"On the Road To Remember Tour" Rally for Bianca!

On August 28, 2008 from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. Bianca's friends and family will be hosting a rally stop for the On The Road To Remember Tour. This will take place under her billboard on Highway 79 at the 4-way stop in Foley, Missouri. We are so excited to be part of this event. We will have area police departments sharing info about missing people in the St. Louis, St. Charles, and Lincoln County areas, as well as some families representing their missing children. We will be hosting an attendance raffle with gifts donated from local businesses, free hot dogs, hamburgers, cotton candy, and snow cones. Ed Schieffer, our state representative will be attending, saying a few words. We are hoping to have a child I.D. program along with public safety info. Of course the main attraction will be The On The Road To Remember Tour Bus that should pull in around 5:30.

After the event please log back to see the pictures we will post.


On Monday, August 11, 2008, the first Missouri Police Department to participate with the Picture Them Home Campaign sponsored Bianca's picture on one of their police cars. The Carl Junction, MO. Police Department sponsored 12 missing children on six police cars using the program founded by the Morgan Nick Foundation. The Police Chief mentioned during his short announcement that he was surfing the Internet and ran across the You-Tube video about the Clarksville, Arkansas police department initiating and implementing the Picture Them Home campaign. After watching this video he believed that his department not only could but should help bring these children home. He was able to gather community support and donations to help with the expenses. My friend Ginny and I made the five hour trip from my home to let the Chief know how important his decision to work with this program is to all parents of missing children, and especially to Bianca and I. I was also informed that a few other police departments have jumped on board and FIVE children have already been recovered since the programs inception at Clarksville, Arkansas in May 2008. I knew this was going to work!! Again I implore everyone reading this to please send this information to your local law enforcement agency and help us to find our children!
