Tyler Perry is offering a $100,000 reward for information in the cold-case of two missing Florida men, Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos. The men went missing from the Naples-area three months apart in 2003.

Tyler Perry was joined at a news conference on Thursday by Rev. Al Sharpton and NAACP head Ben Jealous to discuss the┬ámissing-person investigations of the two men. Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos disappeared after crossing paths with┬áCollier County Sheriff’s Deputy Steven Calkins. He was never charged but was fired in 2004.

I echo Tyler Perry’s sentiment that the media doesn’t pay too much attention to missing-persons cases involving blacks and Hispanics. Terrance Williams was black and Felipe Santos was an illegal immigrant from Mexico.
