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 missing-person investigations of the two men. Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos disappeared after crossing paths with Collier 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.
