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.
