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 circumstancesO 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, Monica, and CUE Center staff for getting this tour on the road, and for making it a success. The emotions of the events in each state, for each missing person, isn’t easy to capture in photos, but I think you did. I will support your efforts in anyway I can.

    Perhaps by this time next year, I’ll be able to be a better “bridge: for you in Maryland.

    Thanks again,

  2. Donald Ross says:

    Would love to see you all in MO again. But there are a lot of states and we don’t want to be greedy. Thanks for the time you spent with and the energy you brought to us.

    I hope you can include Joshua Guimond on your next tour. He has been missing for nine years from the campus of St. John’s University, and no one seems to care. think the university and sheriff’s dept. just want the case to fade away in the public’s mind, and unfortunately it looks like they are getting their wish. This is so sad and unfair to Joshua and his family.

    Thank you for everything you do. I know you don’t do it to gain credit or accolades, but the fact is, you are heroes for what you do. Thank you!!!

  4. Your STOP in VIDOR was such a major BLESSING.
    Just was’nt enough time so we could at least have a conversation.
    GOD BLESS you and all your precious CREW.Luvnhugs dede & dale

    Thanks for keeping these missing persons in the spotlight. Someone knows where they are. I think of someone like Jaycee Dugard. Here she was right under our noses, but we had forgotten about her case. It is groups like yours that will keep their names and faces alive.

    I feel so helpless when people go missing. I want to help, but am never sure what to do except pray, pray and pray often for them. I feel I am keeping their memory alive in my heart, but I also hope wherever they are they feel the prayers and know someone is thinking of them.

    I feel for everyone, but in particular children who are so helpless and would have no resources to protect themselves or as they grow older know what to do. Children tend to believe what they are told.

    Thanks again for your efforts and if you ever come to Canada I would love to be involved. We have many missing children and people here as well.

    I watch a show called missing on ID channel and as a mom it tugs at my heart to see the pain in the parents and families hearts when a missing child is never found. I would be like a crazy nut until my kid was found. I can’t help to think they have to be somewhere they just do not vanish into thin air. Today I was looking at some trailers of some missing peope I had seen on TV so I looked them up on the computer to see if any new developments have surfaced. I pray in my heart every missing person is found. It brings me to a story on Lifetime about a mom whose son was kidnapped by his dad and eventually she found him in Mexico. She thought she lost him when she was led to a cemetary and the grave marker bared her son’s name. It was a happy ending and I forget if it was based on a true story but it was called Not my Son I think with Lisa Hartman Black.

    I also think of the 3 women in Cleveland who recently turned up alive after 10 yrs alive and well (overall). They were right under everyone’s noses. It was by the luck of the draw the door was unlocked and the child told her mom that her dad went away for awhile did Ms. Berry decide to make a break for it and she saved them all. Horrible beginning and happy ending. Etan Patz…..still missing but I think he may have been declared dead at this point but his parents will not move and leave a light on all the time in hopes he will come home. Then there were these 2 little boys who disappeared within a short time of each other, from the same park after playing with the same 2 kids and seen with the same man. Hmmmmm how can they have cleared him. Something in my mothers gut tells me he solf them or something and used the kids as bait and threatened them if they told. There was a missing woman Lisa, who disappeared one day never to be seen again and her lover was acting weird after her disappearance but it could not be proven.

    I think through the use of the internet and word of mouth some of these mussing people can be found. I love the idea of the travelling rally. It helps spread the word and also helps to bond other families together. Maybe it wont be the way we hope with joyous reunions but at least there can be closure. I do NOT have a missing child but my career by choice is working with children. I believe they all have potential. I also like people in general and think no one deserves to be taken or hurt in anyway by others for their own gratification or to cover up something they have done bad in their lives.

    Is there anything I can do from my home to help your organization help find people and bring them home? Let me know…..God Bless you all for what you do. May you find some of the missing people that either are being held against their will or worse.

    Hey Monica doug bechtold and our family were wondering if you guys were stopping in louisana somewhere our family would love to meet you and everyone and talk more in person about our loved one dean bechtold let us know thank you and god bless

  13. Judi Jordan says:

    I can not say enough about Monica and the CUE crew. This group of compassionate people who work harder than I ever imagined, stays on top of every detail, and at the same time, has time for the family, letting them know they are being heard, and helps in guiding them through what many have already endured first hand. My family would be lost without you Monica Caison and the rest of the crew….. Thank you George for always being there.. And Cindy and everyone for putting up with us… My family and I thank you all from the bottom of our hearts. And thank you for adding Zachary Malinowski to your tour this year. I thank God for you all every day.
