Searching for loved one 20 years later

11/20/07

CHARLOTTE — Every year, thousands of people are reported missing in the United States, many of which remain unsolved.

“My daughter that she’s holding in one of those pictures is now a college student,” said Paula Forest of her missing sister. “A whole lifetime has passed. And Rhonda was not the type of person to be gone from home; she was more of a homebody.”

Forest and her family is still searching for Rhonda Baucom 20 years after her disappearance. She went missing from her apartment complex on May 18, 1987.

“I don’t believe she’s alive but I can’t believe in my heart that she’s dead until I have someone buried,” said Forest.

Forest and her family is still searching for Rhonda Baucom 20 years after her disappearance. She went missing from her apartment complex on May 18, 1987.

A former police officer, Forest said she sees a vast improvement in the way missing persons cases are handled. She also said she is happy to see the media attention given to more recent cases; attention she said her sister’s disappearance never received.

Marks, Scars: Clarke had a full beard in 1983. He has a previous neck injury and also has a burn scar on his right knee.

Circumstances of Disappearance
Clarke became estranged from his family after joining the L’Abri Christian Fellowship of England in 1982. He began having problems with loved ones and some friends after joining the organization.
Clarke was last seen by his parents in January 1982. He also sought treatment for fatigue from a North Carolina doctor at that time. His parents last heard from him in January 1983.

Investigation by NC authorities showed that Clarke may have been placed on a plane by a member of the L’Abri Fellowship in early December 1983. He possibly flew to either Baltimore, Maryland or Washington DC. Clarke apparently then traveled to Asheville, NC by bus. He stayed in a motel while in the city on December 24, 1983.
Clarke then rented a car and drove to Tuckaseegee, NC with a friend. The two arrived in Atlanta, Georgia, at which time Clarke dropped the friend off and continued to Columbia, South Carolina to visit a friend.

He stayed with his friend for three days before returning to his hometown of Tuckaseegee, NC. Clarke’s friends informed investigators that he did not want his parents to know that he was in Tuckaseegee during that time.

Clarke led a transient lifestyle. His family told the authorities that he did not possess any credit cards and paid for all purchases with cash.

There has been no sign of Clarke since December 1983. The friends he was in contact with told investigators they had not heard from since that time.

CUE Center National Tour Purpose and Inspiration

leahoveralls The annual tour was created to generate new interest in cold cases of missing people across our nation. The inspiration came in 2004 from the case of North Carolina college student Leah Roberts, who had gone on a cross-country trip of self-exploration. Her wrecked and abandoned vehicle was found, but Leah is still missing. Leah’s case went cold and interest faded until CUE volunteers set out on a grueling 14-day trip to retrace her route and inform the media of all those who were missing in the path of the tour. In the years to follow, it only seemed right to keep hope alive after families across the country voiced the need for more help and supported the tour idea.

National Tour Objective

The national road tour, called “On the Road to Remember,” is an awareness campaign that focuses on missing persons cases that have gone cold or have not received appropriate media coverage on the local level – much less the national level.. The tour, which travels through many states annually, provides that attention.

In all cases of missing people, it is vital to inform the public of the missing person’s circumstances quickly and to disseminate that information to the media and the public. In most cases where details are released immediately to the public through an organized campaign, the public brings forth information that aids in the investigation and or the location of the victim. The media plays a significant role in getting the word out on the behalf of the missing person and should be recognized as a vital resource to any investigation.

Interest in many of the cases we have featured in previous tours has been renewed. The media has learned about local cases they were unaware of; case investigations have been renewed, and searches conducted. Information has resulted in new leads in some cases, and has even helped identify an unknown decedent and in 2008 solved a cold case of twenty eight years. And finally, each tour some of the missing featured have been found from various efforts, which is the main reason we conduct the tour despite the toll it takes on our all-volunteer staff.

It is the belief of the CUE Center for Missing Persons that all investigations, the public, volunteers and the media should work in collaboration on cases involving missing children and adults; until this happens, their will continue to be cases of the missing labeled “cold” or “inactive.”

About the Tour Honoree

In keeping the tradition of the tour – an honoree is selected each year, one who needs fair coverage of their disappearance. In 2010 honoree will be announced. See below for past tour honorees

2004 – Leah Roberts      2005 – Kent Jacobs      2006 – Molly Datillo      2007 – Anthony Allen

2008 – Jeremy Alex      2009 – Rachel Cooke

Kynande Bennett

Missing Since: 09/29/02
Missing from: Whiteville, North Carolina
Classification: Endangered Missing
Date Of Birth: 08/24/98
Age at disappearance: 4
Height: 3’10”
Weight: 90 lbs.
Hair Color: Brown/Black
Eye Color: Brown
Race: Black
Gender: Female
Distinguishing Characteristics: Light complexion. Pierced ears.
Birthmark on her arm in the shape of a seashell. Her hair was styled
in small braids tied with small bows and/or barrettes.
Clothing: Gray FUBU t-shirt, blue jeans, white socks and black
sneakers.

Details of Disappearance
Kynande was reportedly last seen by her mother, Vartasha “Tasha” McCullough, at a K-Mart department store at 5:00 p.m. They resided in Conway, South Carolina and were visiting Kynande’s uncle in Whiteville, North Carolina that day. At first McCullough claimed Kynande disappeared in an aisle of the store, but she later changed her story and said she walked into the store and thought Kynande was behind her, but turned around and she was gone.
Nobody remembered seeing the child with her mother in K-Mart that day. Investigators claim that there is no evidence that Kynande was even in the state at the time. No one other than Kynande’s parents saw her in the two days before she was reported missing. Authorities later discovered biological evidence in McCullough’s apartment that suggested a physical assault had taken place. The evidence was matched through DNA to Kynande.

Kynande’s parents (pictured below) were both arrested in February 2003 and charged with homicide by child abuse in connection with their daughter’s case. On October 6, 2005, the charges against Kevin Bennett were dropped due to lack of sufficient evidence. McCullough will stand trial beginning February 6, 2006. On February 10, 2006, Vartasha McCullough was convicted of homicide by child abuse – specifically, knowingly aiding and abetting, unlawful neglect of a child and inflicting great bodily harm on a child. The judge sentenced her to 20 years in prison.
