I REALLY hope his mother (or someone who knows his mother) is reading this comment. I have a good story for you all...after finding this kid's myspace, "Grrrrrrrrrrr" and I found a bunch of information on who his friends are, and where he is.
I have URL's of his friends myspaces written down, as well as copies of comments pointing to people who know where he is and what he is doing. I put all of this information together, and decided to call Glendora Police Department. The conversation went as follows:
Me: "Hi, I was calling because I may have information regarding the 17 year old who is reported missing...Vinny"
GPD: "Okay..."
Me: "Yeah, I was reading about it in the Tribune, and I found his myspace. It looks like some of his friends know where he is, and what he is doing"
GPD: "Okay, Hold on"
Dispatch: "Dispatch"
Me: "Yes, I'm calling because I may have information regarding the missing boy, Vinny"
Dispatch: "Uh huh"
Me: "I found him on myspace, and found a bunch of his friends, and a few of them had posted comments that they knew where he is and what he is doing"
Dispatch: "Okay, I'll let the detectives know"
Me: "Do you want their names or anything?"
Dispatch: "No, but I'll let the detectives know. Thank you"

I am so mad right now. Interesting that I just blasted all of the anti-Glendora/Conspiracy Theorists in another comment (which was probably deleted), and I got the door slammed in my face by Glendora PD, when I really feel like I have valid information. For all of you who want to know, looks like Vinny's in the mountains with some Xanax and has been crying a lot. Of course, this comment will probably be deleted too. Thanks for your help, Topix and GPD.

Thank you :)
Sometimes we do good for the community (including the tax dollars that the city gets from my weekly 2am visits to Albertos).
And it is very hard for me to hold back from telling you that you've misspelled 'grammar'. ;)

I have to say the people that are the voice and face of Glendora PD (the people that man the window and answer the phones) have a complete disregard for courtesy and appear completely apathetic. I have seen it many times. It is no wonder the kids in Glendora have no respect for the GPD.

At least Campbell is on the job on this one. She seems capable.

I called back and spoke to Campbell directly. She is definitely on top of things, and I feel bad for blasting the entire department because of one incident.

Their comments made me feel old...Xanax Bars? Are they anything like Fiber One bars?
Grrrrrr and I take a lot of heat from some of the innapropriate comments we post here (mostly being silly, or just trying to get a rise out of people). I think we all want to do right, especially when it comes to our community, and we all care about what's happening, whether it's "going downhill" or not. Regardless of what this boy is doing, nobody wants his family/mother to suffer, and we all want him home safely. You don't all get to see my sensitive side very often, but this story is really getting to me.

Great job IHG! I cringed when I read your first post. Dispatchers aren't always known for their kind and courteous demeanor. I guess that's why they excel in emergency situations. I would have thought they would have transferred you to the detective handling the case. Glad you were able to make contact with the detective handling the case in the end.

You have some mad skills on the Internet! Ever think of going into the private detective business?...lol

You did a good job.. now lets just see if they follow up on it. I kind of think the GPD looks for things that aren't there sometimes, thinks all teens are bad and sits up by the high school looking for speeders.. It'd actually be nice if us as a town WITH the PD could start doing some drug prevention things.. I know we have DARE, but when is the last time there was a big deal made over it.. posters all over town.. parent involvement..?? Maybe what the kids need is for that wool over our eyes to be taken off.. and to start doing something... it really is about time we're losing these kids.
