A friend of mine wrote this and they are going to publish it in the newspapers here soon. Dear AUSTIN AMERICAN -STATESMAN: Rachel Cooke has still not been found. Everyone in this community must stay aware there is a predator in our midst and there is still a missing teenager who has not been seen in over three months. We need to stay aware of the circumstances surrounding Rachel's disappearance and be cognizant of the fact that last year in Texas alone there were over 71,000 missing persons reports filed. Statistics such as these are staggering, and we need to send a powerful message to anyone capable of such heinous acts that we as a society will have "zero tolerance" and will hunt down and prosecute predators to the fullest extent of the law. The fight and search for Rachel Cooke is not over. Refusing to feel victimized, the Cooke family and their league of supporters have channeled their frustration and grief into feverish work to both continue their search for Rachel and to help others protect themselves and their loved ones. For those interested, there are easy ways to learn more by accessing Rachel's web site http://www.rachelcookesearch.org. A Run/Walk for Rachel is being held at Old Settlers Park in Round Rock on April 27th. I encourage everyone to attend and bring their loved ones to help support the search effort and pay homage to this missing child, her family, and the many heroic volunteers who are helping them through this tragedy.
