I became involved in the Missing Persons area more than seventeen years ago after the abduction of Stacy, our youngest daughter. Stacy was 18 years old when she disappeared from a friend's house along with her friend, Suzie Streeter, and Suzie's mother Sherill Levitt on June 7, 1992. Stacy left our house to go to graduation parties at several friends' houses. A group planned excursion to Branson's White Water was planned for that day. She was to call when they left for Branson, after spending the night with her friend, Janelle. At the last moment she decided to spend the night with Suzie. She hadn't spent the night with her for almost eight years. Sometime between the hours of 3:00 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. on June 7, 1992, Stacy, Suzie and her mother Sherill vanished. Their purses, cars and all of their belongings were still at the house. After many leads and many searches, they are still missing. The Springfield, Missouri Police Department, together with the Greene County Sheriff Department, Highway Patrol and FBI, has followed leads across the nation and are still no further in finding out who took them out of the house. Although the families of Suzie and Sherill have legally declared them dead, I cannot bear the thought of doing that. If there is one chance that she is still alive, I choose to call her missing and hope that some day she will be back. Law enforcement says Stacy was at the wrong place at the wrong time! She was taken along with whoever planned to take Suzie or Sherill. It is almost impossible to believe that she has been missing for so many years, because to us it seems like yesterday. Wasn't it yesterday that she left our house after graduating from Kickapoo High School, that long hair flowing back below her waist in her new flowered shorts and yellow ribbed shirt? Her niece and nephews miss her and never had the chance to meet the bubbly, loveable, beautiful young woman with high aspirations.

I am very dedicated to the pursuit of finding my daughter and those responsible for her disappearance and assisting other families with similar circumstances. After taking 80 credit hours in Victimology, and many extensive training sessions, I still feel that we fly by the seat of our pants when dealing with crisis situations and missing children and adults.

I am the Co-founder and Executive Director of One Missing Link, Inc., a nonprofit organization doing prevention, education and assisting families in need with missing persons. I am a current member of the Association of Missing and Exploited Children's Organization (AMECO) and served for two terms on the Board of Directors. I served as the co-chairperson of Southwest Missouri Missing Persons Task Force. Having to work full time in an office to pay the bills so that we can keep the organization going can sometimes be overwhelming, but Stacy is our One Missing Link, and we hope to close the links together one day with God's help, as he has her in his hands and is the one caring for her now.
