A miracle has happened. My daughter Marie has been missing since February 3, 2003. She returned home safely after six months on Thursday, June 26, 2003. The reason she returned home is the result of help provided by Outpost for Hope and Maryland Missing.
Outpost for Hope and Maryland Missing made flyers of her, provided volunteers to help post the flyers, helped get me organized, wrote press releases, contacted the media, and even sent a registered letter to the Chief of Police about the negligence to act in a critical missing persons case. They also provided other resources and sites who could help me. Most important, they provided emotional support that I desperately needed. I was taking anti-depressants and seeing two psychologists, but I felt worse every time that I went because, the psychologists encouraged me to forget my daughter and move on. I did not want to forget my daughter and move on.
As a result of all the actions taken by Outpost for Help and Maryland Missing, a person saw Marie's flyer and Marie returned home safely. The Police Department did nothing to support the search for my daughter. I cannot express my gratitude enough to Outpost for Hope and Maryland Missing!
