But this weekend, Cuyahoga County will host Missing Persons Day downtown, which will concentrate the local attention of both residents and leaders once again on this most harrowing and abstract of problems.
The public event will take place from noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday at 1 West Lakeside Drive. A memorial service and dove release will begin at 1 p.m. Here's a quick rundown of the event's features:
- Family members can submit DNA reference samples and create online profiles
- Officers will be available to take tips on old cases and conduct interviews on new cases
- Community organizations will be on hand to provide resources
