Heartbreaking: These 15 Children Have Gone Missing This Month in Philadelphia, PA
In the first three weeks of May, 15 children have gone missing in the City of Philadelphia.
Sadly, that's on top of the nearly three dozen juveniles that disappeared just last month.
Month after month, the city sees people of all ages and from all walks of life seemingly vanish.
And while it's heartbreaking to see people go missing, children on the mean streets of a big city with a high crime rate is especially disturbing.
