There seems to be no heavier pain to carry than the loss of a child. It’s hard enough to lose a child to a health issue or accident, but when a stranger and violence are involved, it seems unimaginable how a parent or any family member could get through the day when their heart has been shattered by the loss or worse when they don’t know where or what happened to their child. Today, I’ll be telling two stories of young children who went missing under bizarre circumstances. These cases are considered open, but are they in essence, solved? And in both cases, were family members involved? These are the stories of Wallace Guidroz and Lenoria Jones, and their mysterious disappearances.
