Thank You New Mexico Lt. Governor Diane Denish!

I am very happy and proud that New Mexico’s Lt. Governor Diane Denish is taking a stand for missing persons and their families. Finally, a politician is doing something positive for the cause. A lot more need to follow her example. But she needs everyone’s support to make important changes happen. Watch the video and read all about it below.

Question: Do you think law enforcement should have a national protocol in handling missing person cases? Why or why not?

Denish calls for missing-person alerts
Mesa graves spur call for action

Reporter: Maria Medina

Web Producer: Bill Diven

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The uncertainty linking dozens of missing women with remains unearthed from Albuquerque’s west mesa shows more needs to be done when someone disappears, Lt. Gov. Diane Denish said Tuesday.

“Let’s be frank about this,” Denish told KRQE News 13. “This is mostly women who go missing and are not found, and that’s really what caught my attention.

“I grieve along with all the other people in New Mexico not just for the families but for New Mexico. I think we can do better.”

She’s called a meeting for Friday to bring law enforcement, the media and other organizations together to talk about solutions.

Liz Pérez said she could’ve used more help when her daughter-in-law went missing. Nearly eight years ago Darlene Trujillo dropped her son off with Perez.

She said she was going on a quick trip to Arizona, but she never returned.

“(The police) said that they would file a missing persons report but that they couldn’t really do nothing on it because Darlene was over 18 years old,” Pérez said.

Trujillo is not one of the four women who investigators have identified so far from the west mesa graves. Forensics experts have said the remains are those of Victoria Chavez, Cinnamon Elks, Julie Nieto and Michelle Valdez.

All four young women disappeared in 2004, and all shared trouble in their lives involving drugs and prostitution. Eight sets of skeletal remains have yet to be identified, and investigators have yet to name any prime suspects in the case.

Denish said she doesn’t want to hear about limitations adding that she thinks a lot more can and should be done to publicize missing persons cases quickly.

  • Search the National Sex Offender Public Registry at www.nsopr.gov.
  • Use age-appropriate activities to teach children ages 5 to 17 how to stay safer on the Internet with http://www.netsmartz.org/.
  • Take 25 minutes to teach your children about safety (online and off). Minutes of prevention can make a huge impact in the life of a child.

Austin Davis Missing from Jacksonville, FL Since June 2007

austin davis flyer
Michael “Austin” Davis, age 26, has been missing from the Argyle area of Jacksonville, Florida since June 26, 2007. He was suffering from depression. It is devastating when a loved one goes missing. But to learn about the purchase of a shot gun? Not easy to deal with at all. Let’s hope someone comes forward with information. Take a look at the video below. It’s Austin’s sister, Anita describing the circumstances surrounding Austin’s disappearance.
Austin Davis
Last Seen June 26th, 2007
DOB: 04/24/81
Height 5′ 8″ / Weight 180 lbs.
Brown Hair/ Blue Eyes
Scar on right cheek / Dimples Jacksonville, FL
Jacksonville, FL, October 18, 2007 – Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has released information regarding the disappearance of Michael “Austin” Davis, 26, from his Westside home on the morning 0f June 26, 2007.

“We now know,” said Anita Sullivan, sister of the missing man, “that Austin’s mysterious taxi ride ended at Jax Jewelry and Pawn Shop at the intersection of 103rd Street and Blanding Boulevard around 12:30pm on June 26th.

JSO has confirmed Austin bought a shotgun there and the clerk said he put the gun in a duffle bag and left the shop on foot. “We have searched the area but found nothing”. “The pawn shop clerk said the gun barrel was protruding from the duffle bag when he left the shop. As busy as that area is midday, we think it is likely someone saw him and would remember something as unusual as a young man walking on Blanding or 103rd with a gun in a duffel bag”, the missing man’s sister said.
“We are hopeful someone will come forward, possibly with information regarding his direction of travel and help us target other areas to search”, Anita Sullivan said.
Anyone who may have seen a man walking with a duffle bag on the afternoon of Tuesday, June 26 in the area of Blanding Bvd. and 103rd Street, which includes Wesconnett Blvd., Timuquana Road, Jammes, and surrounding areas, is urged to step forward.
He may have been walking in any direction, and may have been seen on side roads up to several miles away from the intersection. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.


IF SEEN Please Contact:
JSO Missing Persons Unit 904.630.2627
Family: 904.446.0740

For the full story please visit the Find Austin Davis Website.

This case pulls at my heart strings because Austin disappeared in June 2007, just like Lilly. The family has been waiting for answers as long as we have. The month of June will never be the same for us.

National DataBase for Missing and Unidentified Persons NamUs

Is your missing loved one registered in the The NamUs Database?

The Justice Department has unveiled a computer database that will help families locate the bodies of lost loved ones. Families, law enforcement agencies, medical examiners and coroners, victim advocates, and the general public are encouraged to register their missing loved ones with The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs), the first national repository for missing persons and unidentified decedent records. NamUs consists of two databases that anyone can search. The Justice Department hopes that law enforcement officials and the public will use the databases to share information to solve cases.Feb 2009
Let’s just hope law enforcement start to use it. Families deserve closure.

The Search for Missing UF Student Tiffany Sessions

February 9, 1989, 20 year old University of Florida student, Tiffany Sessions told her roommate she was going for a jog and never returned. That was the last time anyone ever saw Tiffany. This week marked the 20th year anniversary of Tiffany’s disappearance from Gainesville, Florida.
tiffanysessionsposter

Earlier this week, Alachua County Sheriff’s Office announced new leads in the case. Tiffany’s father, Patrick Sessions, a Miami resident and dedicated missing children advocate told the Miami Herald he does not expect to find Tiffany alive. He just wants closure.

The Sessions Family launched the “Official Tiffany Sessions” Website, http://tiffanysessions.com/. Anyone with information can leave an anonymous tip. It’s also a resource for other families coping with the disappearance of a loved one.

The Sessions family is offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the remains of Tiffany Sessions and the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for her abduction. Anyone with information about Tiffany’s disappearance should call Detective Bob Dean at the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office at (352) 367-4161. Callers can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest by calling Crime Stoppers at 372-STOP (7867). Anonymous tips can be left on the web site at http://www.alachuasheriff.org. Please help this family get closure.

One of the most devastating events that can happen to a family is the disappearance of a child. Can you imagine the agony this family has suffered for 20 long years? Think about it. Almost a lifetime of not knowing what happened to your child, your flesh and blood! The not knowing is simply torturous. If you know anything at all about Tiffany’s disappearance, please come forward and help this family get the answers they’ve been waiting for.

In most likelihood, Tiffany is probably gone. Her family may never have the chance to see her smiling face and get to hold her in their arms again. But her name and memory lives on.

Last year, the Florida Legislature passed Senate Bill 502, the “Jennifer Kesse and Tiffany Sessions Missing Persons Act.” Governor Charlie Crist signed the bill, which broadens the authority of FDLE’s Missing Endangered Persons Information Clearinghouse to provide assistance on investigations involving missing adults younger than 26 and missing adults age 26 and older who are suspected by law enforcement to be in danger.

“In addition, the Act requires that local law enforcement authorities transmit missing child and adult reports to the state and federal criminal databases within two hours of receiving the report. The local law enforcement agency investigating the case must also attempt to obtain a DNA sample if the child or adult has been missing for more than 90 days. These DNA profiles will be analyzed and uploaded into the FBI’s National DNA Index System and continuously searched against unidentified human remains.”

What a huge leap for missing persons in my hometown state of Florida! Just a year ago, if someone over 18 went missing, law enforcement could easily say the missing person has every right to disappear. The law didn’t require police to do much. Having dealt with the disappearance of my friend, Lilly Aramburo, I can tell you that the Jennifer Kesse and Tiffany Sessions Missing Persons Act is of immense benefit to missing persons! And an ode to Tiffany.

The 17 Year Search for Abducted Child Sigourney Chisholm

Sigourney Teresa Chisholm is missing. She was abducted by her mother, Patricia O’Byrne May 1993. Patricia is wanted for child abduction. Sigourney is 17 now. Her grief-stricken Dad, Joe Chisholm, has been searching for his daughter for 17 long, painful years. But he’s not giving up!

Sigourney Chisholm Poster
Age-enhanced

MissingSigourney (6) copy

From Joe Chisholm’s blog:

“Sigourney was abducted by her non-custodial mother, Patricia Joan O’Byrne, on May 17, 1993 from Toronto, Ontario. Patricia, also goes by the name Trish or may be using an alias. On the 15th of May 1993, following a custody dispute with the father, O’Byrne left a message stating that she was leaving the country with her daughter, Sigourney. Patricia is wanted on charges of child abduction; there is a warrant for Patricia’s arrest. Abduction is a crime, even if the child is your own. The only consideration of the Chisholm family now, however, is to be reacquainted with Sigourney. The family treats this not as a legal or criminal matter, but as a family dispute – a solvable family dispute. They have been traced to London, Tunbridge Wells, Kent and Devon. It is believed they could be in Spain now.”

Lilly Aramburo and Missing Minorities Campaign

Dear friends, I was recently surprised to find Lilly Aramburo listed on a site called Missing Minorities Campaign. How awesome! It’s a great site and very helpful for the benefit of missing minorities. As we all know, missing minorities rarely make the news. And if they do, they don’t receive the same type of in depth coverage. (God knows how hard I’ve tried to get media coverage for Lilly!) But with sites like Missing Minorities Campaign and others using the internet to advocate for missing people, the more eyes we have looking out for our loved ones and the better chances we have of finding them.

Although most of us live very busy, sometimes hectic lives, a little time and effort goes a long way. You’d be surprised to know how easy it is to help. As I always do when I find a website, blog or organization doing good works, I stumbled their site, bookmarked it and shared it on Twitter and a few other networking sites and aggregators like Friendfeed. And it really helps! After reading the stories of the missing people on the Missing Minorities site and others, it’s very helpful to DIGG or STUMBLE the story or share on whatever social network and news submission sites you use. I joined their community, as well. After all, that’s what social networking is all about: community.

One last thing, if you use Twitter, please follow the Missing Minorities Campaign.

Appeal to Miami Residents For Info in the Possible Homicide of Lilly Aramburo

In 6 months, it will mark the 2nd year anniversary since Lilly Aramburo was last seen by family and friends. The night was June 1, 2007, at approximately 2am. She walked out of her live-in boyfriend’s condo after a heated argument and has never been seen alive since.
Lilly Aramburo Texas Equusearch Flyer
Lilly’s family is asking the public for help. If you know anything at all or have information regarding the disappearance of Lucely “Lilly” Aramburo, Lilly’s mother, family and friends urge you to contact Miami Dade Police at 305-418-7200 or Crime Stoppers at (305)471-8477. (You can get a cash reward of up to $1000!) It offers complete anonymity. Lilly may have walked to the bus stop or to the Metrorail Station which is very near to Dadeland Mall. She may have traveled to the Coconut Grove area.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO LILLY?
Justice for Missing mother Lilly Aramburo

MISSING Lilly Aramburo

Chances are you’ve probably never met Lilly but if you did, you would understand why we’re so determined to find her. Lilly was a girl of peace, a young mother who loved her baby boy very much. She was a humble person and good friend who touched everyone she met with her beautiful smile. She had the energy of a small child. It is a shame that this had to happen. And that her disappearance has remained unnoticed, while the media arbitrarily picks and chooses who they find important.

She loved music, and although she loved rock, oldies were secretly her favorite songs. She loved to read and write in her journals, but refused to learn computers. She was a very simple girl, who shopped at vintage stores, and hardly ever wore much make up. The term earth girl, comes to mind when I think of her. And pixie, as well. People would often confuse her with being a teenager because she looked so damn young. Lily was tough as steel, both emotionally and physically. Once she fell off a 2nd story building at the University of Miami campus. She went to the hospital and walked out, took the brace off and kept going, because she had to be at work the next day.

When she was pregnant with her son (now 2 years old), she glowed. It was the most amazing time in her life. The loveliest I had ever seen her. Her skin looked a golden olive, and her almond shaped eyes, glistened. I could see life in her. And she was truly happy and hopeful, looking forward to the birth of her son.

I thought she would make it. She began taking prenatal yoga, went back to being a vegetarian, and was dedicated to meditating and praying a lot. We had no idea of what was to come. Almost 2 years later, and we’re still awaiting answers. Every day Lilly’s mother wakes up thinking about Lilly and what could have been. It must be so painful for her to raise her grandson, Lilly’s 2 year old son, while praying for the day when Lilly is found and finally put to rest.

We have reason to believe Lilly is a victim of homicide but many questions remain unanswered. And that is why we’re asking for your help.

We’re currently trying to piece together Lilly’s last movements. Anyone with information which could assist police with their investigations should immediately contact Miami Dade Police at 305-418-7200 or Crime Stoppers at (305)471-8477.

If you feel compelled to help find Lilly Aramburo, there are many ways you can help. Please do so by doing one or more of the following:

Lily’s case has received very little media coverage. So far, the only article published about Lilly’s disappearance was in the Miami New Times last September. As you can see, Nancy Grace was kind enough to feature a Case Alert about Lilly, as well. Can you help us get media coverage for Lilly? Contact Nancy Grace and ask her to investigate Lilly’s possible homicide. We’d like Lilly to be featured on local media stations in Miami. Please let us know if you can help with this. Drop me a line or leave a comment on this post.

Lilly’s family and friends are grateful for your prayers and continued support. Let’s bring resolution to this grieving family.

Tribute to Lilly Aramburo

There’s never a day where thoughts of Lilly are far away. Listened to some of her favorite songs by the Magnetic Fields today… Somehow makes me feel better when I’m down. I remember the times we sat in my car as I drove her home, listening to music. She loved music. I could see her sitting next to me, smiling. As a tribute to Lilly’s loving memory, here are a few of her favorite songs. The ones I listen to and reminisce…

The Magnetic Fields – All My Little Words

The Magnetic Fields – The One You Really Love

Sublime – Waiting For my Ruca

RIP Lilly Aramburo. Justice will be done. Words can’t describe how much we love you and miss you! xoxo

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

On behalf of Lilly Aramburo’s family and friends, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of holidays. We’d like to thank you for all your kindness and support. We appreciate all your prayers for Lilly and wish you and your loved ones a safe and joyous holiday.

If you’re planning a holiday donation, please don’t forget the missing. A few charities in special need of funding which we recommend supporting are:
National Center for Missing Adults (NCMA)
Project Jason

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.

Prayers for Missing Mother Lilly Aramburo

True peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice. Martin Luther King, Jr

I spent the day yesterday with my favorite boy in the world…Lilly Aramburo’s 2 year old son, Palden:-) Lilly’s mother, Lucely, invited me over to their new place, along with a few of Lilly’s old friends from school. I had a lovely time. It was amazing to see how much her little boy has learned to talk. He took me by the hand and showed me his room and all his toys. He walked me over to a chest, lifted the top and showed me what was inside…Lilly’s boots and shoes…and he said “gone…gone”. He broke my heart in two. Although, he was a baby when he last saw his mother, Lilly, (it seems to me) her memory is still very much alive in his mind.

The following prayer is dedicated to Lilly and all missing loved ones. May they be in peace, free from all harm and suffering. May they be found and may justice prevail.

Prayer to Find What Is Lost
St. Anthony, when you prayed, your stolen book of prayers was given back to you. Pray now for all of us who have lost things precious and dear. Pray for all who have lost faith, hope or the friendship of God. Pray for us who have lost friends or relatives by death. Pray for all who have lost peace of mind or spirit. Pray that we may be given new hope, new faith, new love. Pray that lost things, needful and helpful to us, may be returned to our keeping. Or, if we must continue in our loss, pray that we may be given Christ’s comfort and peace.

Amen.

Yet Another Holiday Without Lilly – An Update

This will be our 2nd holiday without Lilly Aramburo. The feeling of great loss and grieving hasn’t stopped since her disappearance but Christmas is especially arduous. Emotions are raw. Most of Lily’s family is processing through this the same way we would with a death, except there’s no closure because Lilly’s body has not been found.

In the midst of all this suffering, there has been some progress though. Lilly’s mother, Lucely, requested a meeting with Captain Janna L. Bolinger-Heller from Miami Dade Police Department, she kindly agreed. Lucely, Joe Carrillo (private investigator), and I met with the Captain and Lieutenant Normando Gregorisch yesterday. It was our first time meeting Captain Heller in person, as well as Lieutenant Gregorisch. I must say, it was a very positive meeting. Obviously, I can’t disclose any details since it involves an open investigation. The last thing I want is to compromise the case and let violent criminals get away with murdering my friend. If all goes well, and everyone keeps to their word, I have no doubt…the truth will come out and this case will finally be transferred to homicide.

Please light a candle and say a prayer for Lilly and her family.

Lilly Aramburo, Social Media and How YOU can Help!

lilly-aramburo

“Sometimes, when one person is missing, the whole world seems depopulated.” -Lamartine

We depend on social networking sites to assist in raising awareness for Lilly Aramburo and missing people.  If you have a loved one that’s missing, or if you’d like to help the cause, please join this Missing Persons group on Flickr. The group is focused on missing persons in the United States. Every member is encouraged to upload pictures of missing loved ones (as long as they disappeared within the US). This is a good idea for several aspects. Many people use Flickr and it’s a very effective way of raising awareness for the missing.

Please join us in the Missing Persons Friendfeed Room.  Members post links to pictures, articles, anything that has to do with missing people (Amber Alerts, abductions, kidnapping, runaways, etc).  If you’re a social media lover, be sure to join us on various sites across the web like Care2.com and Mixx.com. Please add Missing Lilly Aramburo as a friend on myspace and join her cause on Facebook. These are just a few things you can do to help.

This is one of my absolute favorite pictures of Lilly (above).  It’s how I remember my friend. Smiling, laughing, enjoying LIFE.  Since Lilly’s disappearance, on June 1, 2007, life has not been the same.  Lily’s mother lives in constant agony, waiting for news about her daughter. It’s not easy having to raise her grandson under such difficult circumstances . With each day, Lilly’s son (now 2 years old) slowly loses precious memories of his mother. He was only 9 months old, last time he was held in her warm and loving embrace. With every new picture, sadness tends to overcome me. And all I’m left with are questions. After all this time, I believe her little boy and family, deserve answers.  She absolutely did NOT willingly walk away from her son and her life.  She’d never allow so much time to pass without a phone call or checking in on her son. Someone took her from us. And many of us will not rest until she is brought back home and justice is served for Lilly Aramburo.

You can help by making a quick phone call to the US Attorney’s Office at 305-530-7679. It appears the US Attorneys office are the only ones who can properly investigate this case. Also, please continue sending emails to Governor Charlie Crist and media. It makes no sense that after all this time, not ONE article has been written about Lilly’s case in local newspapers like The Miami Herald or her picture displayed by local news channels. It’s not due to lack of effort, I testify to that.

Someone out there knows what happened to Lilly. I urge you to contact the detective or call the tip line at 305-471-TIPS.  You can remain anonymous if need be. Just pick up the phone and make the phone call, please! No matter how small a detail, no matter how silly you think it may be, your information could help solve this mystery. It’s been hell for Lilly’s family and friends. Please help bring Lilly back home. Immediately contact MDPD at 305-418-7245 or call the tip line at 305-471-TIPS, if you know anything at all about Lilly Aramburo’s disappearance.

Here’s a direct statement to her perpetrator, YOUR CONSCIOUS MUST BE KILLING YOU!

Please keep Lilly Aramburo and her family in your prayers.
