As lawmakers continue to wrangle over the Amber Alert bill, Chicago police continue to have officers work full-time on the search for Tionda and Diamond Bradley. Police spokesman Bayless says investigators at the command post devoted to the case occasionally get help from the cold case squad.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth Smart has given Alonzo Washington new motivation to help gather attention for "forgotten" missing children. He has used his comic books, trading cards and line of action figures to bring attention to Jahi Turner, Alexis Patterson, Rilya Wilson and Precious Doe and plans to do so again with another comic book and comic strip on his Web site in May for National Missing Child Day.
"Many in the national media say that Elizabeth Smart's story fell off the national media's radar," he said. "America's forgotten children never made it to the national media's radar."
