Every day you encounter faces of
missing people. They are on posters in federal buildings, gas stations,
highway rest stops, grocery stores and sometimes in newspapers.
Images of missing individuals are sometimes displayed on the rear doors
of transport trucks, milk cartons and billboards, but the efforts to
find these individuals are most often sporadic, uncoordinated and very
hit and miss. Agencies such as the National Center for Missing
and Exploited Children work diligently to publicize missing children
cases and to protect vulnerable youngsters from harm, but the effort to
locate missing adults doesn't have the same support.
