Vanished: When Someone Goes Missing!
July 15, 2010
Hosted by Francie Koehler, CPI, CCDI
What must it be like to have a missing family member - - a missing daughter, a missing son, a missing sister? What is it like not to know what happened - - a person you loved who just vanished into thin air? You look twice every time you drive down the street and see someone with the same build and the same color hair. With each passing year, you imagine what they look like, if they have changed, if they are ok . . . or not. You never give up hope! Join us in talking with Molly's Bish's sister, Heather. Sixteen-year-old Molly went missing 10 years ago from Warren, MA where she was working as a life guard. Hear from Teresa Ahern whose nineteen-year-old daughter, Kyla Porter, disappeared from Holiday, Florida. Tune in as Massachusetts private investigator Tom Shamshak, a missing person's specialist talks with these family members and PI's Declassified about investigating and resolving cases like the cases involving Molly and Teresa.
