    The FBI Child ID App

    You’re shopping at the mall with your children when one of them suddenly disappears. A quick search of the nearby area is unsuccessful. What do you do?
    Now there’s a free new tool from the FBI that can help. Our just launched Child ID app—the first mobile application created by the FBI—provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and vital information about your children so that it’s literally right at hand if you need it. You can show the pictures and provide physical identifiers such as height and weight to security or police officers on the spot. Using a special tab on the app, you can also quickly and easily e-mail the information to authorities with a few clicks.
    The app also includes tips on keeping children safe as well as specific guidance on what to do in those first few crucial hours after a child goes missing.

    Coping with Crime Victimization

    Anyone can become a victim of a crime. If it happens to you or someone you love, here are some important points to remember:

    Being a victim of a crime can be a very difficult and stressful experience. While most people are naturally resilient and over time will find ways to cope and adjust, there can be a wide range of after effects to a trauma. One person may experience many of the effects, a few, or none at all. Not everyone has the same reaction. In some people the reaction may be delayed days, weeks, or even months. Some victims may think they are “going crazy,” when they are having a normal reaction to an abnormal event.

    Getting back to normal can be a difficult process after a personal experience of this kind, especially for victims of violent crime and families of murder victims. Learning to understand and feel more at ease with the intense feelings can help victims better cope with what happened.

    Victims may need to seek help from friends, family, a member of the clergy, a counselor, or a victim assistance professional.

    Project Jason - Assistance for Families of the Missing

    Project Jason Mission Statement
    Our mission as a non profit organization is to create and increase public awareness of missing people through a variety of outreach and educational activities. Project Jason seeks to bring hope and assistance to families of the missing by providing resources and support.
    About Project Jason
    Before June 13th, 2001, we were just an ordinary family living a peaceful, happy existence. My husband, Jim, and I worked outside the home, spent time with our two wonderful sons, attended Mass every Sunday, and enjoyed the company of family and friends. On that fateful Wednesday, our lives changed forever. Our family unit was brutally ripped apart when our oldest son, Jason, then age 19, disappeared without a trace from our driveway.

    CUE Center for Missing Persons

    About CUE Center for Missing Persons

    In 1994, Mrs. Caison founded the non-profit CUE Center for Missing Persons, which is focused on finding the missing, advocating for their causes, and supporting their families.

    Offering a wide range of free services, CUE has since helped more than 9,000 families in what is often the most confusing and desperate times of their lives. In addition to providing services for the missing and their families, CUE offers college internships and youth mentoring programs.

    CUE is entirely donation funded and staffed by volunteers, including Mrs. Caison, who takes no salary from the organization.

    What was simply a dream, name and purpose, is now a nationally-recognized center that answers hundreds of calls for help each year.

    The CUE Center hopes to make a difference for everyone concerned with missing persons. Our belief is that we have.
