We all know the case of Jennifer Wilbanks, the runaway bride.  And who wasn’t enthralled with the Laci Peterson case?  Of course, now we have Natalee Holloway, the blond haired, blue eyed Alabama coed missing in Aruba, the news of which I’m sure you’ve all been following with bated breath on CNN or Fox News.  So I won’t bore you with the details of her case (Five suspects arrested?  Really? And who saw her last?).

Instead, just for fun, I thought I’d give you a list of some missing women who haven’t made a big splash on cable news or the networks.  And they all share something in common (I mean, other than being unknown and missing).  Can you guess what that common characteristic might be?

The answer after the break:
Did you guess?  Well surprise, surprise, all these missing women are all officially Not White! That’s right, no blonde haired beauties in the bunch.  I’m sure that has nothing to do with them not being spotlighted for national attention however.

Nonetheless, they all went missing just like those more familiar women we’ve come to know and obsess about because our National Media tells us we should.  So without further ado, here’s
