Tomorrow is Missing Monday: Please help those who help find the missing

Just to be sure I didn't forget to make my Missing Monday post (like I did last month), I figured I'd prep and post in advance. As I started to look for a case for this month, I found out that the National Center for Missing Adults (NCMA) is in danger of losing funding because the HR 2103 is languishing in subcommittee. HR 2103 authorizes the Attorney General to provide grants for organizations that help locate missing adults. If this bill is not signed into law the NCMA stands to lose $4 M in funding they receive on an annual basis - this is no small chunk of change for an organization that played a key role to help locate missing victims of Hurricane Katrina (almost a year later, the DOJ hasn't yet reimbursed them the $200,000 they promised for the owrk they did) as well as helping families of other missing adults.

Kelly Jowlkowski of Project Jason has posted her letter to the President requesting support and action on this bill. Please contact your respresentatives to request they do their part to ensure the government finally takes positive action on this bill.
