Michelle Malkin’s Cousin Is Missing

Michelle Malkin’s Cousin Is Missing


As Kathy Kattenburg of Moderate Voice said earlier, this transcends politics.

Here’s the info…

She is a University of Washington undergrad and she has been missing since Saturday afternoon, when she left the Rainier Beach neighborhood headed to the UW Seattle campus. Her parents have been trying to reach her all weekend; she apparently never made it to campus and has not been heard from by phone/Internet. They’ve filed a missing persons report with the Seattle Police Department. Hospitals have been alerted, according to family members, and bus and train routes have been checked. No sign.

Here’s more info we’re trying to spread via Facebook and Q13Fox/KCPQ in Seattle:

Last Seen: Rainier Beach area, heading to UW Seattle campus to meet friends for lunch or study in the UW libraries

Possible Routes: Sound Link Light Rail stations, downtown/Chinatown areas, UW Seattle campus, U-district

Seattle-area readers, can you please help get the word out — and if you or anyone you know might know anything about Marizela’s (nickname: “Em-Em”) whereabouts, please get in touch with the Seattle Police Department/UWPD or contacts listed at Facebook link above ASAP.

Marizela, if you are able to let your dad and mom know that you are okay, please contact them. You are so loved.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give Michelle’s family.

    I honestly don’t see the point of posting this at Donklephant. Perhaps if it was a politician’s cousin or a staffer … something. But Michelle Malkin? What does she have to do with

    a respectful, honest forum for people who want to have a conversation about politics, the world and beyond.


    I am sympathetic to missing persons but, frankly, there are many missing people – I just don’t see the relevance.

    I agree that it’s outside the stated purview of the blog.

    But I think it’s well within the range of any blog owner’s prerogative to include such stuff at his or her discretion. Besides, it’s of relevance to hloggers in general as blogger-related news.

    Really nothing for any of us to say on the story other than to hope she’s found alive and well, though. Which I’m sure we all do.

    I would think that it should not be such a bad thing to do a little service and post the missing alert. What harm does it do and does it not at least show a bit of compassion?
