    How can 50 people not notice someone leaving with a child?

    Vinyette is on Project Jason's current 18 Wheel Angel campaign. A special poster has been made for her and can be downloaded and printed for placement. More information about the program, and the link for the poster can be found here:

    Project Jason - Assistance for families of the missing

    In addition to the campaign, Vinyette is also featured in a trucking publication called Through the Gears. This free magazine is distributed in truck stops nationwide.

    Through the Gears is one of JB Scott's many publications. In partnership with Project Jason, they feature one missing person per month. You can pick up your free copies at a local truck stop, but if it's far from you, you may want to call and ask if they carry that magazine. These are NOT with the regular for purchase magazines. At my truck stop, they are in a special rack outside the main truck stop door. At another truck stop, they are in a hallway between the store and the trucker's lounge.

    Through the Gears has a circulation of about 150,000.

    You can also see the current campaign information on this JB Scott webpage: 18 Wheel Angels

    We hope this helps in the search for Vinyette.

    Two Missing Person Cases Baffling Police

    Seventeen-thousand – that’s how many people go missing in Chicago every year. Ninety-eight percent of them are located, but CBS 2’s Bill Kurtis reports on two cases that have baffled police.

    Kathy Teague’s daughter, Vinyette, disappeared on June 15, 1983.

    An age progression has been done to show us how she might look today.

    “I cry every day,” Kathy said
