On Saturday, October 29 at 10am family members of the missing, along with members of the community, law enforcement, media and speakers will gather at Chapin Park at 1400 North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach. South Carolina has approximately 125 known open missing persons cases, some recent and many that have gone cold. ImaginePublicity hopes to add to the awareness of each of them by hosting a stop along the CUE Center for Missing Persons’ Road to Remember Tour in Myrtle Beach.
Each year CUE Center for Missing Persons hits the road across several states in order to bring awareness to communities of the magnitude of a silent epidemic, missing persons. This year’s tour will cover the following states: NC, TN, SC, TX, MS, AL, FL, LA . Every year, Monica Caison and representatives from CUE travel a different route in order to bring needed attention in the media and each community.
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 Center 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.
All families with missing loved ones in South Carolina are invited to participate. Please bring pictures, signs, banners, or whatever you like, to honor your missing loved one and bring more attention to your loved one’s case.
If you are planning to attend, please email contact@imaginepublicity to give us an idea of who will be in attendance. Your missing loved one will be honored regardless of attendance.
