Charley mentioned in Topeka, KS news article

From this article about a fundraiser for a missing persons org, Media for the Missing:

Media for the Missing, the nonprofit organization, will take information about missing and unidentified people supplied by law enforcement, the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, The Charley Project, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and other related agencies and make it available to the general public through its website, brochures and nationwide touch-screen kiosk system set up in high-traffic locations, such as welcome centers, truck stops or medical facilities.

Their website links to me, saying: “Charley Project is very detailed when giving case information as well as providing several links for each profile. They provide several options to find cases.”

Sweet.

    You see, when it comes to U.S. missing persons on the internet, you and your site are VERY well known. If you google the name of a missing person that is on the Charley Project, your webpage for them is the first to come up.

    I am glad The Charley Project was mentioned. If I remember correctly, a while back a newscast lifted info from Charley but did not credit you. I think people interested in missing persons probably know The Charley Project is the best, but it it good to see your site out into the mainstream. (Maybe it is, so sorry if my assumption is incorrect)

    To the Charley Project: You guys should recieve recognition for your hard work. It’s not easy keeping up with everything in the world of the missing.

    To date your organization is the only one who gives the details that you do. After I have read about a case, the only question I have is where is this person, you have answered everything else. Super job. Not only are we attempting to increase exposure for missing people, but for organizations such as yours. This is why do provide a direct link to information. In our system the public sees exactly what is on a site. Everything is displayed unedited.

    By the end of our phases, your org will be viewable within every visual method we provide, from a national kiosk at welcome centers and businesses, to billboards, to a 24 hour missing person’s network.

    To all of your readers: Charley Project was the first organization to participate within our new system. They will always be the first in everything we provide. They were the first in our spolighting orgs., we link to them first if there is a duplcate profile with another org, etc. We remember those who had faith in us from the start.

    We will be mentioning your organization in as many interviews as possible.

    Once we get our missing persons resource center completed, there will be many ways the public will have access to your site 24hrs-365 days a year.

    Thank you for your outstanding efforts in providing information to help find missing people!

      A slight correction though: the Charley Project is run by only one person, that is, me. I’m a 26-year-old off-and-on college student and professional slacker from Ohio/Indiana.

    Congrats, Meaghan. And on another off topic note, they finally found Christine Jarrett, buried under the shed in her backyard. Husband arrested. I’m sure it’ll be in the next batch of resolves, but I heard it on the radio Thursday.

    • Meaghan April 21, 2012 / 9:11 am

      Yeah, I saw.

      Sometimes when I’m feeling lazy I do an update without doing resolves, even if I have some pending.

        It was just local news here, I always feel the need to share 😉

    Off topic. Have you ever heard of a chess prodigy named Peter Jonathan Winston (DOB: March 18, 1958) who vanished from New York on or around January 26, 1978 when he was 19? He left his home in New York City during a severe winter storm, apparently lacking identification or money, was later reported missing, and never seen again. He apparently was having mental problems at the time.
