Magi and John Bish

On the morning of June 27, 2000 Magi Bish drove her 16-year-old daughter, Molly, to her Life Guard post at a pond in rural western Massachusetts. When swimmers arrived minutes later, the only traces of Molly were her towel, lunch, water bottle, sandals, a police radio and an open first aid kit. It soon became apparent that Molly was the victim of abduction by a predator. After three years, the extensive search for Molly came to a heartbreaking end; Molly's remains were found on a remote wooded hill side just 5 miles from where she had been abducted and 2 1/2 miles from her home. There are suspects and a Grand Jury has been appointed. As of yet no arrests have been made.

Within months of Molly's disappearance, Magi and John Bish established the Molly Bish Foundation and Life Guards Center, an organization that is devoted to promoting child safety through education and prevention. To date, the foundation has distributed over 125,000 complimentary child identification kits that contain a photograph and professional fingerprints that can be used to help locate a missing child. In addition to hosting child safety events at local schools, day care centers and community sponsored events, Magi and John established the first Missing Children's Day vigil in Massachusetts. Magi and John are members of Team Hope, AMECO, serve on the Board of Directors of RadKids and have received innumerable commendations.
