposed the use of age progressions, because I didn’t think they were reliable enough. I don’t know how reliable this one is either, but it appears to be better than others I’ve seen — there is enough of a family resemblance that it could be helpful in finding her. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is preparing flyers to be sent to the consulates in an area abroad, and it will probably not be helpful to be looking for a nine-year old child at this point.
You have probably noticed some changes in this blog also. Although the old name will continue to work, and the old url will as well, I have designated a new domain name for the blog, DearMichaela.com. I wanted to do this to make it easier to get out through a newspaper article or television news program, and to make it easier to remember.
We have been investigating the leads I told you about and haven’t gotten a lot of cooperation, so in the next couple of days I’m going to make this information public, so check back here.
Thank you all so much for your help, and Michaela, wherever you are, I love you.
