      Sorry to say this, but why I feel that image is like a 100% badly edited image. I can see the ears look like folded and thick, I see like 2 pair of glasses, and like blurred eyes.
      I can bet that there are 2 over imposed images. One gives me strong vibes of Ralph Macchio when he was a teen.

      She wasn't already ok if her only photo available was in such a poor quality. Still many people in this digital age (where even a common citizen have a life better documented than a powerful emperor hundreds of years ago could only dream of) aren't in any system or have any kind of proof of their identity or even existence. In the 80's it was even worse as digital media was nowhere as widespread nowadays, and physical media is subject to all kind of damages that can occur even when you try to replicate them.

    That missing pic is creepy as hell. Looking at the poster up close, it almost looks like a face overlapping another face. It's so distorted I don't know how a single person can make anything significant out of it. Why someone would post a missing person's photo up just out of the blue in the middle of a broadcast with no information whatsoever is baffling and maybe a sick joke to whomever did this. I would go so far as to say "Joanna Lopez" doesn't exist. But maybe, just maybe, if somehow Joanna does exist, this was never supposed to be made public. My final theory is that maybe this was some sort of weird test run from the station to cause some kind of reaction to the viewers that night. I'm not sure what the purpose behind that would have been, but truth is stranger than fiction.

    My 2 cents:
    1. Joanna Lopez could have been an alias name for an unidentified missing person or victim ie Jane Doe, John Smith, but tailored to reference a particular demographic.
    2. Not having height, weight, etc. as well as being wildly different from usual PSAs could mean they weren't looking for a missing "person" per se...they were looking for a body. She was already dead and due to decomposition or potential dismemberment height and weight wouldn't matter.

They has been too many incidents in the past, and current times unfortunately, that WOC on POC, Native Americans and other ethnicities are ignored. Not due to them performing the very basic requirements of listing those who are marginalized but the utter blatant disregard that LE placed on the value of these victims! We need more to apply immeasurable pressure and demand immediate action on groups that are ignored or automatically classified as a runaway, when the exact opposite is the case in 98% of the time. Hopefully, you featuring Joanna Lopez will one day bring answers and closure that Joanna Lopez and every one those that are ignored due to systemic racism will become a memory and NOT the actions that continue everyday in America! Everyone’s lives are precious and deserve the utmost care and consideration from LE, news agencies, social workers/services and our own complacency in not demanding change. Joanne Lopez is everyone’s daughter, a daughter and minor that deserves protection and proper actions from LE!!

    It looks to me like this wasn't a case in which authorities were optimistic or details were forthcoming- that this was a lukewarm effort to put something out there, in the case of a possibly-missing person who may be named similarly or appeared somewhat like this at the time of her disappearance. An attempt to nail down further details might have only committed what was actually nebulous or unknown to a version which was less accurate.

If I saw this at the time it aired I think it would have sent me into a straight up manic episode.

    This image seems a little different, but I remember a picture like this from back then because my mother always watched "The Tonight Show" because she loved Johnny Carson, and I think she kept watching after he left. Anyway, she kept the TV on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! She only ever turned it off when she was mad about something, so I had to sleep with the TV on in the living room with her (I have 5 other siblings and I never had my own room until I was about 20).
    I remember waking up at like 2 or 3 in the morning and seeing those *MISSING* pictures on the screen and feeling a bit creeped out because of the way the word "missing" was plastered above the picture in all caps... But one night there was this picture of this person, a woman whose eyes couldn't be seen and it just looked evil and strange. A few times I would get up and change the channel just so that picture wouldn't be on the screen!
    One time my mother woke up on the couch (I was sleeping on the floor) and asked what I was doing *(we weren't supposed to touch her food or her TV's)* and she just shrugged her shoulders and said, "The person must be wearing glasses..." which is wild, now that I think about it because SHE needed glasses and never wore them, so how could she see that detail and I couldn't...
    I did think that putting up "missing persons" info overnight was a good way to use the airtime, but this picture (if this IS what I saw) SCARED THE HELL OUT OF ME!

    That creepy picture would’ve absolutely terrified me as I was 9 at the time and so full of crippling fear and anxiety I already had an ulcer (I also have had severe, painful Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis since age 3, with weekly painful injections they had to literally strap me down to a table to be able to administer; thus my chronic pain, timidity, and the scary treatments all contributing to my high anxiety thanks to years of medical trauma.) Just hearing the Unsolved Mysteries theme music wafting from the den when my parents watched it after I’d gone to bed would send me into panicked hysterics and tummy agony. I’m so glad I didn’t see that all-night broadcast of that pic while visiting my Chicago cousins.
    Now as an adult I’m actually into creepy mysteries and true crime. Still have medical PTSD and crippling anxiety as well as of course physically permanent disability from JRA. But at least I can look at that picture and not have to spend the next day in an emergency being seen by a whole team of poking, prodding medical doctors and mental health professionals. Progress!

    I have a really good theory. Maybe they were looking for a body. Meaning they weren’t looking for an actual person, just their lifeless body. This would explain why they didn’t give us a height, weight, or age. It’s very unusual for a psa to just give no information without having a reason for it.

    This may be the only photo the people who reported her missing had. Maybe it wasn't a clear photo to begin with and the bad photocopying made it worse.
    I remember the missing children mailers that you'd get in the 80s and 90s. It was like a long post card with or or two missing children on it. Sent by The National Center For Missing & Exploited Children. Walmart also had a wall of posters with missing child photos. I'm not sure if they still do. Sometimes the photos were not good quality. Sadly there seems to be a lot of missing people in my area and the posters can have these types of fuzzy photos. But most at least have some info pertaining to the last place the person was seen or some vital statistics.
    It's possible there just wasn't much info on Joanna Lopez at the time. While I don't want to 100% assume she was from a troubled home I feel like if she was from a stable one we'd hear more about her even to this day if she was still missing. The possibility that she was a foster runaway is very strong. In which case her birth parents may not have been alive or in any position to advocate for her due to jail, substance abuse or just not caring about her anymore because of abuse ect...
    I just hope it wasn't one of those cases where she was done away with and then reported missing so the parents or guardians don't look guilty. I hope Joanna is still alive and just fine.

    This may sound like a bit of a stretch, but I feel like the police just did this as a means of raising awareness for the program, so that more people will watch it and thus increase the likelihood of the other missing people being found. Doing this as a means of scaring does sound slightly immoral, but if I saw this at 3am I would surely remember every other person shown and make sure to look out for the next missing persons broadcast. Similarily to Selene Delgato, I feel like these were both public recognition stunts.
