NBC Nightly News Finally Takes a Look at the Phylicia Barnes Disappearance

Last night the NBC Nightly News showcased the case of Phylicia Barnes. Barnes the North Carolina teen who disappeared December 28th while visiting family in Baltimore. This case has received minimal national coverage and the coverage last night was in response to the cry that if this had been a white teen the story would have received more attention and in a more timely manner. The racial aspect was even explored within the piece. Last night the piece came across as NBC was simply doing their due diligence. It has been 3 weeks since this girl was last seen and it is hard to believe that at this point this story would make a difference. When Natalee Holloway disappeared in Aruba 5 years ago that story was covered by all the networks and 24/7 on cable and she was in a foreign country. Barnes disappeared on American soil in Baltimore and if she had received ½ of the coverage when she was first reported missing she might have been found by now. We have to wonder is this now simply too little too late.
