Monica Caison and all at CUE are not just a missing persons non-profit, they are our family. CUE has been and continues to be right by our side since the disappearance of my sister in law, Noemi González in 2014. They organized search and rescue teams to search for Noemi, included her in their Road to Remember Tour by stopping by her neighborhood and helping local police distribute information on Noemi’s disappearance, spotlighted Noemi’s disappearance and life in their annual conference, shared our pain and provided comfort during prayer vigils, etc. and have been there for our family with unconditional love and support. When a loved one goes missing, your life is turned upside down and, thankfully, most people do not understand the heartache. CUE gets it. When you speak to CUE and other families that are going through the same heartache, there is an instant bond and comfort in knowing that they truly understands your pain and are just as committed as you are to find your loved one. Monica and CUE are not just another non-profit, they are our family and we are blessed to have their support. God bless them all and their dedication to helping find the missing and support the families.

Monica and the entire organization are a group of dedicated people that work very hard to help the families of murdered and missing people.They come from all walks of life to support families who find themselves in the agonizing situation of a missing loved one. They never stop supporting, searching in an organized and professional manner. I became involved after an accident left me unable to work. Spent over two years looking for an organization to become involved with. This is the best out there! Everyone does what they can,nobody is paid and no families are charged a dime.
Don't think you have nothing to offer,everyone does! Support this nonprofit in anyway you can!

CUE is a wonderful group of self less people who never give up in their search for the missing. Not only that but they also are there well after the initial event and continue to offer support to the families of the missing. Even if it takes YEARS. They do all of this at their own expense. Traveling wherever they are needed. A great group of people!

I have never been part of a organization that is as passionate about their mission as CUE. I believe Monica would take her dogs into hell if there was a very little chance she would find one missing person.
I have been part of many organizations associated with all kinds of helping others, this is the one I am most proud of.

I am a 65 yr. old clairvoyant and I found out about CUE a few years ago. I have turned in information when I get it to Monica Caison and her staff. I find them to be serious and professional. I am a volunteer, but I'm too far away and use a cane, so I can't go on the large search efforts in the fields.

Monica with the CUE center was out there searching for my daughter before the police took us serious enough to start looking. She was with us to the end, and not only gave us very good advice but checked on us daily and filled some needs also. She and the CUE center will forever have a place in our hearts and home.

I started volunteering with Community United Effort (CUE) after attending their Annual National Conference. I was hooked immediately. The compassion for the families of the missing is amazing. They advocate for the families with Law Enforcement and guide them through the process. The knowledge and training of each volunteer is amazing and if someone doesn't have an answer, they will go the extra mile to find out what it is. Every person in our organization is a volunteer, all the way up to our founder, Monica Caison. Even when a case has resolution, Monica remains in contact with the family. Many of our volunteers are family members of the missing, not many nonprofits can claim that. I would not volunteer at any other nonprofit.

My son went missing 2007 at the age of 40. Police gave me very little assistance due to his age and his life style. When I contacted CUE Monica was very helpful. Unfortunately my son's remains were not found for 4 years. When I had no one to turn to Monica was just a phone call away. I will always admire what she does for the families of a missing person. Thank you for your services.

April 22, 1998, my daughter went missing in Wilmington, NC
When I arrived from Ohio on the 23rd of April, Monica met me and already had posters made up and her story out there. Thru the 7 months it took us to find her, Monica was at my side, directing all the things families, with Missing Persons know nothing about. We knew by June what had happened. Peggy Carr had been car- jacked, at 3:00 in the afternoon and made to drive 42 miles out of Wilmington and murdered and left. They needed her car for a robbery, that never happened, nor did they use her car. She was part of a crime spree of 3 woman, Peggy included. The story made such news, Peggy became CUE’s landmark case. Monica is unfounded and continues her undaunted journeys to help all families.

My father, Mel Nadel, went missing in September 2009. He is still currently missing, and his case is cold. I happened to run into Crystal Fields in a parking lot back in 2020. I knew that this had to have happened for a reason. I asked her about the mission and the services that CUE provides. The entire team came out just a few months later and did a comprehensive search for my father. I cannot think Crystal and her team enough. They are all incredibly kind, and it means so much to me that they would put effort into finding my father who has been missing for so long.

Several years ago, a former family member and her 2 children were taken against their will from their home in KY by an acquaintance and taken to North Carolina. We made a few calls to Law Enforcement in the area we knew they were in and were placed in contact with Monica Caison of Community United Effort (CUE) Center for Missing Persons. Thru the hard work of Monica and her volunteers our family was located safe and returned home within a week! Without their hemp we aren't sure what could have happened

My dear friend, Leah Roberts, has been missing 21 years, 6 months, and 22 days. When she disappeared that March, we had no idea what to do. We were in North Carolina and felt like we were a world away from Washington State. It was fate that connected all of us who love Leah to Monica Caison, but she has been with us every step of the way since we met.

Leah disappeared while "on the road" to Bellingham. One of the beautiful ways that CUE has raised awareness about her case has been with the annual "On the Road to Remember Tour." Initially, the tour followed her path from Durham to Bellingham, stopping at places she visited and creating visibility for her case nationwide. Today, the tour highlights missing persons all over the country.

You have to understand that the volunteers at the CUE Center know that every missing person is somebody's child. The volunteers are diligent and faithful. They never give up - Leah has been missing nearly half of my life now, and the CUE Center still walks with me. And when the press stops or refuses to draw attention to a missing person's story - the CUE Center is there. CUE Center is there when law enforcement needs support or when searches need to happen with boots on the ground. And when the grief is too overwhelming, they will weep with you and hold you. The CUE Center never forgets.

If you want to support an OUTSTANDING nonprofit - choose this one.

I have been involved with The Community United Effort (CUE) for Missing Persons since May 2009 when I was a member of a Mounted SAR unit in my area. I made the decision to volunteer strictly for CUE in November of that same year. Monica Caison took the time to take me under her wing immediately and from there her passion was infectious. My husband and I became Board Members in 2010 and have not looked back. CUE holds its National Missing Persons Conference in March of every year and having just come away from this 4 day event, you are always changed for the better. Monica puts together a fantastic program that some how makes you more motivated than you were the year past.

The CUE Center for Missing Persons is the best organization from our Mission Statement to all of the individuals that make it a life experience for so many. Thank you Monica and CUE for showing me that putting others before ourselves is the best reward we can be given.

There is no damage so severe to a family that compares to losing a loved one mysteriously, faced with never knowing their final outcome. This injury lasts a lifetime. We volunteer members of CUE feel this pain and come with purpose. We put our boots on the ground, our ATVs, and horses and dogs in the fields and woods and rivers with energy and hope. We are a grand group that I am fortunate to be part of.

This non profit organization is one of the best known to those who have a Missing person in there family. I myself have a daughter Elsha Marie Rivera who has been missing since 2004 from Fort Worth Texas.
What seems like a lifetime ago for many is part of my daily life for ever until she is found, as the years go by and her case ages I also age and my life doesn't become any easy. The biggest nightmare of any parent who has a loved one Missing is knowing the years are going by and that one day you may pass away without finding that loved one..at age 61... I know find myself in that category as many others like me...this organization has given many hope and has made tremendous sacrifices in the search of those Missing. Without them many families wouldn't know where to turn. I wish there were more organizations like this one in other areas and that they had the funds to go from State to State with many of there searches. ..we just don't have enough of what is needed out there and it's sad because so many people go Missing in America never to be heard or seen from again...and the majority of them never get media or are ever searched for.

The Cue Center for the Missing is an outstanding awesome organization that is run totally by Volunteers. There are hundreds of people through out the United States that offer their expertise, their years of training to help Cue find Missing people. Volunteers in this field of work spend thousands of dollars over the years to do this kind of Volunteering. To have an organization so organized, focused & driven with passion makes all of us want to help even more. Monica is very passionate about her work and helping those family members that have no direction until they meet her. Nobody receives a pay check while working searches everything from bringing in help from others states to serving lunch is donated.

For the last 12 years I have been honored to volunteer for CUE Center for Missing Persons and give my time and talent to the mission. Not only does the organization search for the missing, but advocates for the families, reaches out to communities, and educates the public about the epidemic of missing persons. CUE is an invaluable tool for law enforcement and consistently compliments their work on missing persons cases by providing expertise, equipment, and personnel.

Operating strictly on donations, the organization efficiently gathers resources to benefit each registered case as needed. Without these resources, many families would be left in the dark with no direction at the worst time in their lives. All volunteers learn that the most important thing is supporting the families as we search for their loved ones in all ways possible.

Monica Caison's leadership has allowed her to assemble a dedicated group of professionals that continues to grow and serve the mission of finding the missing. As the premier missing persons organization in the country, CUE Center for Missing Persons always exceeds expectations.

As a long time State Outreach Coordinator for the CUE Center for Missing Persons, I have seen this organization evolve into a very impriesive non-profit.. Their individual and team skills and unique focus/specialization in fulfilling an urgent need for missing persons, (primarily adults and unsolved homicides) is unmatched when compared to other non-profits. They are small enough to continue to serve individual families- customized to their needs and also impart knowledge and insight that only comes with years of experience! Much credit should be given to Founder Monica Caison , in that she has continued to find ways to serve missing persons families during this unrelenting pandemic. Although there are many challenges and responsibilities, Monica and her staff are not deterred and are performing their vital roles as best they can.

To capture the essence of Monica Caison and the CUE Center for the Missing in a paragraph is difficult indeed. As a homicide survivor and crime victim advocate working with victims for over 30 years, I have never seen a more unique and effective organization! The CUE was introduced to me by colleagues nearly four years ago. Once I attended a Conference I was attracted like a magnet to their mission, sense of caring, compassion, ability to achieve results purely on donations. However, the most impressive aspects are Monica's innate sense to put the needs of families first, with respect and honesty. to devise a customized , strategic plan based upon their individual circumstances. to always instill a sense of hope no what has occurred and her ability to earn the cooperation and respect of law enforcement and other professionals throughout the country. Her tenacity and "turn over every rock" nature has served her well for the past 20 years. She has entrusted her mission to hand picked state coordinators in several states. We try to carry the torch in our individual was . I am proud to be a Coordinator for the State of Connecticut. To serve others in need is an honor.

I have worked with this organization since approximately 2008. The founder, Monica is an unbelievable woman. She is relentless in her quest to help the families of the victims by searching to try and locate the victim or evidence. The equipment that they bring, horses, 4x4’s, drones, boats, ground searchers and beyond is amazing. As a member of Law Enforcement, the organization was one of my finest tools. On several occasions we located remains and we’re able to bring them home to the families. Other times we have located helpful evidence, sometimes they search for days on end with no results. All in all these searchers often leave their full time jobs to donate their time to search. This is am amazing organization that operates strictly off donations. As a Police Officer, I thank God everyday for them coming to help me.

I entered CUE as a police officer. I often joke that I didn't find CUE but CUE found me. During my first search I was standing on the line in the woods of SC and I looked to my left and saw a strong leader in the search field. I asked him what brought him to CUE. He said his son had went missing and CUE was the only thing that kept him together and helped him find his son. He said his son was found victim of a homicide and without CUE he would have never survived the aftermath. He said he had been volunteering for CUE ever since. He said now he dedicates his whole life to helping others find their loved ones. That day I was sold. CUE taught me more than I ever thought it would. I began going on searches and eventually became a state coordinator. Monica Caison is one of the finest leaders I've ever known. Monica Caison leads with passion and a relentlessness spirit. She will be with families from the start to the finish. If there's a way Monica Caison will find it. She has always said if you find a road block go around it.. CUE is not just an organization CUE is a way of life. When you enter CUE you become family. CUE doesn't get paid for anything that they do yet you will receive 100 percent tireless efforts from people who won't quit because they merely love people and want to make a difference in the world of missing persons. CUE answers the call anytime day or night for those that have found themselves in crisis and in the darkest of places to be a ray of light to those that are in need. CUE is hope to those that feel hopeless in their situation having suffered walking through the nightmare of a missing love one. CUE was a game changer for me not only did it teach me all the things I needed to know within my career but it changed me internally for life. I will always be CUE it's in me once you become a part of CUE it will never leave you. Community Unified Effort is made up of the finest people I've ever known. If you are looking for an organization to be a part of look no further CUE is more than just an organization CUE is a game changer.
CUE works closely with Law Enforcement all over the United States and when Law Enforcement see CUE work they quickly gain the respect of Law Enforcement. CUE is professional tactful well planned out and organized. When CUE shows up on the scene everyone knows this organization means business the volunteers take it seriously and no person leaves till the job is done.

As a first-time victim of homicide, I was unaware of the mental, emotional and physical toll that this life shattering event would take on me. I was unaware of the stages of true grief, and the different ways it would manifest. Guilt, depression, anxiety, fear, panic attacks were some of my many aftereffects. I’ve accepted that the pain never truly dissipates, but becomes a void in your heart that you can learn to live with. I am greatly appreciative of organizations like this who provides practical assistance to family of victims. I’ve also found comfort in knowing that evil and suffering will not exist forever because God promises to end it, although He is not the cause of our suffering.

Psalms 37
10 Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more;
You will look at where they were,
And they will not be there.+
11 But the meek will possess the earth,+
And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.

My favorite website for understanding this hope and receiving comfort is JW.org.

May your heart be comforted and peace be found.

Sincerely,

I have been with CUE for almost a year now. CUE is the type of organization that brings together volunteers who are dedicated to the mission of helping families locate their missing loved ones. It is mission driven and the volunteers are the best, working together as one big family to locate missing persons. From my very first search I have been impressed with the the way everyone goes above and beyond to assist these families through the toughest times in their lives. CUE really believes everyone is someone’s child. I am proud to serve as a NC state coordinator and searcher for CUE and look forward to many years working with them to accomplish their mission.

As a volunteer State Outreach Coordinator for the CUE Center for Missing Persons for many years, I am continually impressed with Founder, Monica Caison’s ability to maintain, sustain and never lose sight of the path to thriving once again, in the midst of an unprecedented pandemic!

It takes incredible skill to switch gears, re-prioritize resources, time and effort in order to provide needed services which embody the mission and goals of this organization.
Assisting families of the missing and unsolved homicides is always the number one priority. A 26 year track record with many important, professional services continuing to be offered free of charge is unmatched in the arena of missing persons.

It truly takes a “nationwide village” of dedicated staff to persevere, motivate and foster change in any year. However, this is especially vital in 2020, as families need a lifeline more than ever before!
The beauty of this organization to me, is that specific circumstances around a person going missing is never judged. Help is offered to all who meet the basic criteria. Every missing person is equal.

The “startling but true” data of over 600,000 missing persons annually, speaks to this silent epidemic to which we persistently try to give a much needed voice.

Monica Caison and her dedicated volunteers across the nation are truly inspiring and are very deserving of the honor of the Great Non-Profit for 2020.

The Cue Center for Missing Persons is an amazing non-profit whose lifeblood begins with volunteerism and dedication to the cause in a number of ways. Many of the families associated with a missing persons case and/or unsolved homicide frequently find their sense of purpose and equilibrium with this family oriented group. Personally, I found a surrogate home and means of caring, expression and manner of assisting others that fits with my personality and talents when biological family members often do not, or cannot take an interest in such endeavors.

Since 1994, Monica Caison has sacrificed much with her tireless dedication, to provide resources, reassurance, comfort, a sense of hope, and when possible, resolution or recovery from their painful ordeal. Her passion has fueled the fire to serve thousands of victims both in the U.S .and in foreign counties The Cue Center for Missing Persons has the distinction and credibility of longevity, skilled experience and an impressive track record, without compromising standards and protocols when searching for missing loved ones. As a homicide survivor and State Coordinator It is an honor to serve them in my home state of Connecticut and beyond.

There are not enough words to shower CUE with the accolades they deserve, but I will share that in a families darkest hour they are the light that brings a modicum of hope to an unthinkable/unbearable situation. Nothing can prepare you for the nightmare of a missing loved one and my family knows this first hand. When we were doubled over in pain, in shock from disbelief, gutted from fear and tending to hearts that were shattered, the only thing that brought us sense of direction was the services of CUE. We are forever grateful for their services and 18 years into my brother's disappearance they are still by our side. Their professionalism, expert knowledge of all aspects of the missing world, and their compassion for families form an organization that exemplifies nonprofit excellence. Their dedication to the Missing is beyond measure.

When I was 12 or 13 years old, a family friend's son went missing. CUE worked ceaselessly on the case, advocating for the family until his body was recovered, and providing support to the family and all involved. Support in a time of suffering is crucial and Monica and her team were angels.

Fast forward to now, I'm proud to be on the board of directors to give back to CUE. It means the world to me to be a part of this team that works tirelessly to provide support and resources to communities nationwide!

Cue team!!!! In the situation of having a someone you know or having a loved one go missing. Best people to meet. They welcome you with open arms and don't judge the situation. They make you feel like family. My brother Randy Davis went missing in 2016. He was a known runner and got himself addicted to substances. We reached out to the cue team in hope of them helping find him. But they did so much more than that they went above and beyond. In 2017, there was a body recovery maybe 1/2 a mile from where he went missing. Still to this day we will forever be grateful for such an amazing kindhearted team that they have came up with. #cuestrong

When I retired, I began volunteering with CUE. I am so honored to be a part of such a worthwhile, motivated, caring organization.

I would describe CUE as a “fine oiled machine” because of their efficiency, procedures and protocol. However, CUE is not a machine at all. It is a group of passionate volunteers who truly care about missing people and their loved ones.
I am so impressed and inspired by the number of volunteers who volunteer their time, skills and resources to search for people they have never met. Volunteers travel hundreds of miles, pulling ATV’s, transporting service dogs, horses and boats to search in areas where others will not go.
CUE volunteers are good people, with a common goal,finding the missing, advocating for their causes, and supporting their families. CUE volunteers are compassionate, forward thinking people, who respect every missing person and their family and desperately want to bring them home. CUE volunteers are there to support and comfort families during there difficult times, not only during a search.
Monica Caison is the founder of CUE. She is an active participant in everything CUE does. She doesn’t sit behind the desk and provide assignments, rather, she, too is boots on the ground...searching for every missing person just like that person were her relative. She has set a positive, caring tone for the organization itself. as well as the volunteers.
Every missing person is somebody’s child.

My sister Pauline Del Mundo has been missing since September 15, 2019. She was last seen at the intersection of 20th Ave. South and Airfield South of DFW Airport in Dallas, Tx. Since no one in the family lives in Texas, we asked CUE to help us find her. CUE volunteers heard our cry, listened to our stories, and gave us hope. Truly compassionate, generous, and amazing, they empowered us when we have nobody to turn to. Last July 25 & 26, 2020, Crystal and her team endured the hardship, searched our sister Paula under the scorching heat of the sun in Texas in their desire to find her. Inspired by their selfless dedication, some drove as far as Tennessee, Georgia, etc., how could we not be touched?
It has been more than 300 days of uncertainty, our tragic plight to find her is still a mystery, and will still be actively acted upon by CUE.
The Community United Effort ( CUE) is not just another nonprofit organization. Monica Caison, it’s founder , Crystal and the rest of the volunteers are truly remarkable people who filled our hearts with love and hope.

My Daughter Crystal Morrison on August 23, 2012 went missing walking home from work . After exhausting all of the local & state resources, a person who I didn't know called me and suggested very strongly to call in CUE for help . I called Monica the same day and discussed my daughters case . She immediately went into action, calling all of the local Police & sheriffs departments . She had a tuff road to convince the different departments that she wasn't trying to take over ,but to bring here expertise and teams to assist in locating my daughter . She succeeded in her goal . Before I knew what was happing she had a group of search teams working with the different departments trying to find my little girl. She and crew never give up, here teams consist of a lot of professional law personal who give there time and talent freely to the cause of searching & finding missing people . Six years later Monica & her staff of volunteers has not given up and recently did another search with the police department , unfortunately with no results . I along with Monica will never give up on finding Crystal. I thank God everyday that there are great organizations out there like CUE who do this for no reason other than to HELP!

My cousin, Zachary Malinowski, went missing in August of 2013. In a very difficult time in our lives, we met Monica and the Cue team and they quickly changed my life and my heart forever. We were able to meet so many families that understood the pain and confusion we were facing while offering support and guidance. They have provided countless resources to assist our family in the recovery of Zack so that we can one day have the closure we hope for. Being entirely volunteer driven, CUE provides a range of services that are unparalleled to anything I have ever witnessed before both professionally and in a fellowship capacity to the family of the missing. They were truly angels sent to us in the worst tragedy my family will ever face.

My son Damien Mark Sharp has been missing for 17 from warren PA. I met Monica and others on the road tour a few girls in our area were missing. For 6 years I battled Damien’s disappearances by my self for 6 years battling the Warren police department and anyone else that got in my way. Monica was the first person that said I can help you and she has I have grown and became a State outreach coordinator for the last 10 years. If it wasn’t for the CUE I don’t know where I would be. Nothing is worse then a missing persons you think of them every day every hour every minute it consumes your life #CUE STRONG#

My Son, Roger Scott Dunn was murdered in Texas in1991, Monica Caison/Cue gave continued support for years.
Scotts case took 6 years before going to trial of murderess Leisha Hamilton. She was convicted for murder, but only received 20 years. Yet she refused to reveal the location of Scott's body. Twenty one(21) years later his body was found near the crime scene in Lubbock, Texas.
During all those years, we were supported and by Monica and the Cue. Support we will always be grateful for. Scott was proclaimed Victim of the Year in 2012 at the Cue annual conference.
Thank you Monica Caison and the CUE/!! James and Barbara Dunn, Hendersonville, NC

I started with CUE back in 2009 when a young girl from my hometown in NY went missing in Myrtle Beach SC. I had no idea what I was doing but on my 1st search I was guided by a great group of Volunteers. Now 10 years later I'm still doing Search & Rescue with CUE and I have helped to bring families resolution in their missing loved ones case. I had no clue then that 10 years later that I would still be with CUE as not only a Volunteer but a State Director in SC. CUE will forever be my home away from home because we are not just volunteers but we are CUEFAMILY and I will search for the missing until my last breath. Every missing person is someone's child and every missing person needs resoultion. Never giving up on the Missing!!!

When my nephew went missing we had no idea where to turn. We felt like no one he was gone. The detective wasn't getting anywhere with the last people he was seen with. That's when someone referred us to CUE. Monica immediately came up and talked to our family and before we knew it we had 100's of volunteers from all over the US helping look for him. They had K9, horse teams, ground teams, and ATV teams. Not to mention the boats and other equipment. They never gave up until they brought him home. Even after his remains was found it didn't end there. Monica and several others went to court with us and got us in touch with victims advocates. That's been 12 years ago and to this day my family volunteers as well. We want to help families like ours that don't know where to turn. Monica and her team never ever give up. We are all strictly volunteer so any donations help with our travel all over the US. It provides lodging and food for all the volunteers. As well as doing road tours to get all the missing names and faces and their stories out there to the public and media. I could talk all day about this organization.

“I offer myself to those who have nowhere else to turn. These desperate people who ask for my help have unique situations. Yet, however unique they are bound together by the commonality of being the loved one of a missing person”. Monica Caison and her volunteers do this on a daily basis, any hour of the day or night. I started volunteering over 5 years ago and see first hand Monica’s dedication on a daily basis. CUE plays so many roles once a family calls and asks for our help...advocate, liaison between the families and law enforcement, searcher, and providing comfort to a family member that has no where else to turn.

I have been volunteering with Community United Effort for almost two years and amazed at the dedication of this organization! They are there for the families during one of the worst times of their lives...it doesn't end there either, they continue to be a support system to help in anyway needed. They are also dedicated in the areas of awareness and fundraising to be able to assist the next family...Monica Caison is an amazing woman and you can count on her day and night....whenever that phone rings, no matter what time, Monica will be the one answering.

If you are a family who has someone missing STAY CLEAR!!! My sister was missing and they made me sign an affidavit saying they would only use there organization. After months of no action, I finally got another organization to do a search. The director of this organization and her "volunteers" yelled at me for using another organization. All I wanted was my sister found.

It is unbelievable that this is how they treat those that state they are working to serve.

No one would have yelled at you, the form is an called an advocacy form which allows us to speak with law enforcement or others involved in the case of a missing person, noting more. You have provided no name for this case or details. Unsure of who you contacted but it was not us. Your online name doesn't come up either. Thank you.

I had the pleasure of volunteering for this organization while living in NC. Monica is dedicated, talented and passionate about all things related to helping families find their loved ones. She has coordinated many other individuals equally as committed and all in all the work they do is amazing and in the end many families have found some peace.

My son, a DiveMaster, Rescue Diver, Humanitarian was murders while traveling in Central America in 2016. We did find him and bring him home to me.
CUE offered kindness and invaluable support during this horrible, tragic ordeal.
They are most deserving of national recognition and support.

I contacted this organization when my beautiful son was missing in Central America. This is a wonderful organization. Although they were unable to help me directly, they have offered their unending support and vast knowkedge. We found my son, not alive as we had prayed, but we were able to bring him home.

This organization works tirelessly to serve families of missing people. When I see the length of time some people have been missing I know it must feel to their families that their missing loved ones have been forgotten by the world. CUE shows them that is not the case.
