Mystery of missing Kildare man
Monday, 11 February 2002
The Irish Examiner reported the story of John Rowan (34), originally from Monasterevin, Co. Kildare, who left his wife Caroline and their two children at the family home in Jacksonville, Florida, on February 23 last year and hasn’t been seen since. His van was found near Orlando airport a month later but the family believe that he has been murdered. Mr Rowan had his own construction business and what baffles the family is that ten months before he disappeared he removed his wife and children as beneficiaries of a $3m life insurance policy and inserted the names of his two former business partners, Ray and Mike Itani. The Itanis refuse to discuss the matter with the police.

Trenton is biracial; he is Asian and white.

After 2 years, search slows for Leesburg’s Trenton Duckett

“We look into all kinds [of leads], but psychics and ‘I-think-I-might-have-seen-him-here-or-on-TV,’ that’s the type we’ve been getting for about the last year or so,” Leesburg police Maj. Steve Rockefeller said.

What would you do if Trenton was your child?

The 2008 Olympics

August 10, 2008

As the 2008 Olympic games begin, do you find yourself asking a simple question about missing children? Why, with all the coverage, is there not one single PSA covering a missing child; not even Madeleine McCann arguably the most recognized missing child worldwide?

The NCMEC which recieves over $35 million annually from the Department of Justice hasn’t made any appeals nor has the Find Madeleine website (which no longer publishes the exact number of millions they have received). 

The CAC Charities, through the generosity of our sponsors and individuals, did air a show in Jacksonville, Florida on Comcast 29 Saturday at 8:00 p.m. about missing children. Unfortunately it was in the same time slot as the Olympic games and the first pre-season game for the Jacksonville Jaguars. However the Jaguars did graciously allow us to have a booth at the Pepsi Plaza and will show a PSA about child safety, missing children and the Child Alert Center on the stadium jumbotron during home games.

When seconds count

July 23, 2008

At the Child Alert Center, parents can register and securely store their children’s descriptive information and photographs annually for less than the cost of a typical flash drive. In the event the child goes missing the parent or police would notify their call center. A poster would be created in minutes and distributed regardless of the parents physical location. There would be no need to search for a child id kit, photographs, flash drives or anything but the missing child.

The Pasco Sheriff’s Office plans to launch a program soon, Operation Find Me, to give away USB flash drives to parents of youngsters, Public Information Director Kevin Doll confirms.

Vital information, photos and other files can be transferred onto the USB flash drive, also called thumb drives, which plug into any computer.
