Missing Children and Take 25 Campaign

May 25th is National Missing Children's Day . Events are being scheduled across the country to raise awareness about the importance of safety and as a reminder of our nation's missing children . The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children's Take 25 Campaign asks parents to take 25 minutes of their day to talk to your kids about safety.


National Missing Children's Day is around the corner. It's a perfect opportunity for law enforcement, public servants, advocates and volunteers to give back to the community. We all know violent crime (kidnappings, sexual assault, car jacking, murder) are a daily occurrence. Every day thousands of children are reported missing. Many are never found. Many of the kidnappings/abductions end tragically in rape, assault and death.
I'm pleased to announce that we will be hosting one of these events for the 2nd year anniversary of Lilly Aramburo's disappearance, to coincide with National Missing Children's Day in South Florida. Lilly went missing June 1, 2007 from Miami, FL. She is still missing. More about Lilly Aramburo.

More information about the upcoming safety awareness event coming soon. If you'd like to help out with the organizing/promoting of this event, please contact me or leave a comment on this post (or any post). If you're a family member of a missing person and would like your loved one featured on our missing persons wall, please contact me or leave a comment. We'd like to partner up with local residents who care about the safety of our children and loved ones, as well as any like-minded organizations. Together we can make a difference.

If you’d like to connect with me on Twitter my feed is here. Please share this blog to help raise awareness about Lilly and other missing loved ones. Don't forget to Subscribe to the Justice in Miami feed to ensure you don’t miss any news or updates.

Thank You New Mexico Lt. Governor Diane Denish!

I am very happy and proud that New Mexico's Lt. Governor Diane Denish is taking a stand for missing persons and their families. Finally, a politician is doing something positive for the cause. A lot more need to follow her example. But she needs everyone's support to make important changes happen. Watch the video and read all about it below.

Question: Do you think law enforcement should have a national protocol in handling missing person cases? Why or why not?

Denish calls for missing-person alerts
Mesa graves spur call for action




Reporter: Maria Medina
Web Producer: Bill Diven

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The uncertainty linking dozens of missing women with remains unearthed from Albuquerque's west mesa shows more needs to be done when someone disappears, Lt. Gov. Diane Denish said Tuesday.

"Let's be frank about this," Denish told KRQE News 13. "This is mostly women who go missing and are not found, and that's really what caught my attention.

"I grieve along with all the other people in New Mexico not just for the families but for New Mexico. I think we can do better."

She's called a meeting for Friday to bring law enforcement, the media and other organizations together to talk about solutions.

Liz Pérez said she could've used more help when her daughter-in-law went missing. Nearly eight years ago Darlene Trujillo dropped her son off with Perez.

She said she was going on a quick trip to Arizona, but she never returned.

"(The police) said that they would file a missing persons report but that they couldn't really do nothing on it because Darlene was over 18 years old," Pérez said.

Trujillo is not one of the four women who investigators have identified so far from the west mesa graves. Forensics experts have said the remains are those of Victoria Chavez, Cinnamon Elks, Julie Nieto and Michelle Valdez.

All four young women disappeared in 2004, and all shared trouble in their lives involving drugs and prostitution. Eight sets of skeletal remains have yet to be identified, and investigators have yet to name any prime suspects in the case.

Denish said she doesn't want to hear about limitations adding that she thinks a lot more can and should be done to publicize missing persons cases quickly.

Please pay close attention to the posters and photographs of missing children. Be aware and stay vigilant. You never know when your observation could make a difference. A missing child is everyone's responsibility. It's a community issue.

  • Use age-appropriate activities to teach children ages 5 to 17 how to stay safer on the Internet with http://www.netsmartz.org/.
  • Take 25 minutes to teach your children about safety (online and off). Minutes of prevention can make a huge impact in the life of a child.
