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.

My experience with Community United Effort-CUE Center for Missing Persons, began over 12 years ago when my sister Allison Jackson Foy went missing from Wilmington NC.

As a family from out of state, traveling to an unknown city to find our missing loved one,we had no idea what to expect, what to do or who to turn to for help. We met with law enforcement and then were pretty much on our own, making flyers searching in the worst parts of town and trying to just wrap our heads around the fact that my sister Allison was missing and what that really meant.

As a family in this situation, you feel as if no one is listening to you(at that time especially law enforcement) and in our case that nobody truly cared. Over and over again we heard "she'll turn up", "She's an adult,she has a right to walk away", and the list goes on. Whenever we tried to explain that Allison would not just pick up and leave without her two children we heard those exact same lines. There was no search, there was no investigation, there was just us!

Until we were given CUE center's information and we made a call. Monica Caison and this organization did for our family and our missing loved one what nobody else did. Searching the city of Wilmington, being our advocate and teaching me to be my sisters advocate, working with law enforcement, getting Allison's story in the media and so much more. Even after we left Wilmington, CUE continued to work to find my sister, never giving up hope and teaching my family and I the same. Late night phone calls, meetings with law enforcement, active searches for Allison and all at no cost ever to myself or anyone in our family .

Two and a half years later Allison was recovered, although it was months before she was identified through DNA. (we knew it was her) Without this incredible organization and the tenacity of Monica Caison and her volunteers we would have never found Allison and would have never been able to bring her home. We would have never had answers for her children, my brother and sister or my father. The hardest part truly is the not knowing.

12 years later as we seek justice final resolution and an arrest in Allison's case, CUE Center still stands and fights with us. Why? Because this organization cares, they are in it for the long haul, fighting for the missing and their families on a daily basis. They understand the epidemic that is the missing in our world and take action on a daily basis.

Over the years I have become more than just a "client served". I believe in this organization so much that I have become a volunteer and serve as the NJ State Outreach Coordinator. In those roles I have once again experienced CUE at work, but this time with numerous other families who have walked this path.

This organization is second to none in the field of missing persons. Highly skilled volunteers from all over the country certified and trained, tops in their field. They do so much more than flyers, they are a "boots on the ground organization", National Conferences held yearly for training, the National Road Tour, internships, mentoring, and even a program for young people: "Safe and Found".

In closing, I cannot be more thankful or grateful for CUE, all the volunteers and of course the founder Monica Caison. I am honored to serve this organization alongside some incredible volunteers nationwide. And if you are looking for a charity to donate to, this is the one. All monies go directly to the search effort and no one including the founder ever havereceived a salary.

To date, CUE has help over 12,000 families like mine, because; "Every missing person is somebody's child"!

I have been in Law Enforcement for 37 years working primarily in investigations. I am retired from the New York City Police Department and have been working for the past 16 years in Horry County Police Department in SC where I am in command of the Crime Scene Investigations Unit, Property & Evidence and the Drug Testing Lab. Over the past 8 or more years I have come to know CUE and it's founder Monica Caison. Being in Law enforcement you encounter all types of people. Missing persons cases are always difficult, it is not a crime to go missing, but when those circumstances leave questionable doubt concerning how that person went missing or an immediate need for a lost person, whether they be child, elderly, handicapped, abducted, etc, it is difficult in todays society to rally up dozens of police officers to form a search. Scheduling and restrictions in personnel make it so difficult to get people to conduct a competent search for the victim or evidence. CUE has been able to come in a augment Police Officers by providing competent qualified personnel to search. CUE comes prepared to handle most situations using search teams on foot, 4x4, horseback, boats, drones and so much more. They come prepared to stay with a mobile command post to schedule searchers and to document the areas searched and the findings. The personnel that make up their board of directors are some of the most caring and compassionate people I have ever encountered. I have had the privilege to attend their annual conference and training in Wilmington NC and have spent hours with the families of victims and listened to their heart wrenching stories. In all that time I have come to find one common denominator, the CUE family and Monica Caison genuinely care and make a difference in peoples lives. To these families, CUE means everything, many of the searchers have volunteered their time because they have suffered a loss or tragedy in their past and they are compassionate about helping others. CUE trains all their searchers in evidence collection and preservation, in searching not only the area of interest, but the social media sites and any place where information and or clues can be found. When they say "Every Missing Person is Somebody's Child" they truly stand behind their words and are prepared at a moments notice to respond with professional searches ready to assist Law Enforcement,, a family or whomever needs them. These folks have helped me solve several high profile cases through there search efforts and brought answers to families that may not have otherwise received them. To Monica and CUE, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!

I worked with CUE over multiple days as a searcher for a missing person in Myrtle Beach, SC. The professionalism & dedication of Monica Caison & this group is beyond measure.
They are compassionate, thorough and detail oriented. No stone left unturned is not just a euphemism with CUE. They do everything in their power to locate missing persons.
I am honored to be a very small cog in the vast wheel of resources for CUE.

I discovered CUE in 2011 when a coworkers best friend went missing and they came in to do a search. I was blown away by their dedication and persistence and knew I had to get involved. I signed up as a volunteer and attended my first annual conference. It was a life changing and defining experience.
This organization is made up of Volunteers who are a lifeline to the families of the missing. I am still blown away 7 years later.

I was honored to have the opportunity to participate in a recent search with CUE. I was so impressed with the organization and of this organization. They have the techniques of search and rescue Down to a fine science. I never realized so much work actually went into searching. Additionally, the volunteers are awesome! They spend their time and money to help strangers:)
They are all working together for one goal! Although they may be strangers, they quickly unite as part of a valuable team:)
I wish I could do more to help!

I have been a volunteer with CUE since 2011. This is a hard working and dedicated group of volunteers who give their time, sweat and tears to help families and agencies try and resolve a missing persons case. The work is hard and requires you to know your skills and limitations. Sometimes we get volunteers who sign up to help,but have their own agenda....these people don't stay with CUE long because we don't allow individual agendas. We are all working toward the same goal...which is to help bring resolve to a case. We don't work for notoriety, money, fame or personal agendas. CUE takes a stand to always be an advocate for families and missing persons. However, putting other volunteers at risk is not something we allow. A K9 handler, Briar M posted comments on 8/22/2017 stating negative comments about CUE because she was asked to leave a search. This handler was asked to leave the search because she was putting herself and others in danger, and left the search without notifying the proper individuals. This was not the first time she had been spoken to about her actions during a search. Sadly, she has made comments on here that do not reflect the true story of her being asked to leave. She neglects to mention that lodging, meals and fuel reimbursement is provided by CUE to all volunteers. She also fails to mention that she, not CUE, is the one who chose to obtain and train a K9. CUE appreciates, and holds volunteers at an utmost level of respect, however, will not allow reckless behavior to interfere with a missing persons case.

This is the most dedicated selfless organization! The saying "every missing person is somebody's child" always holds true with this organization. The founder and searchers donate many hours of their time, travel regularly, obtain training, work cases, fundraise, train K9's.and horses, use their personal vehicles all in the hope to help families of missing ontain resolution. It is an honor to be able to volunteer with this organization.

CUE/Monica Caison was working on my sister's case long before I was even aware of it. Concerned citizens who lived in my sister's area were already consulting with them before we even knew they existed...despite the fact that the man who murdered my sister (her husband) was making life miserable for them, even making threats, they were undeterred, and supported my family throughout. They were thoroughly caring and professional, unlike the organization that the murderer contracted with to throw the police off, even accused my sister (the victim) of drug abuse, dragging her name erroneously through the mud. The people at CUE are trained and experienced...the organization that worked w/ my "brother in law" was not, and made a hellish experience even worse. People may be well meaning, but that doesn't mean they are effective. CUE knows who the authentically trained professionals are in your area, please save yourself a lot of trouble, and use them.

I have been a part of this organization since 2009. Since my experience involves many many searches for the missing that this organization handles every year I am honored to be a part of the search for missing persons. This organization has assisted many many families to gain resolution with their missing loved ones. The support this organization gives to the families of the missing is unmatched. With the help of donations the searches will continue. The quest for the missing never ends.
I came across a post that I was taken a-back by. It was posted by a Briar M. on 8/22/17. As a CUE volunteer for the past 8 years, I have worked closely with the founder and learned so much such as planning the search, looking for search areas with high probability of locating the missing, missing person behaviors. I find it odd that someone feels that the past three years of searching for missing persons was a “waste”. How misguided! I have never seen any volunteers treated badly. I am not sure what she means about the politics involved. This organization searches for the missing, bringing awareness to the cause and devoted support to the families of the missing. This organization has performed more searches that one could ever count. Aiding over 11,000 families for the past 20 years is quite a feat. I am sorry that her issues bled onto this organization and she felt that cutting off fundraising is the answer. I hope that she find her way to something that she can really do. I myself have traveled thousands of miles searching for the missing. The commitment of this organization is unmatched. I am proud to serve the families of the missing in search of their loved one in the name of Community United Effort, In support of missing persons.

I was a volunteer, and, spent a great deal of money and time for 3 years...but it was a waste. Volunteers with this group can be treated very badly, I certainly was. I was accused more than once of doing something I never did, and after I was called a liar...I left....I cannot recommend that anyone get involved. The politics are ridiculous. Do yourself a favor...do not volunteer with this group...do NOT give money to this group.

You had a habit of not completing assignments, taking off without notification and not telling the truth concerning areas that were to be searched by you. You were asked to leave with no return after several opportunities to complete task. All searchers are reimbursed for fuel and meals and lodging are always in place upon arrival for each search. Many complaints of your attitude were noted for a long period of time, however you did not like to talk about it and made no effort to correct it.Thank you

Unaffiliated, I attended the 2017 conference because I wanted to know what kind of people use their dogs, their gear, their time to search for a stranger's loved one. What group has the trust and confidence of Law Enforcement, while extending compassion and comfort to grieving families? I volunteered for a search and met these tireless, doggedly tenacious people on the ground. CUE is entirely donation funded and staffed by volunteers, including Mrs. Caison, who takes no salary from the organization. This is one organization that I believe is not motivated by money or fame, but truly serving the greater good, serving families and assisting law enforcement. The following is a list of FREE services provided:

I heard about Community United Effort (CUE) while I was following the disappearance and murder of Morgan Harrington. I looked into the organization and I was very impressed with Monica Caison and the professionalism of her organization. I was very interested in volunteering and finally joined 3 1/2 years ago. Since then I have become a Board Member and I am amazed at the hard work done by all of our volunteers. With CUE, once we are invited in by either the family or law enforcement, we advocate for the missing and their family, even after a missing person is brought home. Many of our family members become CUE members. Monica hosts an annual conference in March and brings together families of the missing, searchers, law enforcement and instructors from many different areas in the world of the missing. It's time for families to help each other, learning about new ways of investigating a missing person, certification in first aid and CPR, etc. I consider all of the volunteers to be a member of my CUE family and so happy I joined.

Not only is Community United Effort there to help organize the search for the missing person, we are there as support for the family during the search and long after....anytime you call CUE's number, chances are Monica will answer. It doesn't matter if it is day, night, weekend or holiday...Not one volunteer, all the way up to Monica gets one cent for what they do and they do it gladly. Some of the things CUE does for the families include...searches, support to families during interviews and getting the word out, fliers, candlelight vigils, Road Tour to bring awareness of the missing and an annual conference for families, searchers, law enforcement, first responders, etc...the conference provides support for the families by having other families that understand what they are going through, education for searchers and first responders and a candlelight vigil that honors missing people that have been found and their family members and also recognition of those volunteers that go above and beyond...Monica gives her all willingly, sometimes missing special times with her own family....

Although I do not have a loved one who has gone missing, I am a missing persons advocate. I have had the opportunity to volunteer with Community United Effort on occasions when they are working near or in the state of Indiana. Each time, I have been in awe of the amount of effort and professionalism each volunteer on the searches displays. Typically the family members of the missing are there. CUE gives them hope and encouragement that their loved one has not been forgotten. Imagine being in their shoes. I know that I would want everyone in the world looking for my loved one. Although that isn't possible, CUE shows them that people do care and they aren't forgotten. And CUE brings in the many resources needed to do a search for someone who is missing. Monica and her team work tirelessly to assure if they need search dogs, they are there. If they need horses, boats, ATVs, etc,, they will be there. This organization goes above and beyond in their efforts to bring answers to families of the missing. I feel honored to have had the opportunity to work with them and very blessed that they have welcomed me to help in their efforts. They certainly are deserving of a spot on the Top Rated List of Great Nonprofits.

The volunteers with CUE, the center for missing persons, is located in NC. They travel far distances and group together with volunteers from different states to look for missing persons from all areas.

Rain, swamps, hot humid weather,venomous snakes, alligators, high weeds, bugs...none of these stop them from doing their important job...helping family's find missing loved ones.

Compassion, Concern and Caring is what you will receive from CUE when needed.

Please consider them when you choose to make a donation. (travel, sleeping expenses)

CUE Center has been the only one that has actually done what they said they would do. Not only did they do what they said they would but also did it starting Immediately upon getting my form for submission completed. They continue to work closely and diligently on a 9 year cold case (when they came on board). Almost 10 years now. They have gotten answers that I was unsucessful at obtaining! I have had so many organizations that would say they would help but did not or fizzled out shortly after coming on board with my son's missing case. (usually because the newer current active cases were needing them or the paying one's). I am finally able to relax the stress a great deal knowing I am no longer fighting, searching, seeking answers alone! Thanks to CUE, some of my burden has been relieved! Although my son has not been found as of yet, I feel confident that FINALLY our family has the help it desperately needed all along!

As a State Outreach Coordinator for the CUE Center for Missing Persons for several years, I could list the obvious reasons who this organization is so rewarding - the dedication, the mission, the caring and compassion, the individual talents that so many bring to the table to assist families.
However, it is the nuances that are not seen by everyone which create a long lasting impression on others and me. The “giving it your all” attitude of the search and rescue professionals in all manner of weather conditions is but one example. The hand on a shoulder, the phone call answered in the middle of the night; the poster made at a moments notice; the ability to listen to a grieving family, to provide purpose for the family while in crisis, the lack of judgment, no matter what the victim's circumstance, the unique and always impactful Annual Conference; lessons learned by example; the sense of family; always striving to educate the public and to optimize the chances of locating a missing person; the longevity of the relationships that never end after a rescue or recovery- Rather, they serve as a beginning.
Such is the flow of the Cue Center with Founder Monica Caison providing the training and the inspiration to all who give so selflessly as volunteers.
I highly recommend this non-profit for the highest rating!
Respectfully,

The level of professionalism, respect, integrity, dedication, compassion, and deep commitment exhibited by this organization as a whole, and it's volunteers, both in the search field and in the advocacy and educational arena are above and beyond that of any other in the country today.. For this to continue to hold true, after more than twenty years, is a true and real testament to the mission, values, and very heart and soul of Monica Caison, the founder of the CUE Center, and all of the countless devoted volunteers that she instills and motivates every moment of every day. Thanks to the tireless efforts of CUE, it's search teams, and advocates, and with the respect and collaboration of Law Enforcement and professionals in related fields from across the nation, there has and will continue to be, resolution for thousands of loved ones of missing persons...

Having seen the work that CUE has done for a few families personally, I already knew what an amazing organization this was... however it wasn't until I participated in a search effort myself with CUE that I realized just how much everyone with CUE is not only dedicated to what they do, but how above and beyond they go for the families they are helping, and the people who are working with them, volunteering, or helping in some capacity. The searchers were treated with just as much care and respect as the families were... This organization goes above and beyond in all areas, from their dedication, to the way they manage every incident, to their level of care and caring, from the tiniest thing to the biggest... it all matters... Absolutely exceptional on all counts...

Close to 7 years ago I heard about CUE when Brittanee Drexel went missing, she was from my hometown and it struck me like a brick- that someone so innocent just vanished without a trace- I began to help on searches not just for Brittanee but for several others that were missing. The passion & the heart that CUE showed to the families & volunteers made me want to be a part and do my part with CUE. Helping families keep hope & get answers and closure. I can only speak for myself based on my experiences as a volunteer but I know if I ever went missing that CUE would find me and bring me back home... Amazing organization funded by the caring hearts of others...

My son Damien Mark Sharp went missing almost 11years ago he was 22 years young at the time. The worst fear is hearing your son or daughter is missing and possabily dead. Who do you go to? who do you talk to? were do you start? The first few days are like a fog hope you have someone by you because you don't remember what was said and what you did. The tears come everyday and just doesn't stop. The CUE knows what to do and who can help. Monica Caison is the best woman I have every met she is strong and soft at the same time she can put your mind at ease. She can put a search party together in hours when she starts her call outs people answer from ground pounders to K-9s ect. I met Monica and the CUE staff on a road trip, and the words I have waited to here was I can help you. Monica and the CUE has. I am now a NY/PA state coordinator and will be there for others who do not know were to go or who to talk to. The CUE has changed my life forever.

Never have I come across an organization with more integrity, dedication, respect, compassion, professionalism, and care then CUE Center for Missing Persons. CUE's reputation has a solid foundation grown from the families it has served for over two decades, and the agencies it has assisted in that time. The search resources CUE provides are top of the line in their experience, professional standards, and heart... The educational platforms and awareness campaigns, both held at national levels, are exceptional... and their level of family support is beyond compare. To find all of these qualities, and so many more, in any organization that is nonprofit, and completely volunteer, and never cost a penny to any family or law enforcement agency, is truly and simply astounding....

This organization has changed my life. I was unaware of the CUE Center when my family suffered a missing person, I came to know them when a friend of a co-worker went missing and they came into the picture. Watching them in action, watching how they stepped in and supported my co-worker and helped her through the process showed me that this was an organization I wanted to be involved with. I am working on my 5th year as a volunteer for CUE Center and I am still amazed everyday by the difference Monica and the volunteers make in peoples lives. It's unfortunate that there is a need for an Organization to assist in the search for the missing and to support these families during the worst of times, but what a blessing that they are there.

It's difficult to find the passion and drive necessary in one person to dream of, and make successful an organization of such importance and critical work. Yet it took one person to discipline themselves enough to continue with their dream...and turn it into a Community United Effort. Monica Caison is a true community leader, a dedicated hard worker, a talented and intuitive visionary and more than valuable resource to the families of missing persons. She is a "gatherer" of people and resources that when brought together, continues to branch out as everyone's strengths meet and strengthen each mission further. Monica is what I refer to as a "Root Ma". Without her specific gift, her fuel, her drive towards her thirsty purpose - CUE would not exist. To that end...Thank God for all the people stepping up, and meeting their purpose through Monica, those meant to follow this leader...for they have been true heroes in her eyes as well. She has inspired many hearts, inspired many positive actions, changed people and families forever with her support, and has helped where real help was the last thing expected in a sad, dark place for many. This world is a much better place because of her leadership and her footprint will never be diminished. Nor will any of the foot prints walking beside her.

Monica Caison started CUE because she saw a huge need for missing persons and their grief-stricken families who had no where else to turn. For twenty years, Monica has been on call 365 days a year, 24/7 without a break or a salary. While raising five children and being gramma and wife. All CUE donations go toward support of the cause- not one dime goes to Monica or the many volunteers. Monica is the center of a whirlwind of love that gets bigger every day. She is held in high regard by all Law Enforcement agencies for her determination, hard work and savvy in this difficult arena, and is nothing short of Sainthood to the families and the missing. I was lost until I found CUE as a single mom with a missing daughter, and CUE has been there for me and thousands of others. every step of the way.
I do not believe a Greater Non-profit exists in this country. Monica and CUE are held in the highest regard by all who experience this remarkable, loving assistance. Thank You, Monica and CUE. Gretchen Ring, mother of Heidi Ring.

I am a state cordinator, searcher and volunteer for CUE. I am also current Law Enforcement. I have been with CUE for 4 years now and I truly believe in this organization. They go above and beyond to search for the missing and to bring hope to the victims families. Ive met many of those families and they all have shared that they wouldve been lost without CUE. CUE is more than an organization once you are apart of CUE you are apart of something much bigger than yourself, that is truly making a difference. CUE becomes a second family and together everyone plays a part in bringing hope to the hopeless, shining light in the darkest of times and never giving up when searching for a loved one. Monica Caison the founder, is the backbone of CUE and with her leadership imparts wisdom and passion to all she meets and especially the members of this organization. Monica Caison rarely will accept recognition as she knows she could not do any of this alone, however shes one of the best leaders Ive ever known and she is who you want standing in your corner should you ever find yourself in a position to need help with finding a missing loved one. I am proud to be apart of this family!#

I have watched the founder of CUE go from a kid to wonderful a Mother of 5 while still finding time to devote her life to this cause. Never before have I witnessed such selflessness, love and empathy for people who she doesn't even know and who have run out of hope. She is that last spark of hope for these desperate families. I am amazed at the willpower of this woman and so very proud to call Monica Caison my dear friend. There is no other like her & this organization that defines the words strength & determination.

My sister disappeared three years ago under mysterious circumstances. We contacted CUE and they worked with us to localize the search area. They set up a search in the most likely site and had an army of dogs and searchers on horseback to look at a large wooded area. We didn't find my sister, but we know we could never have searched this large tract and discounted it without CUE's help. They are amazing and the people volunteering are so sincere and professional.

A wonderful ay to help families who deserve closure when a loved one goes missing. To participate in the process of searching for this loved one, you come in contact with the family to know their loved one. This organization is here to ease the pain and let them know that they matter and others care.

I can't imagine a more scary time with no one to talk to than when your loved one disappears! Unfortunately I went through that and the only people I found that I felt I could talk to were the people at CUE, They never limited how often or when, were more supportive and understanding than anyone locally and kept me functional for the rest of my family. I can never express how much I appreciate all they've done through the years and never asking for anything.
These are wonderful people, 100% volunteer organization!!!!!!!!!

My history with this incredible organization; CUE Center for Missing Persons is similar to so many who either support this organization as volunteers or donors. I was a family member with a missing person, my sister Allison Jackson Foy. We were a family who had no idea how to find Allison or where to start, especially since my sister lived in a different state from us all when she went missing. We were strangers in a city and state we knew nothing about and in a world (the world of the missing) that we knew even less about!

The police were of little help at the beginning of Allison's case because they believed my sister was a walk away, they refused to listen to my family when we said Allison would never just leave without her children. They knew better then her own family and they left us to fend for ourselves in this city we knew nothing about. We found ourselves in areas we had no business being in and trying to get Allison's face and information out there without much luck, or many people caring.

All of that changed when CUE Center and founder Monica Caison entered the picture. Monica was the first person to truly listen to us and believe that Allison was not a walk away, the first to really care and understand what we were going through. From the night she returned our first call, to now almost 10 years later CUE Center, Monica Caison and their arsenal of professionals have been there; searching, advocating and getting Allison much needed press while teaching us how to navigate the unknown.

Allison would have never have been recovered almost two years later with out this organization. Today they remain by our side as we seek justice and final resolution for Allison, we await on an arrest in her case and CUE continues to work with us and stand by our side. This organizations knowledge, experience, compassion, empathy and genuine concern go above and beyond any that I know, leaving a family with hope, something that a family with a missing loved one needs so much. This organization also lets you know that you are not alone.

My experience with CUE led me to become an active volunteer in the organization with a personal goal of helping other families dealing with a missing loved one, after all who better than someone who has walked in your shoes. Today I am one of the NJ State Outreach Coordinators for CUE and proud to serve as a volunteer.

If you are looking for an organization to donate to, this is the one! A nonprofit where no one, even the founder, ever takes a paycheck. All monies go to help get to the next search so families never have to pay for CUE's services. CUE's searchers are all professional and certified, they are a boots on the ground organization.

If you are looking to volunteer and get involved, this is the organization to give your time to. CUE Center for Missing Persons is all about doing, getting the job done when others can't or wont! As a volunteer you will be helping those in need and help bring answers to those who desperately need them.

Most importantly, if you are a family member with a missing loved one, CUE is the organization you want to call. They do so much more than flyers and are with you each step of the way with trained professionals, they are the team you want with you as you become the voice for your missing loved one! I cannot say enough about CUE, it's founder and their volunteers who are based all over the country. This national organization is the help your family needs.

Whatever has brought you to read this review, please know that as a client and volunteer I have never been more satisfied. CUE has been my grace disguised and I can honestly say that in the world of the missing, there is no other organization out there like them, they are second to none!

I first came to know about CUE Center for Missing Persons and it's founder Monica Caison over 6 years ago when my sister Allison Jackson Foy went missing from Wilmington NC. My family and I were all from out of state and we flew into Wilmington to find my sister. Law enforcement gave us the old "she'll turn up", and were hard pressed to listen to my family and I when we told them Allison would never leave without her two young daughters. We gave them all the information we had and we were basically on our own. We made flyers and hung them and handed them out and spoke with people. We tried going to the last place she was known to be seen and sought answers there, but to no avail. We looked in the worst areas of town where we had no business being, but we had heard rumors that Allison had been seen there. We probably would have left Wilmington days later expecting the police to do their job and take care of it all, thank God we did not. Speaking with the front desk clerk at our hotel and telling her why we were there turned out to be the best thing we could do. One day after hanging posters and looking for Allison we came back to our room to find a note slipped under our door from the desk clerk telling us we needed to contact CUE Center and Monica Caison. We did and the next morning she was at our hotel and with us from morning until the wee hours of themorning, searching, teaching us, getting us media attention, and listening and caring. This advocacy, searching and so much more went on even after we had to leave Wilmington and return to our homes ten days later. CUE Center and Monica also educated law enforcement along the way teaching them and my family what databases to put Allison into, DNA needed to be collected and put into CODIS so that Allison could be identified if needed, Physical searches were conducted by CUE and their amazing volunteers, all of this at no cost to me or my family, all of this done with highly trained professional SAR Teams and K9 Teams, all of this done with a love and concern unlike any other my family and I have ever experienced. Almost two years later due to CUE Centers efforts and tenacity my sister was recovered in a low lying ditch a little over two miles from where she was last seen lying next to another lady, Angela Nobles Rothen who went missing a year after Allison. Both were victims of a homicide. My family and I know that without CUE Center and Monica Allison would have never been found and my father and my family and Allison's two young daughters would never have had answers. To this date 6 and a half years later CUE Center and Monica remain on this second part of the journey with us ; the part where we seek justice. CUE and Monica and all her volunteers have never wavered in their dedication and compassion and are always there, still seeking justice with us. In June this awesome organization got a billbooard donated for a year with Allison and Angels's pictures and all necessary information; r minding the community that these cases remain unsolved and getting much needed continued media. I cannot say enough about this amazing organization and it's founder Monica Caison, there is no other missing persons organization out there like them. This woman, and this organization which have helped over 9000 families since their inception are making a true difference in the world. I and my family are forever indebted, in truth there really are no words. Today I am honored to be a volunteer in this organization and serve as the NJ State Outreach Coordinator.

I reached out to CUE in 2007 when my adult son went missing. I heard these words "I can help", and I felt a weight lift , knowing there was someone who not only understood what my family and I were going through, but had the knowledge and experience to guide us through the maze of the world of missing persons. Eight years later I am a CUE volunteer and help search for the missing alongside the most dedicated and selfless people I've ever known.

My son, Michael Austin Davis went missing June 26, 2007 from Jacksonville, FL. When our family was at it's wits end as to what to do next, and Law Enforcement told us there wasn't a lot more they could do unless new information came we reached out to CUE, made a phone call late one night and Monica answered the phone and when I told her a brief outline of our situation she said, "I can help". Those were the most wonderful words a family can hear, when you feel like you're standing alone, now you have someone that understands, that knows how to get searchers on the ground for your child, and also provides support through all of the emotional ups and downs that every family goes through. So I first knew CUE as a victim, and then I began to assist with Searches, went through trainings, became certified as a SAR Tech II, and as of April 1st, 2012 my K9 Jester is nationally certified in HRD land. I've seen CUE from a Family's point of View and also as a searcher since 2008, and have Highest Respect for all that they do, and the way in which it is done. Every search is prepared for well in advance of the search, all searchers are taken care of, fed, housed and appreciated as they are a vital part of all that CUE accomplishes for Missing Persons.

I am one of the long time Cue Members, not as active as I use to be, but this organization has taught me so much. I started when I was laid off from my job. It was the most rewarding thing I ever done. Not only did I get to help families that had loved ones missing, but Monica taught me a lot, of skills that I can use in every day life. Being a nonprofit, we raised money for the group. I learned how to talk to companies to get help with our group, I got the chance to be on the news to talk about a fundraiser .I met so many people that will be life time friends. We also do fingerprinting, to help the kids in the community.
But, the most important thing is helping people that think there is no hope. Cue give the people that have lost loved ones hope and faith, and that someone does cares about them. Even if there loved one is found, Cue stays in contact with the families. This is the greatest organization, they ask for nothing in return for their help

On Labor Day weekend almost 7 yrs ago our son went missing in Wilmington, NC. He was there visiting a college friend. His friend called Monica & by the time we got there, she was already working on finding him. Monica was with us from the beginning walking the streets, putting up posters & contacting the news & law enforcement to get the word out. And she kept us focused through it all. She worked tirelessly with us trying to find him. After almost 5 days someone who had seen the news spotted him in a swampy area under an on ramp to the freeway. He had fallen from the ramp almost 40 ft. & was badly injured but alive. I cannot say enough good things about Monica & her organization. These people work day & night to find missing people "who are someone's children". They are so dedicated to what they do. Without her we may not have found our son and he wouldn't have seen his oldest daughter graduate from high school last month. There aren't enough words to thank Monica for what she does. She never gives up.

My brother went missing 7 years ago. It was the hardest thing I think i will ever have to deal with in this lifetime. He was found last year, and the burden of looking for him is now gone. Monica and Cue Center are doing great work for the families of the missing by lending knowledge, empathy, immediacy, and pure drive to the cause of finding these missing family members. I believe the hope they give these families is something you cannot put a price on. The work Monica is doing may well change the face of missing persons investigations in that these cases will become priority and more solvable. This organization is going to put the right light on the cause of missing persons and their families, and give awareness to the general public of these cases. They are the good guys and I hope many more people join them. All these cases are solvable given enough manpower and dedication. Monica and Cue are a step in the right direction.

My son, Eric Lee Franks, has been missing from Saginaw, Michigan since the Spring of 2011. I was told about CUE Center for Missing Persons through a internet friend on a site helping find answers about my son's disappearance. The person was so enthused about this center and convinced that Monica could help me. I got in touch with Monica Caison, the founder of CUE Center in Wilmington, NC. She immediately got back with me and was kind to help spread my son's missing information and pictures. She featured him on CUE Center's facebook page. My son was born in NC coincidentally, where we adopted him when he was 5 weeks old. One of my sisters helped as a volunteer when CUE Center held their annual Roadside Rally in Wilmington this year. I was unable to attend, but was pleased to see Monica Caison and my sister, Debra Turbeville, holding posters of Eric along with many other missing persons' posters. The media was there and spoke with my sister. This past month, my sister, Debra, and another sister , Faye Stanford and I went as volunteers to Florida for a search and candle light vigil for missing man, Austin Davis. It was a learning experience to watch as Monica and her volunteers worked tirelessly to help find him. We were treated warmly and were allowed to put out missing fliers and posters for my son, Eric. Later this year, we will be thankful to be a part of the CUE Center for the Missing's 11th annual " On the Road to Remember" tour across various states to let families of the missing have time to publicly pay tribute to their missing person. Our family will be hosting something in honor of Eric in Michigan. I truly appreciate all of the help Monica Caison and the CUE Center for the Missing has done for Eric and his family as well as for so many others. I am proud to be associated with an effort such as that and would highly recommend it to others. Thank you for the opportunity to again thank Monica Caison and the CUE CENTER for the Missing .

Can you imagine an organization whose leader works tirelessly on behalf of people she has never met and for $0.00? Can you imagine a woman who inspires others to volunteer to crawl through crocodile infested water, muddy ground, forests, etc, in order to find someone they have never met? Can you imagine a woman and an organization that provide love, kindness, hugs, tears, laughter, and support to people they have never met before, but will surely know for the rest of their lives? I can. CUE is this organization, and Monica Caison is That Woman! Together, they are CUE and they care about you and me. They care about someone they have never met -- someone's daughter, sister, mother, father, son, brother... they care enough to look for these missing people, and to provide support and hope to the missing's loved ones.

They do not just talk the talk. They literally "walk the walk."

Monica Caison and CUE are blessings to us all. I can think of no better place to put my support - financial and physical.

Thank you, Monica! Thank you, CUE!

I participated in a CUE search this past weekend as a HRD Canine handler. Having had some unpleasant experiences in the past with SAR groups I was somewhat leery but was happy to discover that the CUE coordinators Dawn S. and Laurie R. were professional and personable. Search sectors were mapped and marked and detailed debrief reports were completed.
I was touched by the kindness of the family members of the missing women and I was happy to exchange hugs and let then know that others do care about their plight. Late in the afternoon as I followed my dog on my hands and knees through thick thorny brush those family members were my inspiration. CUE is a remarkable organization and I was glad to play a part in sharing Love and Hope.

From the moment Monica Caison and CUE became involved in the search for one of my best friend's sisters who had gone missing yet her case egregiously ignored by law enforcement, it became clear that the exceptional efforts of Monica and team would not stop until the mission of finding her was complete. Monica does not discriminate, she is determined to help families and those that are missing reunite or find peace. I've watched my friend's sister be found and laid to rest. There is no question that without this remarkable woman and all of her tireless volunteers that may never have happened. It's been almost 8 years for my friend and the organization has gone on to help hundreds of families desperate to find their loved ones. For some it's a job, for Monica it's a calling.

A friend of our son when missing last August in SC and we went to show support to the family. That's went I met CUE. That's when I met Monica. I was blown away, they had come from all over the East Coast and even further. I offered to go into the woods with a K9 handler and it changed my life. I've since been on many searches for missing people in our area and once to Florida to help look for the son of the K9 handler I first when in with, who's been missing for 7 years. CUE is a group of professional volunteers. They take what they do very seriously and they are family. If you spend much time with them you become a part of that family. Through tears, blood, sweat and love for each other and for the ones we search for, we are CUE.

I hope and pray that whoever reads this never needs CUE, but if you ever are in that situation, when someone you love can't be found, I promise you, you will want CUE in your corner.

When I learned of my nephews disappearance in August of 2013, I began looking for help to find him. I ran across the CUE website online, and remember thinking how I wish they were in SC. About a week later (could have been a couple of days) my brother told me about people coming in to search. I asked him if it was Monica. He thought it was Cindy, but through something called CUE, and he thought Monica was one of the names. I was like.. "Ask for Monica!" Yeah, little did I know at that point, but it was that moment that I sighed in relief. Although that time is still like a blur, I didn't yet know these people, but remember having a good feeling a move was made in the right direction. I had no idea how good. I feel like CUE has saved my family, and am so grateful Missy and Lonnie had someone to be with them, guide them, listen to them, grieve with them. Cindy and George have been been totally awesome. I'd heard George's name so much, had no idea who he was, but knew he was an angel. Through support, the knowledge, the guidance, the 24hr/day availability through it all. Monica has been a lifesaver, and has built a crew that follow her footsteps.
To have someone on your side, that knows what to do, and is prepared to do it, and does it.. no words. Monica and our CUE family. Although I have not met them all, I have met a few, spoken with more than a few, heard the stories of so many, I feel that I know them all. We share a common bond, and as upset as I was in the beginning that I even had to learn of these caring, helpful people, I love them all and thank God every day for Monica Caison, and that this is what she decided to do with her life. Thank you for helping us, for helping so many of the missing, Monica. The lives you've touched, you've made so much better, and like the day we learned of our missing loved one, will never be the same.

Although my time with CUE has been very short, I assure all who read this article, Monica Caison has one huge desire to find all missing persons. She is an advocate, a leader, a wealth of experience, a friend, a Woman, a Mother and a Grandmother. In my life of many years and diverse situations, I have never encountered anyone as compelling and caring. C.U.E. has brought forth the best in humanity from so many volunteers, who desire simply, to help others. No fame, no glory, no heroes, just real people with an inner passion to be of some form of assistance to another.
