Review for Community United Effort (CUE), Wilmington, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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 .

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I honestly do not know of any changes I would recommend. I hope they will continue to do what I and my family have personally witnessed....help the missing to be found and help their families feel some comfort in knowing someone cares and is willing to actually help.
