There comes a time in everyone’s life when everything that they call “normal” grinds to a halt. An unexpected illness, a bad car accident, a house fire ..or when a family member does not come home. We take it for granted that our loved one will be in our lives, but when they go missing the pain can be heart wrenching.
Did you know that 2300 new missing people’s cases occur every day? 800,000 active cases a year. These statistics sound like they are from a third-world country, but they are not. These are United States statistics.
For the parent, spouse or sibling of a missing person a unique circumstance exists. Unlike the passing of a loved one, there is no way to find peace. Closure. Even when people are the victims of violent crimes there is at least some medicum of closure for the family when the offender is brought to justice and receives their sentence.
But closure for the family of a missing person? For anyone who is missing a beloved family member, these are always going to be questions: What happened? Are they still out there? Are they coming home? This experience has to be one of the most difficult anyone could ever have the displeasure to go through.
Fortunately, a small measure of hope does exist. Like a case in Cleveland, Ohio, where three women
were located and reunited with their families after 10 years. Or the case of Mrs. Suiter, who was reunited with her son Tommy after many years apart, because she posted his picture on Video Locators.
We don’t have to tell a person to never give up hope finding their loved ones, because they never do.
We’re just here to help; you can help, too.
Take a few minutes, look at a few pictures on our site, and there might be someone you know that is missing.
Together, we could bring them home.
