Hey NECN, this is how you report a story.

In today's Boston Globe, Peter DeMarco reports on the story of missing student, Maura Murray.

A student vanishes, and none knows why.
At about 7 that night, while taking a sharp turn on Wild Ammonoosuc Road in Woodsville, N.H., Murray lost control and slammed into a snow bank. Shaken by the accident, and apparently intoxicated, Murray told a witness she didn't need help, local police said. The witness went to call the police and by the time they arrived Murray was gone.
NECN reported on the same story but neglected to report that she was in an accident last week and that she might have been drinking. Also, when one of her friends said "Right now reasons don't matter as to why she went up there," the reporter didn't seem to see any need to follow up.

I hope she's found safe soon.
