Tyler Perry, Rev Al Sharpton, NAACP push for answers in cold cases of 2 missing men in Florida

Filmmaker Tyler Perry, the Rev. Al Sharpton and the president of the NAACP are pushing for more of an investigation in Florida into a decade-old case of two men who went missing after separate encounters with a sheriff's deputy.

A news conference in Naples was set for Thursday by the three men, including Ben Jealous of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. They will discuss next steps for the missing person investigations of Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos.

Santos and Williams disappeared three months apart in the Naples area in 2003 after crossing paths with Collier County sheriff's Deputy Steven Calkins. He was never charged but was fired the next year.

Perry says the media is not paying enough attention to missing person cases involving minorities.
