CUE Center Launches Nationwide Missing Persons Awareness Campaign

Community United Effort (CUE) based in Wilmington, NC launches the I AM ONE missing persons awareness campaign on it’s 25th Anniversary to display the thousands of missing persons cases from communities across the nation. I AM ONE serves as a reminder of over 600,000 people who are reported absent from their families. Created in 2015 as a bulk mailing campaign, I AM ONE is now reaching out over social media channels as well. The bulk mailing program continues to exist and is used when a specific area, or missing person case, is in need of targeting by the media and local community leaders. It’s especially valuable to families who may have limited or no access to the internet. On a national level, CUE Founder Monica Caison says, “My hope is that national media will feature different, sometimes unknown, cases and dig deeper into the human side of victims.

NEW ORLEANS, LA – Thirty seven years ago – with several police officers crowding her – Grace Caporino briefly touched and read a number of pages in a 3-inch-high stack of reports about her missing husband. After a few minutes, they forced her to leave. Today, the New Orleans Police Department still doesn’t want to know or hear anything about the Gabe Caporino case – or the reports. That’s why I filed a lawsuit Thursday, Oct. 6, 2011 in the Parish of New Orleans. My attorney, Brett Prendergast, also filed a related motion to obtain all investigative files on behalf of Gabe Caporino’s family. …

MISSING BILLY SMOLINSKI AND “BILLY’S LAW”  In August 2004, Billy Smolinski, a 31 year old resident of Waterbury, CT went missing. His family had difficulty in getting the attention of the Waterbury Police to investigate Billy’s mysterious disappearance. Waterbury Police told the family they had to wait 3 days to file a missing person report. By all indications, Billy was murdered and his body buried. Billy’s family agonized over the delayed police response and began lobbying to change police procedures associated with missing person cases. Recently, the State of Connecticut passed Missing Person Legislation that will remedy the Smolinski family’s experience and alter police procedures and training regarding missing persons. Billy’s Law goes into effect this fall. Billy’s mother, Janice Smolinski, joins the Crime Wire Team to share her son’s story and talk about her legislative efforts.
