NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - As 2012 draws to a close, dozens of missing persons cases are not. 

Monica Caison with the CUE Center for Missing Persons tells us, everyday someone from our region goes missing. 

Caison hopes, the new year will bring new clues to help solve some of the unsolved cases.

It's been more than a year since Al'Quon Flowers was last seen on Red Cross Street in Wilmington.

The Cue Center for missing persons has conducted half a dozen searches for the teenager and held vigils to keep his case fresh on people's minds. But so far they've come up empty. 

"We pretty much know whatever happened to him, happened to him between Brunswick county and Wilmington. It's not just information coming forward to help jump start the investigation. Every missing person, the information lies in that community. somebody knows something." Said Caison.

Gaston Cullam, a photographer who reconstructed old homes, disappeared more than two years ago.. Caison tell us, he was last seen riding a mountain bike near UNCW. 

"If he's gone off and took his life, you'd think he would have been found by now. He's a person we think could have possible walked out on life. We've even followed some trails in California where he could have went to ride the big wave or do some photography or what not." Added Caison.

A case that's made recent headlines is Alma Lawson. 

The 83-year old disappeared last month, she was last seen in the Love Grove community in Wilmington.

"There's a lot of space out there. Tuck and groves here or there, under the bridge there's a lot of water around there as well." Said Caison.

Those are just a few of people who are missing, that Caison and her volunteers say they won't stop until they find. 

Caison believes people should occasionally visit the CUE Center's website or any website dedicated to finding missing people. She says, someone you know or have seen could be on there.
