LostNMissing, Inc
April 13, 2013

I simply want to add to my first review, now that I've had some time to truly get started as a volunteer for Lost N Missing...having had not only the pleasure, but the HONOR of being part of this remarkable organization I am blown away by the work they, and especially LnM's founder and president Cynthia Caron does on a daily basis for the countless family members of those who are missing. Reading the attacks brought on by a very select few who have organized a mob style defamation of character against both Mrs. Caron and her organization breaks my heart. It makes me truly question their agenda and what they are hoping to gain by such malicious actions - do they think all of the families who receive the help of Lost N Missing would be better off if they somehow were ever able to dismantle the company? Do they believe that those who are missing would be better off without the aid and awareness that I, countless other volunteers and Cynthia work so hard to achieve for them? Do they believe that the hope we try to instill,\or the support that we do all we can to offer is all for nothing? Because while having worked for LnM, while having even just read the NUMEROUS glowing reviews that family members have taken time out to written during such horrific times in their lives, I know that the work we do is not only needed, important, selfless, and at the highest quality possible - but that without Lost N Missing this country would be at a huge disadvantage. After years of building this organization to what it is, and the hope of what it can continue to grow into - how sad and discouraging it much be for the founder who has poured her heart and soul into helping others, to have to fear that accepting one case has potentially had grave consequences for all the other future cases to come. With all of this being said - again I just want to put much emphasis on how proud I am of myself for being a part of this non profit organization, and what a truly honoring and humbling experience it was to have even been asked in the first place! No matter what I pray that Mrs. Caron is able to continue her work, and that those who are obsessed with tearing her down find compassion and humanity within themselves to think before they act - to look at the big picture before they are so quick to judge and point fingers at someone elses efforts, and ask themselves where were they, and what did they do to help in the case that's being referred? Because having been there from day 11 of Jennifer Ramsaran's disapearence, until her body was found and who still is in contact with friends, her children and husband - I saw first hand the endless efforts made by LnM to help aid in any efforts to bring Jennifer home, I witnessed the hours upon hours that went into trying to correct lies and fabrications so the correct information was being put out there and rumors were being corrected. I saw who it was that was on television pleading for support, and who was not. So where were all of you who are pointing fingers and being critical? Were you raising money for fliers, billboards, etc? Were you doing interviews or speaking endlessly with anyone you could to bring awareness? Were you being attacked privately and professionally for not a single just reason? Were you sitting down next to or speaking with the young children who in the end lost their mom? Because I know Cynthia was! I know that I was! So again trying to be as respectful as possible - I can only ask WHERE WERE YOU? With that all being said I hate every time I get assigned a new task and wish there was no need for the position I have within Lost N Missing, I wish we all lived in a world where Cynthia's services were no where near as in demand as they are....but that's not the case, and the fact is that this organization is needed more and more on a daily basis...so I can only hope and pray that the work we do continues, and that we're able to for future years and years to come be able to still do all we can for those who are missing and to support their families! Again thank you for starting this organization to begin with Mrs. Caron, and I thank you with my entire heart that you saw something in me that filled the high expectations and standards you hold for those who assist in the work you do. To the families I've already worked with and the families I will meet in the future - my heart aches for you, and I will always, as everyone else at Lost N Missing does, give 100% into doing all I can for you and your loved one! Blessings!

I first became introduced to Lost N Missing, and Cynthia Caron about 6 weeks ago and was working closely with Mrs Caron to aid in a case that I had been introduced to by members of a family whom needed assistance. Due to the unbelievable professionalism, dedication and amazing work this organization does and that I was seeing first hand, I inquired about becoming a full time volunteer and was humbled and honored to have been accepted as part of the LNM team, taking on the role of Event Coordinator. I am not only looking forward to beginning work with this organization, again I am honored to be part of such an amazing group of people. If God Forbid I was ever in a situation where i needed assistance from an organization such as this, I could only pray that LNM would be able to come to my aid. Mrs. Caron is one of the single most dedicated volunteers that I have not only come in contact with, but have ever heard of - and recently seeing this organizations 5 star rating being lowered by some hateful people or for all we know just one or two people with many accounts, all in the span of one or two days - all regarding one case - is gut wrenching....because before looking into joining this team, I read countless reviews, looked over countless cases they have worked on, and without Lost N Missing this country would be a much sadder place - with much less help offered to those in need! Again it is with great excitement, dedication and honor that I look forward to diving in and aiding in this cause.
