18. No one is unhappy that this story has a happy ending.
This might be a big story in Utah, but it's getting NATIONAL coverage.
There is a difference.

This story, and the one in Aruba are getting coverage for two reasons:

1. White, attractive victims.
2. Families with the ability to mobilize and get media attention.

Hundreds of people go missing every single day. Many don't get any attention at all. Very few get national coverage.
