Columbus: Raising Awareness for Missing Persons

Approximately 2,300 Americans are reported missing—every day. This includes both children and adults. This does not include Americans who have vanished in other countries, individuals who disappear and are never reported, or the homeless and their children.

Even more heartbreaking is that there are as many as 100,000 active missing persons cases in the U.S. at any given time. . According to the Ohio Attorney General there are currently over 1,000 missing individuals in Ohio alone. So what can you do to help the thousands of families missing a loved one?

The Columbus Chapter decided to help raise awareness about the missing persons in our area by hanging up and passing out flyers around town. Volunteers each took a different route and we were able to cover different areas of the city!
