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.”

Thank you, Marie Martin President & Founder, Victims & Survivors Against Violent Crimes 903-392-8470

    My brother has been missing for over 2 years now in Fort Worth Texas. I would like to have his case highlighted when you come to TExas.

  3. Faith says:

    What information can you give me on your stop in Jackson, MS?

  4. My daughter, Beverly Meadows, has been missing since December 26, 2008.
    Can you please highlight her case on your Road Tour? She is missing from
    Marshall, Texas, and there has been no trace of her. I can attend the Bossier City Civic Center meeting when you come to Louisiana. Any information that can be put out there for the public would be such a great help. My husband and I feel all alone in our search for my daughter. Thank you for everything you
    do to help others.

  6. monica says:

    We have submitted your case to both stops

  7. Monica,

    I really don’t how to begin to tell you how grateful I am that my missing daughter, Beverly Meadows, was highlighted on the Bossier-Civic Center Road Rally and the Henderson Texas Road Rally. Thanks to Carolyn Johnson and Kimberly Vaughn and all of the people who assisted them in preparing for
    their stops.

    Monica, the hard work and time that you and everyone in your group spent organizing the tours is greatly appreciated. I know just being able to
    attend the Road Rally and having an opportunity to talk to others who are
    going through the agony of missing a loved one gave me hope and strength
    to carry on in my search for my daughter.

    Thank you Monica Caison and the CUE Center for Missing Persons Organization.

    Beverly Meadows’ Mother
