Re "Search effort launched for missing 15-year-old" (Page B3, Feb. 9): The story never told me why the missing girl came to Sacramento. Does her mother live here? Does she have relatives in the area? Why did she leave Oregon, where she lives, to take a bus ride here?
The reporter talked to her father, but apparently never asked about the burning local angle of why she came here. And why does the father believe she is being held against her will?
As a former Sac Bee copy editor of a decade ago, these giant holes would have been caught and reader confusion eliminated. Kind of sad.
