* In ''Literature/TheLovelyBones''
--->My name was Salmon, like the fish; first name Susie. I was fourteen when i was murdered on December 6,1973. In newspaper photos of missing girls from the seventies, most looked like me; white girls with mousy brown hair. This was before kids of all races and genders started appearing on milk cartons or in the daily mail. It was still back when people believed things like that didn't happen"

She discovers this when she dreams about the whereabouts of two kids, and then recognizes them from their pictures on a milk carton. She tracks down additional kids in the same manner, but by book 2, she's mostly switched to having someone in the "Missing Persons" department send her pictures of kids who are genuinely in need of help.
