MidoTech CEO and all around beacon of hope Lara Stryer has been reported missing in the last 24 hours. She was last seen boarding the Slipstream.
On Earth, Lara was well known for being kidnapped by the wretched villain Darwin Verrill before being rescued by her brother. But with Verrill having died on Earth - there's certainly no trace of him in the Fleet - who could be left with a grudge against poor Lara, enough to snatch her away?
If you ask this reporter, there could be no-one so heartless and cruel, which leaves only one explanation: whoever's behind all those disappearances on the Slipstream has claimed another victim! I for one offer my condolences to the Stryer family for their immeasurable loss.
