UPDATE: I have instructed my webmaster to delete the hateful comments of "Walter" from my website and his brooming can't come soon enough. What kind of sick individual talks like that? Michelle Malkin and her family are in pain and do not deserve this kind of commentary.
Walter, God will sort you out. In the meantime, you may not speak like that in MY house.
My friend Michelle Malkin is putting out a plea today for your help, especially if you live in the Seattle area.
Help if you can, pray if you can't.
"...This is my beautiful cousin, Marizela Perez:
SEATTLE — The photo above from Marizela’s friends/family shows the tattoo on her left inner arm that reads “lahat ay magiging maayos” — a Tagalog saying for “all will be well.”
Thanks so much to all of you for your prayers and for helping to spread the word across the Internet.
Thanks to many friends/contacts in the Seattle-area media who covered her disappearance over the past few days, including:
Marizela still hasn’t been heard from or seen by family since Saturday.
The Seattle PD says it has probable visual identification of Marizela boarding the Othello train near her home in the Rainier Beach area and commuting into the University District during the noon hour on Saturday. A Seattle PD detective from the missing persons bureau says there’s evidence that she was last seen Saturday afternoon at the Safeway in the city’s University District on 4732 Brooklyn Ave NE between 1-2pm. At some point during that time, purchases were made on her debit card.
The police say they “have no reason to suspect foul play” at this point. There are several reasons and grim evidence that cause the family to remain gravely concerned about Marizela’s safety, health, and well-being. As mentioned yesterday in the flyers the family is handing out, Marizela was taking anti-depressants and has been for some time. As my family gets on the ground to continue the search for Marizela, please continue to get the word out to anyone in the Seattle-area you know. Here’s the updated info on her last known location/time. If anyone saw or talked to her in the University District Saturday afternoon or has seen her since, please contact law enforcement ASAP:
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.

Date Missing: March 5, 2011, 12:00-12:30 P.M.

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.
“Lahat ay magiging maayos” is Tagalog for “All will be well.”
May God make it so. Please keep my cousin and her family in your prayers. Thank you."
