With disturbing figures like these being reported, Janice Lowery and Gaetane Borders joined forces in 2007 and created an organization that would bring awareness to the problems facing families with missing children who, in some cases, did not meet the required criteria of the Amber Alert System. They found a way to “bridge the gap” for those children and their families by creating the “Rilya Alert.”
“We do not take the place of the Amber Alert System. We simply pick up where they leave off or never engage due to program criteria.”
Volunteers across the internet can come together to gather information, interact and keep abreast of current cases at the Peas In Their Pods network on the Ning platform. There you can join in discussions, offer help and find many who join together with one common goal, to help find the missing children.
Each week Janice and Gaetane host a radio show on BlogTalk Radio to further discuss the issues of missing children as well as other topics and parenting tips.
Children are the most amazing gifts that any parent could ever ask for. Their smiles, kindness, and naiveté make them adorable and precious. However, these qualities also make them a target for those that prey on them.
