National Tour to Honor Missing McCleary Girl Lindsey Baum

This year’s On the Road to Remember Tour will begin in Los Angeles, CA on September 20th, and end on September 26, 2012, when the tour crew fly’s back to North Carolina leaving out of Los Angeles. The route planned will have traveled over 2,600 road miles upon completion focusing on California, Oregon and Washington State in six days. Hundreds of volunteers, families of the missing, law enforcement agencies, volunteer groups and officials will take part in various legs of the tour, which will include about a dozen preplanned rally stops. The tour is slated to promote sixty unsolved missing persons, four unidentified persons and three unsolved homicide cases.“Each year as we begin in preparation for the tour, we are reminded of the overwhelming numbers of unsolved cases from across the country, silently you see all of the request that flood in, obviously we can only take a certain amount each year,” Mrs. Caison said. “The cases we feature are a small number compared to the NCIC Statistics between 700,000 to 800,000 cases reported annually on a national level, but I’m confident we will make a difference in those we represent”, CUE’s Founder added.

National Tour Purpose and Inspiration
The annual tour was created to generate new interest in cold cases of missing
people across our nation. The inspiration came in 2004 from the case of a North Carolina
college student Leah Roberts, who had gone on a cross-country trip of self-exploration.
Her wrecked and abandoned vehicle was found, but Leah remains’ missing. Leah’s case
went cold and interest faded until CUE volunteers set out on a grueling 14-day trip to
retrace her route and inform the media of her disappearance and all of those who were
missing in the path of the route. In Leah’s case the tour’s mission was to gain her
national attention in which was accomplished when it landed a feature story in People
Magazine. In the years to follow, it only seemed right to keep hope alive after families
from across the country voiced the need for more help and supported the tour idea.
National Tour Objective
The national road tour, called “On the Road to Remember,” is an awareness campaign that
primarily focuses on missing person cases that have gone cold or have not received
appropriate media coverage on the local level – much less the national level. The tour,
which travels through many states annually, provides that attention.
In all cases of missing people, it is vital to inform the public of the missing person’s
circumstances quickly and to disseminate that information to the media and the
community. In most cases where details are released immediately to the public through
an organized campaign, the public brings forth information that aids in the investigation
and or the location of the victim. The media plays a significant role in getting the word
out on the behalf of the missing person and should be recognized as a vital resource to
any investigation.
Interest in many of the cases we have featured in previous tours has been renewed. The
media has learned about local cases they were unaware of; case investigations have been
sparked, and searches conducted. Information has resulted in new leads in some cases,
and has even helped identify an unknown decedent; returned children of a parental
abduction and in 2008 solved a cold case of twenty eight years. In each tour year, some
of the missing cases featured have been found from various efforts prompted by the
tour’s visit, being the main reason for its existence today.
Every missing person is somebody’s child.

It is the belief of the CUE Center for Missing Persons that all investigators, the public,
volunteers and the media should work in collaboration on cases involving missing
children and adults; until this happens, their will continue to be cases of the missing
labeled “cold”, “inactive” or unsolved.
