The Press does not 'lock' any articles. We utilize a metered-base subscription model, similar to many publications across the country in which any single user may read seven articles in a month before being asked to subscribe to The Press.
If a reader is not seeing the entire article, it means that he or she has already read seven articles in the past month and must subscribe to read any more articles in their entirety.

So---maybe the correct word would be block. Same difference---this article should be available to everyone if it can help the police and this woman. This is a small-town newspaper----helping one of our own who may be in danger or in trouble should be the primary concern----not subscriptions.

Mr Sutton,
I have been a subscriber for 23 years and every article requires me to sign in. Every time.
Very frustrating. This doesn't happen on any other site. Perhaps something is broken.
Thank you.

Unlocking articles like this would be greatly appreciated.

I agree. I subscribe but feel stories like this should NOT be locked. The more people that can be reached, the more likely someone will be able to help this poor woman.

Woman missing. Time could be of the essence. Locked article. GENIUS. thanks for putting dollars above lives.

Yup, if you want the community to rally then go ahead and lock the story.......it seems to be happening more and more on this site. Pay or die. Agree that time is of the essence and every second of (unblocked) info is crucial.$

What a bunch of Socialists looking for a free lunch. You're less interested in helping find the woman (a photo and physical description is provided) than in titillating yourselves with what your hope are lurid details.

Free lunch? None of the above posters seem to be asking for unlocked access across the board --- just for ones where, you know, a member of our community is missing and could be in danger.
