NYS Missing Person’s Day

with one comment

NYS Missing Person’s Day was held today at the NYS museum.  I was fortunate enough to attend, although I wish I had gotten there earlier.  There were many familiar faces which is always bitter-sweet.  There were some faces that were absent, I didn’t see a display for Jaliek but his picture was there on the wall and in the presentations.

Kellisue Ackernecht had a nice display with branches from Frog Hollow where her car was found in flames.  People were asked to write a message and hang it on the branch, a very unique display.  Ashley Marie Carroll, Lutricia Steele, Tammie McCormick, George LaForest, Audrey May Herron and Suzanne Lyall were also represented.  Of course all of this would not happen without the drive of Douglas and Mary Lyall whose daughter Suzanne has been missing since March 2, 1998.  They Lyall’s have turned their tragedy into a means to provide support and information to families facing similar situations.  They are an amazing couple and I pray they find the answers that they have been searching for over the past 14 years.

Edward Suk from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) was the keynote speaker in the afternoon.  He provided an overview of  the services that NCMEC offers as well as some statistics that were very informative.  He also explained the role technology plays in missing person cases, from predators on-line to how GPS is used in locating missing people.  It was an enlightening presentation and I could have listened to him for hours.

The missing should never be forgotten …everybody counts.
