    Justice Interrupted


    This is a brand new venture featuring 3 powerful women combining forces for victims rights.

    Susan Murphy Milano, victims advocate, Robin Sax, LA Prosecutor, and Stacy Dittrich, former detective will be a powerhouse of help for all kinds of crime victims.......their radio show will definitely be one to listen to for interesting conversation and details of the cases that are brought to them to investigate.

    "The Justice Interrupted team investigates the crime, so those responsible do the time."

    Their website is under construction and should be up this fall.

    Each of these women brings a different perspective and insight to the business of crime. I am copying a brief biography of each from the blog and you will see that this is a formidable group to be reckoned with. I wish them all the best of luck on this much needed venture and success for each victim who comes to them.

    Project Jason is pleased to announce its newest program, the Awareness Angels Network.
    ( More information can be found at http://www.projectjason.org/awareness.html)

    It’s a fact that one in six missing persons are found as a result of a visual aid, such as a billboard or a poster, thus the importance of poster dissemination in missing person cases. Placing posters is an easy way for you to get involved, and it can make a real difference for the families of the missing.

    With your Awareness Angels Network (AAN) membership, you’ll receive notifications via email about new missing person cases, updates on current cases, and recovered persons. These notifications inlcude a link to a special Awareness Angels Network poster you can print and place.

    Once you are subscribed, the email notifications you receive include a link to the printable poster for a specific missing person, plus a link to Project Jason’s forum, where you can keep up on the latest case news and information.

    We encourage you to:


    *Print copies of this poster and display them near your home, at your workplace and in public places.

    *Give copies of this poster to friends and associates who can place posters near their homes and workplaces.

    *Give copies to friends or associates who travel so they can place the posters in more wide-reaching areas.


    When the missing person is located, we will notify you. At that time, you will be asked to remove any indoor, outdoor and Internet postings of this person.


    Email notifications will be sent to you upon the following events:

    New Case: Project Jason receives a new case submission from the family of a missing person and completes the verification process. New cases are persons who may have been missing for any period of time and the family is registering with us for the first time.

    Updated Case: This notification will be sent out upon any substantial change of information on the original Project Jason poster. This could include the addition of an age progression photo, or new information received that could aid in location of that missing person.

    Annual Missing Date Notice: On or before the annual missing date of persons registered with Project Jason, an AAN notification will be sent out to remind the members that the person is still missing and to request poster placement.

    Law Enforcement Request: This notification will be sent out upon the request of law enforcement who may seek a targeted distribution area. There may be evidence that the missing person may be in a region other than the one he/she disappeared from, and poster dissemination is needed in this area. Project Jason officials may also, at their discretion, and based upon reliable sources, request distribution in another area.

    Location Notice: A person whose case was previously sent out on the AAN has been located alive. Any additional information that can be made public will be found on the link included in the notification.

    Deceased Location Notice: A person whose case was previously sent out on the AAN has been found deceased. Any additional information that can be made public will be found on the link included in the notification.


    Project Jason has divided the US into 14 geographical regions for this program. You may subscribe to as many regions as you wish. We encourage multiple region subscriptions since we’re a very mobile society. It doesn’t take long for a person to travel great distances. In some cases, a missing person may not necessarily be in the same area or location where he/she was last seen. Your notification emails will cover missing persons who were last seen in the region to which you subscribed.

    Once you subscribe to a region, you will be offered a special widget which you may add to your website, blog, MySpace, Facebook, etc. The widget is our thank you for being an Awareness Angels Network member. It will also serve to encourage others to become members, as the widget links right to our site. The more helping eyes, ears, and hands we have, the greater the odds of success.

    From now until about mid-September, the focus of the program will be outreach to gain subscribers. When we begin the email notifications, it is important to have a reasonable subscriber base. In mid-September, we will begin to send the notifications on a more regular basis.

    We're asking interested persons to subscribe AND to send this message to others.


    Remember the facts: One in every 6 are found because of visual means, such as a poster. You can make a difference with your Awareness Angels Network membership!

    If you haven't subscribed yet, read what the families of the missing have to say about poster placement by our Awareness Angels Network members:

    The totality of my life has only one purpose, to find my missing daughter and bring her home safe. Every other aspect of my life has come to a halt. Thank you very much for placing posters of my child.
    Reza Jou, father of missing Donna Jou

    My heart is lifted and hope shines every time someone displays a poster of my son. I believe it is through the love and kindness of the public that my son will eventually be found; but without their concern and active participation, I fear this agonizing mystery will continue to go unresolved. Please, please help me find my son.
    Vicki Barnard, Mother of Missing Ahren Barnard


    Each poster placed carries the hopes of our family, that someone, somewhere, knows something, and will step forward to shine light on the darkness of loss. So, from my heart I thank you for each poster hung, and for each prayer quietly spoken.
    Christy Davis, mother of missing Michael "Austin" Davis

    I want to thank each and every one of you who hangs a poster for my son, Brian. This is the only way that I may hopefully find him and bring him home so that I may have some peace in my life someday. Someone knows what happened, and only with your help can I keep my son alive in the public’s eyes.
    Randy, Brian Shaffer's Dad


    Time Marches on, yet it stands so still. Your smallest remembrance or recognition could help bring our loved one home. Thanks to all those who care.
    Donajean Kapp, Sister of Dori A. Myers, Abducted 01-11-06

    Words cannot express what it means when strangers care enough to place posters for us. The memory of this act is forever etched in our hearts.
    John Lopez, Jeff and Lesa Stivers, Father, Uncle and Aunt of missing Marissa Lopez


    (You'll be able to read more soon from the families we serve on the Awareness Angels Network page on our main website.)


    About the Awareness Angels Network logo you see pn our program page:

    The angel's wings represent the members of the Awareness Angels Network, who will answer our plea for help and place posters to help find a missing person. In this representation, the father was ready to go out and place more posters of his missing daughter, but just then, she was found and returned to his loving arms. The angel's wings surround them, also representing the love and concern we have in our hearts for others, even those whom we have never met. The logo tells the story of what CAN happen when we all work together to make a difference.

    With your help, we'll have many happy endings.

    Subscribe here today: http://www.projectjason.org/aan.html

    Note: You can also subscribe to our Project Jason newsletters on the website noted above. You may choose either the Supporter's Newsletter (general news about Project Jason and the missing) or the Family Member Newsletter. (specialized information of interest to family members of missing persons) These selections are below the AAN regions in the list. The newsletters will begin publication in September.

    All missing persons are loved by someone, and their families deserve to find the answers they seek in regards to the disappearance. Please help us help them. Subscribe to the Awareness Angels Network today, and ask your friends to as well. Thank you.

    There is always hope.

    National Center for Missing and Exploited Children Austin, TX Branch

    Making Central Texas safer for children
    9/29/2008 7:33 PM
    By: Karina Kling

    Realizing your child is missing can be a parent's worst nightmare.

    An estimated 800,000 children are reported missing every year in the United States and in 2006 more than 60,000 were reported missing in Texas alone and Texas law enforcement is taking a step forward to keep kids safe.

    It's been almost seven years since Rachel Cooke of Georgetown went missing during an afternoon run.

    New missing child alert may help save lives
    By Andrea Bullard
    Tuesday, November 18, 2008 at 1:37 p.m.

    <snipped>
    The program uses phone calls to alert people living in the area of where a child is reported missing. They can make 1000 phone calls in just 60 seconds. While the program is called “A Child is Missing”, they also alert people when college students, elderly, disabled and teenagers disappear.

    Silver Alert
    Posted: 12:12 PM Oct 8, 2008
    Last Updated: 8:52 PM Oct 8, 2008

    With the stroke of his pen, Governor Charlie Crist has created a Silver
    Alert system in Florida.

    Similar to Amber Alerts, the Silver alert is designed to create a wide spread lookout for seniors who wander from their surroundings.

    It was created after Mary Lallucci’s mother checked herself out of a Pinellas County nursing home and accidentally drove into the intracoastal waterway.

    “And I hope our tragedy saves lives, and I know it wills saves lives.
    That’s the only thing that brings comfort to my family is that our
    tragedy will save someone else’s life. And we thank all of you.”

    The state plan is patterned after a Pinellas County plan that has been
    in effect 3 months.

    To learn more about the Florida Silver Alert program, visit www.fdle.state.fl.us

    Forever searching group

    I am one of the co-founders of Forever Searching, the group and myself are located in the UK, although we have active members in the States, Europe, Canada and Australia.

    The sole purpose of Forever Searching is to raise awareness to missing children and adults, on a global basis. This is explained in more detail on our site. www.foreversearching.com

    How we operate - A case-worker is allocated to a case, they are responsible for raising awareness to their allocated missing person. They work closely with the family advising the family of all awareness activity, in some cases taking direction from the family.

    The case-workers have a small team of people working with them, supporting them, carrying out various activities, which i will attempt to explain in a little more detail for you.

    We distribute the missing person's poster to what we deem as "Priority" focus areas such as hospitals, schools, supermarkets etc in the area of the disappearance or in an area where there is a strong possibility that the person might be. We ask the recipient of the mail to print off the poster and display on notice-boards etc, in as many public areas as possible.

    The mails are individually tailored to the missing person, telling the recipient the details of the disappearance and contact details if the person is seen or known to them

    We use social net-working sites such as my-space, bebo, Sonica, and Face-book to raise awareness - we usually will have the poster of the missing person and we advise about the circumstances of the disappearance.

    We create a video of the missing person, working with the family in respect of content. The video is uploaded to You-Tube onto our channel. Foreversearchingkids. These video's are also released through the social net-working sites.

    We create press-releases, which we distribute to media to raise awareness of the case.

    We lobby government agencies in respect of changes in relation to children's rights and laws governing missing children. We usually do this, to support the family of a missing child who need an issue raised at government level.

    We are all volunteers, we have recognized charity status in the UK. We do not charge any family, for any of the activity that is carried out by the group.

    We have a private forum for the families where they can talk and share best practices with each other.

    Forever Searching is very focused on the family aspect - to-gether with the family we want to ensure that the profile of the missing person is kept high in the public domain - and that every opportunity is taken and every avenue is investigated to ensure that the missing person does not just become another statistic.

    To us visibility of the missing person is KEY.

    Please if you require any further information about Forever Searching, do not hesitate to contact me, we don't promise miracles, but we do promise committement and passion for this cause.

    If there is a family out there that needs our support - please do not hesitate to contact me - we will do everything in our power to ensure that your loved missing one is not forgotten.

    Questionnaire helps Orlando police break spiral of domestic abuse
    Mark Schlueb | Sentinel Staff Writer
    February 11, 2009
    <snipped>
    Orlando cops will soon carry a new weapon when they respond to domestic-violence calls: a questionnaire designed to predict whether a victim could eventually be killed by an abuser.
    It might not sound like much, but experts say the short list of questions represents a radical shift in the way domestic battery is handled -- and could cut the city's rising murder rate.
    "This is a huge, outside-the-box step for OPD. It's this kind of thinking that saves lives," said Carol Wick, CEO of Harbor House of Central Florida, which runs a shelter, hotline and other services for domestic-violence victims.
    Too often, domestic violence spirals into murder, records show. Eight of Orlando's 42 homicides last year were elated to domestic violence.
    But few of those victims had contact with domestic-violence advocates, who typically wait until their abuse hotline rings or a victim walks in the door looking for help.

    That's about to change.In a few weeks, Orlando officers who respond to a domestic-violence call will be required to go over the questionnaire -- known as a "threat-assessment checklist" -- with victims. It's designed to determine which cases are similar to ones that have ended in death. It includes questions such as "Is there a firearm in the house?" and "Has your partner been stalking, following or watching you?"

    A Harbor House advocate will check the questionnaires and contact individuals whose scores are high enough that experts think they are in grave danger.
    Judges also will have a copy of the questionnaire when an accused batterer makes a first appearance in court. And caseworkers who deal with Orange County families under scrutiny by the Florida Department of Children and Families will use a similar checklist.
    But Orlando may be the only Florida city besides Jacksonville that will soon require its officers to complete the questionnaire in all domestic-violence cases.

    Do you need help?
    If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship, help is available. Here is a list of Central Florida domestic-violence hotlines:
    *Orange County: Harbor House, Orlando, 407-886-2856 * Seminole County: Safe House of Seminole, 407-330-3933 * Osceola County: Help Now of Osceola County, Kissimmee, 407-847-8562 * Lake County: Haven of Lake and Sumter Counties, Leesburg, 352-753-5800 * Volusia County: Domestic Abuse Council, 386-255-2102 * Polk County: Peace River Center -- Domestic Violence Shelter, 863-413-2700 (Lakeland)

    Peace4 the Missing


    We are a network and support group for families of missing persons and victims of domestic violence and other crimes.

    We do not work cases, nor solve cases, but we try to connect members seeking help with their cases to an organization or people who do.

    We have many members who have missing loved ones, many members who are a part of the vast network of organizations, private investigators, law enforcement, domestic violence advocates. We are quite diverse.

    We are about support and encouragement along with finding ways to make positive change through networking and open dialogue.

    Thus our "mission"...........

    This is a supportive "haven" intended to foster dialogue and sharing of resources involving Missing Persons Awareness, Supportive Missing Persons Loved Ones Interaction, Domestic Violence Issues as it relates to Mothers and Networking between Missing Persons and Domestic Violence Prevention Organizations. We do not focus on "debating" issues, finding fault nor picking apart any of our fellow "family members" of Peace4.

    Question The children of missing persons

    I have been brainstorming an idea and decided to see what you all think.
    I was thinking of figuring out how to start a foundation that recognizes the children of missing parents, by providing them a gift on their birthday and holidays in honor of the missing parent. There are many children who's parent's have been listed on a missing person's list. We never think of the children, the focus is always on the missing person. I made Kellisue's daughter a massive Easter Basket last year in honor of her Mom. The basket made her so happy, I felt good giving it to her. This sparked my interest in pursuing this project if I can figure how to get it off the ground.
    We will never forget you Kellisue Ackernecht

    When your child is missing, a family survival guide.

    Good information for any family member that is missing.

    A new Database for Missing and Unidentified

    This database is brand new but growing daily. It is very informative, intuitive and interactive. You can search by more than one term and you can see each case file or photo without clicking. Just move your mouse around. Only Missing Persons cases are loading right now, but UIDS coming within days. More cases are loaded every day. Check it out!
