This week on Missing (August 21-27)

This week's episode of the show Missing, which profiles real life missing people, will include one of the people I have featured on this blog, Georgina DeJesus. This show profiles real-life missing people and airs on different stations on different days and times, so you will have to find the station nearest you at (If you live in Gina's native Cleveland, Ohio, you can watch it on WAOH at 5pm or 6pm on August 23, or at 10:30am on August 27.)
