A national missing persons tour makes a stop in the Midland Empire.

The nationwide road tour, called ‘On the Road to Remember,’ was created to generate new interest in cold cases of missing people throughout the nation.

“It gives you hope. It gives you a sense that my son hasn’t been forgotten,” says missing person, Branson Perry’s mother, Becky Klino.”

After many years, missing persons and homicide cases seem to fade from the public’s radar, but for families and friends who are left behind, the nightmare continues every minute of every day.

For Cue Center Executive Dir., Monica Caison, who’s leading the caravan of volunteers, the tour is about hope.

“We just hope that through our awareness campaign we’re doing cross country, someone will come forward and give information to investigators,” she says.

‘On the Road to Remember’ left Wilmington, North Carolina August 21 and will travel more than 5,000 miles through 17 states to raise public awareness.

Through it, hundreds of volunteers will take part in various legs of the tour, which includes 30 rally stops, like the one Friday in Craig, where families with missing loved ones just want to keep hope alive.

To date, the Cue Center, the tour’s sponsor, has assisted more than 8,000 families in need.

The Cue Center is supported entirely by donations and active volunteers.
