    In an effort to try to help find missing people who may be in shelters across the country, or deemed as "homeless", I'm going to try to post on this thread any web, or news articles that contain photos from shelters or soup kitchens.

    I know my mother would be able to spot one of her children when they were just a speck on the horizon... perhaps someone in the background of one of these photos may be a missing person?

    Frequently these photos have the backgrounds blurred, or the people are photographed with their backs to the camera. It isn't a crime to be down on your luck, or to be missing. I do not wish to invade anyone's privacy, instead I'm hoping to have an enormous stroke of luck and possibly provide a lead to a family who has a missing loved one.

    As Lorne Boulet's Aunt said in another thread " This is like a needle in a haystack during a wind storm". So the odds aren't great... but maybe, just maybe, they are worth it?

    Also, if you have the time, check out some of the links that are NOT in your area. People have been known to wander a long ways!

    Finally please be aware that news stories are not always archived. Usually the links expire within 14 days. If you find a photo that may have a family member in the background I would advise you to copy it to your hard drive for safekeeping.

    Just an idea to try to help the families of the missing, lets see how it goes...

    There is a series of photos (six slideshows) about the Heavenly Blessings Ministries Shelter in PENSACOLA, FLORIDA. Mostly photos of volunteers and well known regulars, but a few photos of possible "clients" in the background.

    The story is dated January 27, 2006

    Worth taking a look.

    Can't post any of the photos here as they are all for sale.

    More photos from the same location:

    The above link is the site of Oscar Lazoya, a fine art photographer.

    He has a series of 11 photos (works of art!) taken between 1997-2001 of various people, in Albuquerque, NM.

    This photo is from a website that is no longer up... but I think it represented someone in Oregon, date unknown.

    This photo is from a story about volunteers who participated in the homeless count, in Columbus, Ohio. I don't think there are any homeless people in the photograph... but just in case I posted it.
