CUE Center for Missing Persons
13th Annual National Conference
March 6, 2017, Wilmington, NC……”Embracing Dignity and Courage” is the theme for the 13th Annual National Missing Persons Conference sponsored by CUE Center for Missing Persons in Wilmington, North Carolina. The conference will be held March 15-18th at the Holiday Inn, 5032 Market Street, Wilmington, NC. The four-day event will focus on improving communication between families and agencies, exchanging ideas, and creating a unified support system for victims left behind.
The National Missing Persons Conference is open to all who have an interest in supporting the primary cause of locating missing persons including search and rescue groups. In addition, the Conference is open to those who support victims of homicide, intimate partner violence and other crimes against both adults and youth. Advocates from law enforcement, victims' assistance, youth groups, families of the missing and anyone with an interest in learning how they, too, can help are welcome. Registration is now open.

The conference is both educational and informative, presenting cutting edge technology and ideas to make a difference in the way missing persons’ cases are handled. "Through classes and presentations by those who are considered experts in their fields, attendees come away with a better understanding of the issues and the solutions," says CUE Founder Monica Caison. For the full schedule of speakers and instructors refer to the agenda attached. (LINK TO AGENDA)
Each year on Saturday evening, attendees are transported to The Wilmington Convention Center for the Annual Candlelight Vigil honoring all those who are still among the missing. The vigil starts at 7:30pm. As part of the highly touching ceremony, “Keeper of the Flame”awards are presented to law enforcement, business leaders, organizations, media networks, search personnel and volunteers who have risen above their daily duties to aid those in distress.
