Episode 1: Missing Children

The Band of the Hawk

Underground Pyramid - Episode 1 - written by Styles Fury

Missing children, found adults, and the Deep, deep sea


Major news outlets were either confounded or disinterested in reports of missing child 'reappearances' in both the Third and Fifth Wards.  Since late last December, a number of children, previously designated as missing for a many years by both family members and Houston authorities were located and  identified.  At least five of these children- Jamal Greene, Lucia Gomez-Ramirez, and Wanda Thomas of Dallas and Kelly Dupree and Randall Gray of the Spring Branch area- are now of legal adult age.  Only Wanda Thomas, 19, would allow an interview and give a statement.  After assuring the reporter that authorities and her parents were aware of her current residence, she offered only that "the inner city needs our attention now, as it has provided many a soul solace and guidance during these days of concern.  The children of the Underground Pyramid are well acquainted with the oceans of the hungry.  It is this deep sea from which we are all born, and will eventually return."
Miss Thomas' parents, Richard and Cinda Lee, refused to comment.
