LostNMissing, Inc
March 19, 2013

I am Eugene Losik’s mother. My son went missing from a hotel area in Boston, where he was staying overnight. Eugene was missing from February of 2010 until November of 2010.

While I HATE to be a mother of a missing young man, I feel so grateful that we got to work with LostNMissing and personally – with Cynthia Caron. We would not know what to do and where to start without her. Without her – I would just sit there next to that hotel and cry for 9 months.

Instead – we worked! We worked together with LostNMissing to look for Gene! In few short days Cynthia arranged for the live scent dog to work on the area where Gene went missing. We had few very well organized fliers distribution events, in the areas where the fliers would not be removed the moment they went out. Cynthia Caron did something absolutely impossible to do without her – she had myself and my husband live on Jane Velez-Mitchell show. That interview helped us to keep the media attention on the case when we needed it most. Cynthia Caron personally walked into some office buildings along the very busy highway near Boston and told them our son’s story, and next thing we knew – a huge banner with Eugene’s picture, and all the information was on display for everyone to see it.

I also wanted to mention that Cynthia is our neighbor, she lives with her family next town from us. We got to know her personally, and her husband, and her two beautiful sons. They live a very humble life in a beautiful modest suburban house with their boys, two dogs and a cat. Cynthia can enjoy her gorgeous backyard and sit next to her husband in front of the fire he puts out every day. Instead she keeps herself very busy helping people in need, in the darkest times of their lives, because she wants to help and knows how! She is an amazing person; generous, smart and very resourceful. Did you know that she holds annual flea markets events where her husband would donate his own personal items to raise money for LostNMissing? Did you know that Cynthia has an account on Ebay where she sells HER OWN items, things she actually needs, and all the proceeds go to LostNMissing? 100% of the proceeds! Did you know that Cynthia often spends her own money so those endless fliers would be of better quality? Who else do you know would do such a thing and use their own money?

She never ever asked for a penny from us… all she did was from the open heart! Cynthia deeply cares about the cause, and is a blessing to all of us!
