Sorry, this story has been posted on FR before and when you find the original article Romney is not as presented here.
Great re-writing of history however.
Read post #250, it has the original article.
From the article: Gay, who has worked for Bain for eight years, kept his ordeal to himself, confiding only in Romney.
But Wednesday, Romney decided to tell the other 11 managing directors, and they decided that finding a missing daughter was more important than operating a $ 1 billion investment firm.
The executives decided not only to give their time but their money, paying all expenses for the search for the fifth of Gay’s seven children.
That night, 16 employees flew to New York, turned a function room of the Laguardia Marriott Hotel into a “war room,” and got printing giant R. R. Donnelly to print 200,000 fliers with a color picture of Melissa. They also hired a private investigator and set up an 800-number hot line.
Another 40 employees caught an early morning shuttle yesterday, and later were joined by about 250 colleagues from other Wall Street firms, including Goldman Sachs, Price Waterhouse and Bankers Trust.
“Most of us have children,” said Stephen Pagliuca, 44, a Bain managing director with four children. “That’s the most important thing in our lives. It wasn’t even a question. We just decided to do it.”
