“Oh my God!” my mother said. “What the heck happened to us!?”
My father and my sister were on the phone with the ambulance. They’d been watching in horror as the young girl writhed on the floor after she had been thrown through the window by her friend.
We went up into our room and looked up the ladder outside, in the hopes of finding someone who could help. There was a ladder, but no ladder maker. All the kids climbed, but just one was on the ladder when my father went back downstairs. What was that about? He climbed up, and then he was gone.
I called his cell and found him slumped in bed beside his mother. “I’m so sorry mother,” he whispered, and went back to sleep.
We’d be lucky.
You never hear about the parents of young people walking away from their lives and never meet the young girls who survived.
The young women who went missing in Chicago in the 1970s did get lucky. My mother was one of them. Her brother, a taxi driver, found her body at the bottom of a Chicago park after a long search.
One of the problems that the children’s groups and parents struggle with is what to do when a girl or young woman disappears. They have options: call the police and file a report of abduction, or move out of the city entirely.
The police in Chicago are good at identifying and identifying victims, but bad when it comes to helping the families. In 1973, my mother’s mother was told when she called 9-1-1 that the police were on their way to do a search without her.
When I heard about that incident the next day, I was outraged: “Is this a joke?”
Then my mother told me about another case: The woman on the radio had called 9-1-1 on her way to the hospital for an allergic reaction to sugar in her diet.
When the police found the woman, they weren’t sure what to do with her. A nurse gave her clothes and shoes, and then told the police that she had “suffered cardiac arrest.” When they called 9-1-1 again to inquire, they got a different story: The nurse had told them that the woman had gone for food on her way to the hospital.
