Finder the True Story of a Pri

Marilyn Greene, Author, Gary Provost, Author, Gary Provost, Photographer Crown Publishers $18.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-517-56490-5
In relating the story of how Greene came to make a career of searching for missing persons, the authors also provide commentary on the media hysteria that has evolved from a seemingly national paranoia over abducted children. They maintain that most often missing young persons are like Greene's own son at one time, runaways who ``want us to find them and bring them home.'' Chronicled are cases that have taken Greene all over the country, noting successes in finding runaway minors, children spirited away by a parent or relative and missing adults who regret disappearing, cases often given low priority by police. A divorced mother of two with family problems, Greene surmounted prejudices against her to gain recognition in the male-dominated world of the private investigator. Altruism and perseverance are ingredients of her career tale. First serial to Redbook; film rights to Warner Brothers; author tour. (July)
