Tour to remember for Missing Peoples 2006 June 08, 2006 4:18 PM

Tour to Remember 10:47 AM Please forward to anyone you know Local missing persons organization prepares for nationwide tour June 5, 2006 10:44 AM EDT WILMINGTON -- CUE Center for Missing Persons volunteers are preparing for their annual nationwide tour. Spanning 16 states in just eight days, the organization will work on over 75 cases. Most of those cases concern missing persons that have been missing for years. CUE Center for Missing Persons Founder Monica Caison said, "We visit all the towns of these missing people to get them new coverage, to get them new interest in the case, we talk to law enforcement ... and really to remind the public that that person is still missing." At every stop on the tour Caison and her team will meet with other volunteers for rallies, typically including family, friends and law enforcement agencies that will continue searching for a loved one. "They can do whatever they want at the rallies, so they can be as big or small as they want. Some will look like a parade when we come through. Others will have a lot of law enforcement cover press-wise," said Caison. At every one of the 30 stops the CUE center will make on their tour next week they'll be posting up posters and handing out everything from flyers to T-shirts, all in an effort to intensify and in some cases revitalize searches. Caison says the tour's purpose is to generate energy to search for a missing person and gives families hope. She said, "the worst feeling a family can feel is that they're forgotten." The CUE Center's nationwide tour kicks off June 9. For more information, you can visit  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Missing Waterbury man's case gets national attention (Waterbury-WTNH, June 10, 2006 7:10 PM) _ The case of a missing man from the Naugatuck Valley gains national attention. Billy Smolinski suddenly disappeared from his Waterbury home nearly two years ago. In all that time his family has never given up hope he will be found and they're joining a national effort to draw attention to his case.. by News Channel 8's Jamie Muro Today's rally was held by the Community United Center (Cue) for Missing Persons at Liberty Park. The North Carolina organization is traveling to 16 Eastern states as part of it's annual Road to Remember tour. There are those at today's rally who have not seen or heard from loved ones in years, like the Smolinski family whose son Billy disappeared almost two years ago. But there are those here who have lost loved ones to violence, like the family of Kathy Hardy or Jessica Keyworth. Kathy died in an arson fire a few months ago in Branford. 16-year-old Jessica Keyworth was found dead in Waterbury two years ago in the stairwell of a home. There have been no arrests for any of these crimes. These events are two fold. They serve as a support system for grieving families, but also put unsolved cases back into the spotlight. "We're not giving up, you know, it could be another 20 years, and I've devoted my life to finding my son, and if son is out there and they hurt them, I'm not giving up," says Janice Smolinski. "There's a lot of support because people really understand what you're feeling, it's a special club that you don't want to belong to, but it helps," says Betty Barrett, Lost daughter in arson fire. Every family member is pleading with the public that if anyone has any information on any of these cases, call police. Smolinski's case will also be profiled on America's Most Wanted.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
