Website Keeps Up Hope For Families Of Missing

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The sister of California musician Jannel Rap went missing Oct. 17, 2000, after an open mic performance in Nebraska. Her case remains unsolved.

Rap resolved not to let people like her sister be forgotten. She started and the Squeaky Wheel Tour for musicians to write and perform songs about local missing people and pass out fliers to attendees in hopes that at least one would be found.

Chester resident Carey Colvin has managed the website since 2006, getting to know hundreds of cases from all 50 states and 10 countries. The website’s list is not comprehensive, but it pulls from other nationally recognized missing person sites and police reports.

The three women in Ohio who gained national attention when they were rescued a decade after their disappearance are a reminder that communities should not forget or give up hope for those missing, Colvin said.
