The case of missing Washington intern Chandra Levy has attracted national attention, and one area it's highlighting is the difficulty in handling adult missing person cases. Unlike missing children, adults who disappear are often thought to go under their own power, and resources for tracking them are scarce. NPR's Eric Westervelt reports on the case of another missing woman that has gone unsolved for 9 years, despite the efforts of police and family.
