I have talked with Michael a few times. I KNOW he has been going through a rough time, fighting to get Emily entered into NCMEC. This Dad has hit too many brick walls for the last 6 months, and could use your support. So, even if you don't know of Emily's whereabouts, please stop by his Myspace profile, or Emily Machado Missing on Facebook, and show your support.

A year & 1/2 later, Emily is still missing!
It began as a one-man crusade to get his kidnapped daughter back.
CBS 2's Dana Kozlov reports the crusade is about to go global.
Former Berwyn resident Michael Sanchez is ready to fly to South America to find his daughter Emily himself.
He knows she's there and has been since she was kidnapped by her mother more than a year ago. He hasn't seen or talked to her since.
You may be surprised to learn that Sanchez isn't even remotely alone.

This statement continues to bounce around in my head. I am hardly surprised. Parental abduction is something I post about quite frequently. Just look at some of the links and clicky pics on my sidebar!
A simple google search on parental abudctions will reveal many left-behind-parents, reaching out for help...
through online groups, forums, and blogs, across the globe!
