'Camp Gyno' Ad About Periods Goes Viral

It's a coming of age moment for girls – but talking about it is still very much taboo. Periods. That time of the month. Aunt Flo's monthly visit.

Well now, a new ad for a tampon starter kit is trying to get that conversation going in a humorous, shame-free way, CNN's Kelly Wallace reports.

This is not your mother's period ad and forget the commercials that made 'Aunt Flo' sound like a horrible relative, in this commercial she is a red bad courage.

"I was the first one to get it so I was like the expert. I became the Camp Gyno," says the young girl in the ad.

With Five million views on YouTube in a week, it has become an internet sensation.

It is the brainchild of HelloFlo.com, a company offering a monthly subscription tampon service and period starter kits for girls.

Maybe Camp Gyno is helping more girls, unlike their moms before them, feel empowered, not ashamed. Period.

Missing Teen's Father Talks to Chris Cuomo

Brett Anderson, the father of 16-year-old Hannah and 8-year-old Ethan- both missing- spoke to CNN's Chris Cuomo. A manhunt is underway for James DiMaggio, who is a suspect in kidnapping his children and killing his wife.

"I can't fathom what happened in Jim's head. He obviously just lost it," Brett Anderson says.

"He's into camping. He could be anywhere. That's why people that are going out to different camp spots, please keep your eyes open. I don't care where it is," he says. "I just have no clue, like I said, it's surreal to me, I can't imagine this even happening."

Possible Sightings of James DiMaggio, Suspected of Murder and Kidnapping

The manhunt is widening for James DiMaggio, who is suspected of kidnapping 16-year-old Hannah Anderson after killing her mother, and possibly her 8-year-old brother Ethan.

The search is expanding to Oregon and Washington after possible sightings of DiMaggio's blue Nissan Versa, CNN's Miguel Marquez reports. [Watch Above Video]

Anyone with information about the case can contact:

-San Diego County Sheriff's Department Homicide Detail at 858-974-2321
-Submit an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477

------------------------

Both sightings were on a remote stretch of highway. The first, in Alturas, California on U-S 395. Hours later a second possible sighting in neighboring Lakeview, Oregon.

The last time Hannah, her brother Ethan, their mother Christina and the family dog were seen alive was Saturday afternoon. They left to spend the night with DiMaggio, a long time family friend, at his home 50 miles away in Boulevard, California. Ethan was supposed to be at football practice 8am Sunday morning. He didn't make it.

Later that night, DiMaggio's house was on fire.

Lieutenant Glenn Giannantonio of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department Homicide Unit spoke to Anchor Chris Cuomo this morning. When asked about specifics of the widening search area, he says:

"Primarily in the state of Oregon, the Oregon state police activated the Amber Alert for the missing people because there were sightings, reported sightings, of Hannah, Ethan and DiMaggio."
