Fox News has its next topic for Greta Van Susteren:
REYNOLDSBURG, Ohio — A Reynoldsburg woman has been missing for nearly a week. Now her family is offering a reward for information that brings her home, NBC 4’s Mike Bowersock reported.
Julie Popovich was last seen Thursday night at Ledo’s on North High Street. According to a police report, friends saw her get into a car with someone they thought she knew.
“This is not the profile for her. This does not fit her profile at all. She’s a responsible young lady who just vanished,” said Kevin Miles, of Crime Stoppers.
Employees at Ledo’s searched credit card receipts from Thursday night, looking for clues.
“I know I’ve seen her in here before with groups of people. I’ve seen her come in playing darts in the dart room, sitting by the pool tables in the back,” said Shawnell Starrett, Ledo’s assistant manager.
Popovich is a model and she works at a Reynoldsburg Max and Erma’s restaurant. Her family is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to her return. She was described as 5 feet 11 inches tall , weighing 104 pounds.
To state again my take on stories of this type, I truly empathize with the parents. I can’t imagine anything more painful than being called by a government employee with news that my daughter is missing or dead. But the focus of an international news organization’s resources on one story of this nature for weeks on end is ridiculous, and I think deliberately intended to keep viewers distracted from important events taking place offscreen.
Meanwhile, Columbus, Ohio should keep an eye out for Greta. She’ll probably be there before next weekend.
