Number of missing persons connected to scam targeting Chinese …

Police have found one of three missing Chinese students who may have fallen victim to a ransom scam targeting their families overseas.

On Saturday, police identified a third Chinese student studying in Toronto who they said may have disappeared as a result of the scam.

NC’s CUE Center begins annual tour to highlight missing persons cases

— Working to bring missing people home is the goal of North Carolina’s Community United Effort’s Center for Missing Persons.

Volunteers from the organization started their multi-state “On the Road to Remember” tour on Friday. This year’s tour will highlight about 90 missing persons cases, some of which have ties to the Triangle.

Kara Roberts has been filled with questions for the last 17 years. Her sister, Leah, went missing in 2000, when she was a student at North Carolina State University.

Leah’s car was found in Washington state nine days after she took an unannounced road trip, but she was never found.

“The law enforcement has been very active in her case out there, but unfortunately, we still don’t have answers,” Roberts said.

Leah is one hundreds of thousands of people who are reported missing each year, and the nonprofit is working to put a dent in the number.

They highlight different

Guest column: Missing persons a ‘silent mass diaster’ – Navajo

Imagine that you woke up today and realized that one of your loved ones never came home. Your phone calls go unanswered as minutes turn into hours. You think to yourself, “This is not normal.” You try to retrace their habits and patterns but no answers come. Knowing deep down something is wrong, you call the police. A mixed response is likely. Most police agencies will take a report and enter your family member as missing, but often little else can be done. Why?

The fact is, adults have the right to go missing. They are able to walk away from their lives, jobs and families at will. Historically, without evidence of foul play, these cases were closed without further action. Yet, for the family of the loved one who never came home, the incident remained forever — an unending nightmare. Tragically, this is an experience many families in our society

Madison County Health Department hosts Missing Persons Day … – WBBJ

JACKSON, Tenn. — Those who may be looking for a lost family member or loved one were given some hope today at the Madison County Health Department.

The State Department of Health paired with the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System to host Missing Persons Day.

The goal is to help families reconnect with their missing loved ones.

Loria Jenkins drove all the way from Lawrence County to provide DNA samples of her missing son, of more than a year, to enter into the database.

“I think it’s wonderful that they can help people. It makes us feel better that somebody is out hunting to find our children or whatever family member we have missing,” Jenkins said.

Organizers of Missing Persons Day say there are currently more than 1,000 missing persons cases in Tennessee.
