Katherine Rusholme, 23, from Sunderland had a promising career working for wayward Lib Dem MP, Ed Mitchell. She was taken on as an intern in August last year and quickly took on major responsibility for drafting letters, carrying out research tasks, and helping to organise the constituency office. Katherine was not politically-minded, though her work for Mr Mitchell had awakened a strong sense of the injustices of the world.
Her mother, Maria, told this website:
katie, my kath, has alawys bin a fun-loving girl & enjoyd her friends & parties & didn’t mind a drink once inna while but wen she went to wurk for mr mitchell who is a member of laprlament she started talking about poverty & eqaulity & oporttunty & she had lost of passion for life & making things rihgt. i love you kath my katie my kath come back to me
Because in November last year, Katherine left home to go to Ed Mitchell’s office. She never arrived. She had no reason to run away; she had a loving home and a new relationship.
She’s not the only one. I’ve been hearing about numerous disappearances. Not runaways. Surely not all abductions. No reason to go, nowhere to run to.
Why are they disappearing? Where they going? What is happening to us?
This website is to give hope for the disappeared and to those left behind.
They Aren’t Gone. #tag2012
