CUE Center for Missing Persons celebrates 15 years of service
Wilmington, N.C. – While it’s the CUE Center’s birthday, the all-volunteer missing person’s organization is giving a gift at a celebration this Saturday to mark the group’s 15th year of service working on the behalf of missing persons cases nationwide.
Monica Caison became a tireless advocate for the missing after being exposed to the families of missing persons at least three times before she was 25 years old. In 1994, she singlehandedly started the non-profit Community United Effort (CUE) Center for Missing Persons from a tiny back yard shed and a mere $76.00 dollars in Wilmington, North Carolina.
Now, the non-profit group, which is entirely funded by donations, has hundred’s of volunteers aiding the centers mission and receives calls for help from across the nation. CUE Center is proud of their all-volunteer network made up of more than 8,000 people and professional search groups — all of whom share the same goals: to find the missing, to advocate for their causes, and to support their families through what is often the most confusing and desperate times of their lives.
With direct experience working on the more than 8,700 cases that have passed through CUE organization, Mrs. Caison has become a nationally recognized authority on missing persons and dedicated advocate for the people they leave behind. She has been featured in Reader’s Digest, People Magazine, and Larry King Live and has received national awards-in recognition for her work, to include cold cases of the missing.
