Little girl lost
Re “The mystery of Laura,” Sept. 19 and Sept. 20
Kurt Streeter’s story on the Bradbury family was both heartbreaking and compelling.
I grew up in Huntington Beach and was a young girl when Laura Bradbury disappeared. I remember all too clearly the bumper stickers and billboards calling for people to help find Laura. It was such a sad and painful time, and one of the first times I remember being frightened that something bad could actually happen to me.
The article showed clearly the pain that lasts and lasts when a child is harmed.
I’m happy to see that quality, in-depth reporting on real human issues still has a place in print journalism; I hope it always does.
FOR LAURA: In 1986, then-Rep. Dan Lungren helped in efforts to find Laura Bradbury.
