The missing persons articles I would’ve shared on Facebook if I could have

Yeah, for the uninitiated, Facebook is mainly where I share missing persons related news. But as I addressed in my previous entry, that’s not an option right now. So I’m sharing them here:

From Joliet, Illinois: 17 Missing In Will County: One Joliet Case Dates To 1957. Includes a photo of Sarah Elizabeth Avon which I hadn’t previously seen; I have added it.

From Rice County, Kansas: Five years after she disappeared, the search for Megan continues. The Megan here is Megan Renee Foglesong.

From Tarboro, North Carolina: Cold case investigators offer $15K reward in case of missing Edgecombe County man. The missing man, Stephen Frederick MacGray, has been missing for nearly a year — not quite long enough to be eligible for listing on the Charley Project.

From San Luis Obispo, California: This coach last saw his mother in Woodland in 1979; his DNA helped find her body. About the Dolores Wulff case; she disappeared in 1979 and was identified recently.

From Texas: Congressmen introduce bipartisan missing persons bill.

From Valdosta, Georgia: Valdosta police still seek missing mother, son. This is the disappearance of three-year-old Brandon Lee Wade and his mom, Paula, eighteen years ago.

From Mobile, Alabama: Cold Case Mystery: Mobile mother missing for 20 years. That’s Lisa Ann Pierce, who went missing in 2000.

From Battle Creek, Michigan: Amber Griffin remains missing after months of failed searches around Battle Creek. She’s been missing since June.

From Montana: Officials discuss missing persons cases in Montana national parks.

From San Luis Obispo, California: Can new info help solve the case of missing college student Kristin Smart? Also: Was the beeping in a backyard coming from Kristin Smart’s watch? Kristin disappeared in 1996; it’s one of those cases where it’s pretty obvious what must have happened but the cops are having a hard time proving it.

From the Crow Indian Reservation in Montana: BIA, FBI Seeking Missing Child Mildred Old Crow. I added her the other day.

From Sonora, Mexico: Sonora mayor’s gift to mothers of missing persons: shovels and buckets.

    Hey Meaghan! Unrelated to this post but after looking at the profile for Lisa Ann Myers Neugent I was googling the bf/ main suspect, Frank, and it looks like he is now deceased (died Feb 2020).

    The birthday on his obit matches an article, link copied below, about Lisa’s case / Frank (it’s off by 2 years but 10/30). I figured I’d mention it since her profile says authorities are searching for him/ what he might be driving. Feel free to delete this comment if it’s unhelpful

    You’re doing important work here. People are way more likely to see this in a social media forum or a blog than a half remembered spot on the news where there’s so much thrown at you at one time. Great job 🙂

    I was surprised that in a couple of cases from Will County, that there is no pictures of the missing person. I wonder if the family did not take pictures of their loved one, at a some family function over the years.

    I have a picture of my late half-sister visiting the grave of our grandfather and his parents in Greenwood Cemetery.

      Recently there was a news article about the disappearance of a two-year-old boy named Detrez Green, back in 2017. He had never been found and there is no photo available of him. It’s so hard to believe that in the age of ubiquitous camera phones, a child could reach the age of two without anyone ever taking a photo.

        How sad it is.

    I agree. I have a picture of a little lady who was 2 on July 23rd. They all cute at that age and yet there is no photo of him.

    Also, in regards to Sarah Avon, there was some digging on the property that once belonged to a man. However, no remains were found. However, he supposedly made a death bed confession in Arkansss.

    There are some who believe that authorities did not search the right parts of the property. The Billy Redden also is deceased. But, his name does not appear in the articles I read.
