It has been awhile…

October 27, 2016

Good Morning! It has been awhile since I have written. As I am preparing to give a talk on missing persons, I noticed a lot has changed since I first got involved with helping the families of the missing. First and foremost, New York State is providing much better training and information for law officers. New York State now has a mandated missing and unidentified person repository.  Hallejuah! Missing college students under age 21 are treated as minors. Volunteer organizations are burgeoning. The Nation-wide consciousness of the missing is growing. There are more and more conferences for the law enforcment, government agencies and for the families of the missing. Missing people are being found in much greater numbers. But there is still a lot of work to be done. There is still no mandatory nation wide data base. (Namus is doing a miraculous job but it is still not required to report the missing and unidentified.) In some jurisdictions, reports of the missing are still not taken seriously and swiftly.

Come and join the conversation on Sunday, October 31, 2016 at the Daniel Pierce Library in Grahamsville, New York at 2 p.m. I will be talking about open missing persons cases in the area and talking about ways to get involved and keep your own family safe.
