    A teen and baby are missing. After a two-minute package at the top of the 7:00 am news hour, viewers are told if they have any information “to call the Chicago police.”

    AGAIN, that is by far the laziest throwaway line for a news story. Provide an actual phone number, or precinct number, to help others help the police!!!!

    Three weeks ago, I recognized a boy who was featured on the WGN Morning News who the Chicago Police needed help identifying. That story also said “contact Chicago Police if you have information.”

    I spent almost an hour lost in Chicago PD’s “311” system. As I am from Plainfield, I ended up so aggravated that I contacted my local PD, which gave me a direct line to Chicago’s 911 dispatch center.

    THAT department was even MORE useless, and did not even know about the missing child story, and even asked why the hell I was calling them.

    Seriously, two children are missing and every minute is valuable. Walk over to a detective and obtain a phone number to provide to viewers.
