Lesley Herring, Hollywood Woman Missing for 2 Years, Gets Nancy Grace Treatment on CNN Tonight
The media has been roundly criticized for its "missing white woman syndrome" -- giving way more play to missing, young (attractive) Anglo females than those of other ages and ethnicities.
So it's refreshing when we buck the trend.
It's been about two years since her case hit the news in L.A. One thing that seemed strange to police when Herring first disappeared:
Her husband hadn't reported her gone. No, it was her sister, Aasha Davis, who told authorities that Herring went missing from her Hollywood condominium complex.
And the 46-year-old disappeared a day after her and her hubby had an argument.
Cops say the man hasn't been their biggest ally in the search for Herring.
"I would describe his cooperation as fragmented and less than helpful," LAPD Det. Chris Gable told ABC7.
The husband reportedly told cops he went to sleep the night of the argument and that when he woke up on Feb. 9, 2009, she was gone.
Herring is 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighs 120 pounds.
Anyone with information about her was asked to call police at 213-972-2915.
The show airs at 5 p.m.
