WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Volunteers with the North Carolina-based CUE Center for Missing Persons will travel across the U.S. to raise awareness for missing children and adults, according to a news release.
Volunteers will attend numerous pre-planned rally stops hosted by various officials and missing person families and friends.
According to the news release, CUE will also distribute press kits, booklets, T-shirts, and valuable information concerning missing persons and unsolved homicide cases that have gone cold throughout the path of the tour.
"Each year as we begin in preparation of the tour, we are reminded of the overwhelming amount of unsolved cases from across the country; we have to do more," said CUE Founder, Monica Caison. "The cases we feature are a small number compared to the NCIC Statistics listing between 700,000 to 850,000 cases reported annually on a national level, but I'm confident we will make a difference in those we represent," said Casion.
The volunteers will travel through NC, SC, GA, FL, LA, AL, MS, and VA.
CUE will leave from NC Thursday and will return on October 12.
