Since you’re here
I have a small favor to ask. More people are reading Missing Persons of America than ever and asking for their family member to be shared here. I do it because I believe that every single missing person matters, and they all need equal attention. It can’t be done any quicker, and with no boundaries than social media. Last year, I was bombarded daily with more and more cases to share and found myself falling behind as I work 10 hours a day to feature missing people. Also, the network has grown so large that we are in need of an internet host that can serve the growth, so the website does not go down. Many don’t realize that Missing Persons of America independent, investigative posting takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. Frankly, I need funds. If everyone who reads this website, who likes it, can help, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Missing Persons of America and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
