WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The CUE Center for Missing Persons celebrated their 15th anniversary Saturday.

The nonprofit organization is dedicated to searching for missing people and supporting their families.

The center is completely funded by donations and includes a nationwide network of more than 8,000 volunteers.

"We go into the deepest swamp, into places where most people won't, and we find missing persons, sometimes dead, sometimes alive," said CUE Center board member Adam Albright.  "The reason why we are important is because we do things that other people want."

During the anniversary celebration, children could get free fingerprints and CUE Center members sold raffle tickets for the chance to win a laptop.
