PLEASE GIVE: THE DAVID BIRD FAMILY TRUST

birdmissing.jpg

Dec. 17, 2014 -- On January 11, 2014, Wall Street Journal reporter and IAPE member David Bird left his house in Millington, N.J., to take a brief walk to get some fresh air. He never returned.

Despite a widespread manhunt by the Long Hill, N.J., police and volunteers, nothing has turned up since last January to indicate what happened to David.

To its credit, Dow Jones kept David on the payroll through the end of July. However, effective August 1, David's status was changed to unpaid leave of absence.

This means that David's wife Nancy, a stay-at-home wife and mother caring for their two children, has no income with which to provide for her family. Imagine the anguish she faces each and every day — not knowing where her husband is or what happened to him AND wondering how she will manage her financial hardship. [The company is maintaining the family's health-care benefits.]

Imagine if this happened to you. | More
