Daily Point of Light #4027, Cynthia Caron
Posted by Points of Light Institute
As the President and Founder of LostNMissing, Inc., Cynthia Caron volunteers 12 hours each day to guide families of missing people as soon as their loved one goes missing. She seamlessly handles all the media, marketing and posting of information. Cynthia works directly with law enforcement, acting as a representative for the families. She also notifies the public of the missing person through the community by social networking. By stepping in and handling the media relations, this allows the families to focus on recovering their loved ones. Since it’s incorporation, LostNMissing has helped recover a number of missing teenagers as well as adults. Unlike other similar organizations, LostNMissing fully utilizes all social networking sites. And with the help of her many followers, the missing alerts are distributed throughout the Internet. Cynthia’s compassion is the driving force of the success of her organization. She is convinced that thinking outside the traditional channels of notifying the public of missing person information is what is setting her organization apart and truly making a difference in families’ lives. Because her organization is relatively small, it is able to provide a timely and personalized response to each family. Under her leadership, Cynthia’s organization connects newly missing families with families who have already “walked in their shoes” through the experience of having a loved one missing. Cynthia was also one of the top ten “Top Ultimate Volunteer” in America for the ABC show, “The View.” Cynthia has channeled her natural compassion to be a formidable force in the mission of doing good for others and her hard work and devotion is worthy of this recognition.
