By Charles Iyoho, News Messenger
Wednesday, December 31, 2008

A report that Beverly Meadows had been spotted shopping at Good Will turned out to be false and Harrison County officials continue their search for the woman who vanished from a Marshall nursing home last Friday.

Ms. Meadows, 49, was last seen at the Community Care Nursing Home, 207 W. Merritt St., on Dec. 26 sometime between 7 and 8 p.m.

A call came over the police scanner Wednesday saying she had been spotted pushing a cart around at Good Will. The person proved not to be Ms. Meadows.

MPD Criminal Investigation Division Lt.

"We do not have any new developments," said Clayton over the phone Wednesday afternoon. "She is still missing. We're following up on every lead we get regarding it."

Ms. Meadows, a white female, is 5-feet 3-inches tall, has grey and black hair and weighs about 240 pounds. She's believed to have left the facility wearing a blue T-shirt with a Harley-Davidson emblem on the front, blue jeans and flip flops. It is unclear whether Ms. Meadows has any personal belongings with her.

According an MPD press release, Ms. Meadows has a medical condition that requires her to take medication daily and she reportedly did not have her medication with her the evening she vanished from the nursing home.

"We're searching tenant houses. We're investigating it," said MPD Sgt. Darryl Griffin in a previous statement. "We're looking for her."

Desperate mother speaks out 
Created: February 18, 2009 05:22 PM   
Modified: February 18, 2009 06:48 PM

The search continues for a woman who disappeared from a nursing home in Marshall, Texas. It happened two months ago and Beverly Meadows' family isn't giving up hope of finding their loved one. Beverly's mother is just hoping and praying someone may have picked up her daughter and is taking care of her, but she fears it could be much worse.

It's a horrible nightmare Liz Lingenfelter is waiting to wake up from. But, unfortunately it's not a dream, it's reality. For the past two months Liz has spent almost every waking hour searching for her missing 49 year old daughter. Beverly disappeared from a Marshall nursing home the day after Christmas. Liz feels like her daughter may have left the nursing home and tried to walk to her home 15 miles away. Mom's gut feeling tells her, Beverly didn't make it there.

Search teams have come up empty handed everywhere they have looked. Meantime, Liz and her husband hope 54 days of passing out hundreds of flyers like these to people and churches across Marshall will help in the search for their missing daughter.

Beverly has been in nursing homes for the past six years. She has asthma, insulin dependent diabetes and emotional problems. The nursing home is offering a $2,500 reward for information that leads to Beverly Meadows.

Mother keeps hope alive for daughter's safe return


By Sandra Cason, News Messenger

Sunday, June 07, 2009

While news of a woman's body being found in a mud pit at a well site earlier this week was, no doubt, a shock to many people, the impact was intensified for Liz Lingenfelter.

"I saw it on the (television) screen and I was shocked," the Shreveport, La., resident said. "Then I said to myself, 'Oh, no, she doesn't have any tattoos.'"

The mother of a woman who has been missing since the early evening hours of Dec. 26, 2008, Ms. Lingenfelter said she reacts to every report that might in any way be related to her daughter.

"Every day you go through shock. You listen to the news; read reports. She's been gone 160 days today," Ms. Lingenfelter said on Thursday.

Beverly Meadows was 48 when she walked away from Community Care Nursing Home, 207 W. Merritt St. in Marshall and would have turned 49 five days later on Dec. 31. She has not been seen since.

A reward of $2,500, offered immediately for information on Ms. Meadows' whereabouts has generated no clues, said Marshall Police Department's Lt. Patrick Clayton.

"No new leads have developed at all," Clayton said, adding that the possibility of the body found at a secluded drilling site on Bill Coleman Road being that of Ms. Meadows was ruled out immediately.

Although the body was initially said to be that of a white female between the ages of 20 and 30, later reports established that the woman was a "light-skinned" African American.

Harrison County Sheriff's Office on Friday identified the body as being Lashun Rena Jenkins, 30, a resident of 701 Atkins Blvd. at the time of her death.

"I think there just hasn't been enough information out there," Ms. Lingenfelter said of her daughter. "I want people to know she's still missing and I'm still looking for her every day. I drive up and down Marshall streets. I'm still reaching out — trying to find her."

Ms. Lingenfelter said she attended a function on Caddo Lake recently. "I wore a black hat out there. I have two pictures of her on that hat that are as big as I could get them.

"I call Detective Clayton so much he recognizes my voice," she added. "It's a constant ache that will not go away. It's agony.

"This Mother's Day was the hardest day I ever got through," Ms. Lingenfelter said. "Last Mother's Day, Beverly had given me a boquet of flowers. I took a picture of her with it and now that picture is on the missing persons Web site.

"All I think of every day is what she did and what she said. I can't think of anybody who would say she was not good. Some say heaven is reserved for a few people and, if it is true that there are only a few slots in heaven, I know she'll get one."

At the time of her disappearance, Ms. Meadows was described as a white female, 5-feet 3-inches tall, having graying black hair and weighing about 240 pounds.

She is believed to have left the facility wearing a blue T-shirt with a Harley-Davidson emblem on the front, blue jeans and flip flops.

Ms. Meadows was said to have suffered from asthma, diabetes and emotional problems and was required to take medication daily. She took no personal belongings or prescription drugs with her when she left the nursing home.

Police initially searched businesses and buildings in the vicinity and while it is not known why Ms. Meadows left the facility, speculation is that she may have determined she would walk to a relative's home in Elysian Fields.

She had no family living in Marshall.

Ms. Lingenfelter said anyone with information on her daughter's whereabouts may contact her at 318-687-3653.

Other contact information is Lt. Clayton, 903-935-4546; Community Care Nursing Home, 903-938-3793; Marshall Police Department, 903-935-4576 or 903-935-4575 after usual business hours.

Information on Ms. Meadows may be found on national missing persons Web sites, including www.helpfindthemissing.org and www.projectjason.org.

Pain, questions unite relatives of missing persons

By Kelsey McKinney •  August 21, 2009

Family members of missing persons gathered Thursday under tents outside the Bossier Civic Center for the CUE Center's On the Road to Remember tour stop in hopes of locating their loved ones.

"This is how we become a family," Judy Downes said of the event during which they communed with others in the same boat and shared stories of their missing loved ones.

After being disappointed with local law enforcement's efforts to located her grandson Michael Pierce, Downes was put in touch with the Community United Effort Center, a nonproft Monica Caison founded about 16 years ago.

"CUE picks up where law enforcement leaves off," states a CUE handout.

With help from the center, Pierce's skeletal remains were found in his Jeep in the Red River in December 2007, five years after he went missing.

"I saw a gap between the time a person is reported missing and the time of recovery, and that gap needed to be filled," Caison explained. She works to provide emotional support for family members and organize efforts to quickly disseminate information about missing persons.

"The only peace it brought me was not having to wonder where he is," Downes said of her grandson as she pointed to the sky. "I'm just hoping these families have a better result."

Downes was referring to relatives of missing persons Clinton Nelson, Gregory Vice Jr. and Beverly Meadows who also attended the tour stop Thursday.

The Cue Center represents a meld of people whose cases started with a missing persons report -- some are still missing, some are resolved after a body is found, and others, with or without a body, are the subject of unsolved homicide cases.

The families are "stuck in this limbo of not knowing anything," said Vice's mother, Kay Kuriger, 51, of Florida.

Vice last was seen March 21, 2000, leaving a house in south Bossier Parish after his truck broke down. His body never has been recovered, but he is the subject of a homicide case that went cold due to lack of evidence, Kuriger said.

"I think it's going to make some people nervous in town who didn't speak up 9½ years ago," Kuriger said of the event Thursday. "I know people know."

Finding her son's body could provide the evidence needed to pursue criminal charges, she believes.

Shreveporter Liz Lindenfelter said she regularly calls hospitals in an attempt to locate her missing daughter.

The 66-year-old said she spoke with daughter Beverly Meadows by phone Dec. 26 but could not reach her when she tried to call again later that evening. Lindenfelter believes her daughter, a 48-year-old with diabetes and other medical problems, wandered from the Marshall, Texas, nursing home where she lived and somehow died in the woods nearby.

Clinton Nelson's mother, Carolyn Johnson, said she too fears the worst but can't keep from hoping her son will be found alive. He was 21 when he went missing Sept. 1, 2006, while visiting a friend in Princeton in Bossier Parish, said Johnson, of South Dakota.

"After so many years, these cases fade from the public's radar," CUE founder Monica Caison says in a prepared statement. "But for the families and friends of the missing, the nightmare continues.

"We are traveling across the country to make sure no case fades from memory ... in an effort to remind everyone these featured cases need a resolution for their families."

The tour will feature 104 cases on its 23 stops through seven states covering about 4,800 miles.

Volunteers released 104 sky blue balloons, one for each missing person featured on the center's sixth annuall cross-country tour, before they left Bossier City for their next stop -- Balmorhea, Texas. Several family members gazed up into the sky and wiped away tears, some apologizing for the unexpected emotions it triggered.

Tour Hopes To Improve Awareness Of Missing Persons

By BETTY WATERS
Staff Writer
8/21/09

HENDERSON -- Shirley Hunt disappeared on a stroll near her Henderson area home and Jimmy Charles Scott vanished from Jacksonville. Brandi Ellen Wells has not been seen since she went to a Longview nightclub.

A caravan of volunteers from the North Carolina-based CUE Center for Missing Persons stopped Thursday at Henderson Plaza Shopping Center for a rally promoting awareness of those and other missing East Texans, as well as thousands of other missing people nationwide.

The center's sixth annual "On the Road to Remember Tour" began Monday and will conclude Aug. 29 after traveling approximately 4,800 miles in seven states, focusing on 104 cold cases of missing persons.

Cold cases are the center's specialty and last year, "We solved a 28-year-old case in St. Petersburg, Fla.," Monica Caison, founder, told people gathered under a tent for the Henderson rally.

She formed the center in 1994 to be an advocate for families of the missing in addition to help investigators with an awareness campaign for their case and also to aid in the search and recovery of missing persons.

The national road tour was spawned in 2004 inspired by the case of a missing North Carolina college student, Leah Roberts, who disappeared on a cross-country trip.

She is still missing, but the center gained national attention for her case.

Addressing the rally, Johnathan Rhodes, criminal investigator for the Rusk County sheriff's office, said he worked during his career on both the Hunt and Scott cases. "These are cases that are trying to criminal investigators. You follow up on every lead you can possibly follow up on. We ask the community, 'if you have any information about any person missing, contact your local authorities,'" Rhodes said.

He added, "Our goal is to resolve these matters and I feel that with perseverance and prayer, we can reach an end for these matters."

Representatives of families of missing persons spoke, some tearfully.

Ms. Hunt's daughter, Kim Vaughn, wept as she told the crowd her mother has been missing two years. "She was the life of our community," Ms. Vaughn said. Her mother often prepared food and helped in any way she could at her church. She had been married 53 years this past week.

"She suffers from Alzheimer's and just walked off," Ms. Vaughn said. Ms. Hunt, 72, disappeared June 19, 2007, on a walk along County Road 454 near Henderson.

"My dad went to get her and she wasn't where she normally was that day. She just vanished without a trace. You watch TV shows and you think it can't happen but it does everyday," Ms. Vaughn said.

Ms. Hunt is 5-4, weighs 120 pounds and has white hair and hazel eyes. She was last seen wearing a long sleeve blue shirt over a white shirt with black trim, light denim culottes, brown "White Mountain" loafer slip-on shoes.

Marie Martin said her brother, Jimmy Scott, disappeared from his house in Jacksonville on Nov. 3, 2001. He was last seen walking down the road near his house, she said.

"We have no leads and don't know anything else. We'll keep looking as long as we have to," Ms. Martin said.

Scott did not show up for his first day of work on a new job.

Scott has tattoos on both arms and right shoulder and a scar on his left arm. He weighs 150 pounds and is 5-11. He has brown eyes and gray hair. He is believed to have been wearing an orange T-shirt with grey stripes and grey or blue shorts at the time of his disappearance.

Scott suffers from depression and asthma and took medication daily.

Ellen Tant described her missing daughter, Brandi Wells as "a very bright, vivacious young lady who wanted to serve her community by becoming a school teacher."

She added, "My daughter did not meet a stranger. She never knew a bad person in her life and never felt that there were bad people out there even though the media talks about. We need to get more awareness out there to the young and to the old alike." Whether the missing are 6 or 12, 22, 38 or 45 years old, they are "still all our children and more awareness needs to be brought to everybody's attention about this," she said.

The only thing families have after a loved one has gone missing awhile is the hopes that somebody's conscience will cause them to speak up so that families do not have to go through the rest of their lives in torture wondering what happened to their loves one, she added.

Ms. Wells, 23, was last seen leaving Graham Central Station nightclub in Longview on Aug. 3, 2006.

When she disappeared, Ms. Wells had just started a new job at the Athens Wal-Mart and was living with a friend in an apartment in Brownsboro while waiting to move into a dorm room at Trinity Valley Community College. She planned to attend TVCC that fall.

Missing for three years, Ms Wells was approximately 4-11 and weighed about 125 pounds. She had shoulder-length blonde hair, blue eyes and was prone to blink excessively. She was last seen wearing a flora-print cream-colored V-neck halter top, rust-colored gaucho pants and black high-heeled sandals.

Ms. Wells drove from Brownsboro to Tyler on Aug. 2, 2006, to visit her mother and planned on going out that evening with her younger sister to an area nightclub. But her sister had fallen asleep on the couch and Ms. Wells decided to go without her. Surveillance video at Graham Central Station show her entering and leaving the nightclub alone.

She disappeared on the morning of Aug. 3, 2006. Her car, a black four-door Pontiac Grand Prix, was found abandoned on the westbound shoulder of Interstate 20 near mile marker 591 between Longview and Tyler. There were no signs of foul play at the scene.

Tammy Lofton said her sister Beverly Meadows, 48, has been missing since December 2008. She was last seen at Community Care Nursing Home in Marshall, where she was a resident. She was last seen wearing a navy blue shirt with a Harley Davidson emblem on the front, blue jeans and flip-flop shoes. She is 5-3 and weighs 240 pounds.

"It's been six or seven months and it doesn't get any easier," Ms. Lofton said. "My prayer is that she is alive and well and someone is not harming her and that she will be found and come home ... my prayer is God will watch over and protect all of them (missing persons)."

June Coonch said her daughter Samantha Lynn Coonch went to school on Sept. 9, 1999, in Henderson and never came home. "We haven't heard any word of where she is ... no leads or anything," Ms. Coonch said.

Families meet to ‘remember’ the missing        

Written by Sean Green   
Friday, 21 August 2009 

CUE hosts tour to raise awareness of missing persons throughout the U.S.

Two-hundred and thirty-eight pennies and counting. Two hundred and thirty-eight pennies is a physical reminder to Liz Lingenfelter that her daughter is missing.

"Your heart hurts everyday. You never have peace," said Lingenfelter.

Lingenfelter picks up a penny once a day and stores it in a jar to alleviate the pain of not knowing where her daughter, Beverly Meadows, is. She has been looking for Beverly since Dec. 26 when she went missing from a nursing home in Marshall, Texas.

Lingenfelter and Beverly's story was just one of the several from families of local missing persons who gathered outside the Bossier Civic Center Thursday afternoon to bring attention to and remember their loved ones. The event was part of the Community United Effort (CUE) Center for Missing Persons sixth annual “On the Road to Remember” Nationwide Tour.

Volunteers from the North Carolina-based orginization are traveling across the U.S. to raise awareness of missing children and adults and will be distributing a trail of DVD’s, press kits and valuable information throughout the path of the tour - concerning those missing, unidentified person’s and unsolved homicide cases that have gone cold.

“After so many years, these cases fade from the public’s radar, but for the families and friends of the missing, the nightmare continues — every minute of every day their loved one is missing,” said Monica Caison, CUE founder.

“We are traveling across the country to make sure no case fades from memory and will come to Florence, in an effort to remind everyone of these featured cases need a resolution for their families”, they need our help and the community’s help to bring them home”, she added.

The families of missing Clinton Nelson and Gregory Vice Jr. and recovered Michael Pierce sponsored the event that included a balloon launch to symbolize missing persons, a presentation to law enforcement for their efforts in finding Pierce and a candle light vigil.

Families from Shreveport-Bossier, surrounding areas and the whole state gathered with tents featuring pictures of their missing loved ones and distributed fliers to try and spread the word about them.

Despite the families were gathered together under such a dark cloud, Gregory Vice's mother, Kay Kruiger, is glad to be able to talk with other grieving families and offer support.

"I hate to see other people going through the same thing I'm going through, but I'm glad that we were all able to get together for the support. If nothing else, if one case were to get solved from this, it would be a great honor," she said.

Her son was last seen March 21, 2000. The story of his disappearance began when his truck broke down while traveling from Princeton to Taylor Town. Vice then got a ride to his friend's house and the pair got into an argument and Vice was reportedly last seen walking in the rain from his friend's house.

The time has not softened the blow for Kuriger.

"You still hold on to that hope that one day that phone is going to ring and that he's been hiding somewhere and he's coming out of hiding. My mind has even gone into that he's been put into a witness protection program. Even though logically you know that he's not going to be found alive, you still hold on to that hope he will be," said Kruiger.

She said the Bossier Sheriff's Office has not been helpful from the start, being both rude and incommunicative.

"I was living in Florida at the time and when I called them, they said, 'You know, it has to do with drugs,' but I don't know how they could know that if they don't know what the case was about. And I was even told that the perfect murder had been committed," said Kruiger.

Despite facing a miniscule chance that Gregory will be found alive, Kruiger pledged to never stop.

"I will never stop, not until I have him back or (I find) his body. I can't," she said.

Carolyn Johnson, mother of Clinton Nelson, was on hand to spread the word about her son who disappeared Sept. 1, 2006. Nelson vanished after moving to the area from South Dakota in April 2006. He disappeared while walking home from a friend's house after a party.

"It's excruciating, it is by far the worst experience I've ever been through. It's been explained to me that when you have someone who dies, you're allowed to go through the grieving process, but when you have a missing person, you go through that process over and over again every time there's a new lead that comes in," said Johnson.

The family has been led to believe that it was accidental but asked that if it was malicious, that anyone with information would come forth so they can finally have some resolution.

"There's so many people here who have been through this experience. We want others to know we're here and we know what we're going through but also that this can happen to anybody," said Johnson.

Matt Pierce described his brother, Michael, as a nice person and a "big teddy bear."

Michael went missing in 2002 and his remains were found in the Red River five years after the disappearance.

Pierce said his brother vanished after a coworker's husband became suspicious of an affair and the family believes the husband is responsible for Pierce's death. The husband was later convicted for killing his wife and unborn child after a dispute, but there was not enough proof to charge him with Michael's death.

Despite the fact his brother was not found alive, Matt said it gives him a sense of peace to know where his brother is.

"It's real important to go see him at the grave. It would've been better to see him alive, but to go see him and know where he is means everything," said Pierce.

Not having that peace of mind is what causes Lingenfelter to use the pennies. It comes from a family joke where her daughter would drop pennies in Lingenfelter's path to make her pick them up.

"Beverly would have a chance to laugh when she left the pennies laying in my path and I would have a chance to laugh when I found the pennies. Little things mean a lot," said Lingenfelter. "Today and every day when I bend down to pick up a penny, I may have tears in my eyes, but in my heart I know that Beverly has left them there and I know she is thinking about me no matter where she may be," she said.

While the chances of finding her daughter alive dwindles every day, Lingenfelter hopes that she's still out there — maybe she in a hospital. She calls the local police department every week and has even driven 497 miles in a day to canvass the area, look in hospitals and talk to police departments.

"I've looked everywhere. I've been in ditches, the woods, abandoned houses," said Lingenfelter.

She said that while she holds out hope against all hope, she is grateful for CUE offering her the opportunity to spread the word.

"I think what they're doing is wonderful. To be out here and see everyone and talk with them, you just don't know what it's like until it's happened to you," said Lingenfelter.

Shared with us from the family:

PENNIES FROM BEVERLY
(Little things mean a lot.)

Since my daughter, Beverly Meadows, has been missing I have picked up pennies and put them in a jar. 
From the very first day since Beverly has been missing I consider finding a penny Beverly's way of telling
me each and every day that she loves me.

You see, when I would go places with Beverly she would always leave pennies in my path so I would have
to walk over them to get where I was going.  She would laugh and I would say, "Oh, you just dropped
those pennies so I would find them, didn't you?"  Beverly would never admit to leaving the pennies for
me but a couple of times I have actually seen her dropping the pennies for me, but of course I never did
tell her.

Beverly has always understood what finding a penny meant to me.  When I was young and growing up
we didn't find money, especially laying on the ground, so Beverly has always known that finding a
penny made me laugh and I never could just leave them laying there. 

So you see, Beverly would have a chance to laugh when she left the pennies laying in my path and I
would have a chance to laugh when I found the pennies.  Little things mean a lot.  Today and every
day when I bend down to pick up a penny, I may have tears in my eyes, but in my heart I know that
Beverly has left them there and I know she is thinking about me no matter where she may be. 

Don't miss a chance to tell your loved one that you love them today. 
Please do not wait until tomorrow - because tomorrow may never come.

Missing persons rallies planned


By DD TURNER, News Messenger

Thursday, August 20, 2009

Torture is how Liz Lingenfelter describes her days of not knowing the whereabouts of her daughter, Beverly Meadows.

Ms. Meadows went missing in Dec. 26, 2008, and has not been seen or heard from since that time.
 
"We have not gotten one trace," said Ms. Lingenfelter. "It's is so unbearable."

In an effort to reach more people who might be able to help find her daughter, Ms. Lingenfelter will be at the CUE Center for Missing Person's Road to Remember Tour at the Bossier Civic Center in Bossier City, La., today, where her daughter's story will be featured.

Her son and daughter-in-law will be attending the event in Henderson also today at 6:30 p.m. at the Henderson Plaza Shopping Center, 2309 U.S. Highway 79 South. The family of a missing Henderson woman, Shirley Mac Hunt, will be highlighted as will Ms. Meadows.

"I wish I could be at both events but it is too hard to try to be in both places," she said. "The rally is a really good thing to get the news out."

Ms. Lingenfelter said they will have photos of Ms. Meadows at both events, and will be handing out posters. She said she made up an eight-photo frame and that she will have one and her son will also. She said she is thinking of releasing balloons with the inscriptions, "Beverly, I love you" and "Beverly, I miss you."

The Road to Remember Tour is an effort to raise awareness of missing persons cases that have "gone cold or have not received appropriate media coverage," according to a press release.

"After so many years, these cases fade from the public's radar, but for the families and friends of the missing, the nightmare continues — every minute of every day their loved one is missing," stated CUE Founder Monica Caison, who is leading the caravan of volunteers. "We are traveling across the country to make sure no case fades from memory," Ms. Caison said in the press release. "Every one of these featured cases needs a resolution. The families need our help and the community's help to bring them home."

The tour will cover 4,819 miles in 12 days beginning in Roberson County, N.C., and concluding in New Hanover County, N.C.

"After searching and searching and searching, I had to lie down and just rest," Ms. Lingenfelter said regarding her daughter." Now, I'm ready to get up and go again. We're still looking. We are not giving up. We're not ever going to give up.

"It hurts and I scream and cry. I try to be by myself when I do it. My husband can't stand to see me cry. It hurts him to see it. It's unbearable and you can't really understand unless you've been in this position."

Beverly Meadows was 48 when she walked away from Community Care Nursing Home, 207 W. Merritt St. in Marshall and would have turned 49 five days later on Dec. 31.

At the time of her disappearance, she was described as a white female, 5-feet 3-inches tall, having graying black hair and weighing about 240 pounds.

She is believed to have left the facility wearing a blue T-shirt with a Harley-Davidson emblem on the front, blue jeans and flip flops.

Ms. Meadows was said to suffer from asthma, diabetes and emotional problems and was required to take medication daily. She took no personal belongings or prescription drugs with her when she left the nursing home.

If you have any information as to the whereabouts of Ms. Meadows, contact Lt. Patrick Clayton at 903-935-4546, the Marshall Police Department at 903-935-4576 or call Community Care Nursing Home at 903-938-3793. All after hours calls may be directed to the MPD dispatch at 903-935-4575.

Project Jason announces the featured missing persons in the November 2009 issue of the CDLJobs.com Online Magazine, which can be viewed at http://www.cdljobs.c...azine/NOV09.htm  This month's ad is on page 23. The site receives thousands of visitors per day.

Each month, CDLJobs.com publishes a full color ad in their popular online magazine which will feature 5-6 of Project Jason's missing person cases from across the country. The ad has clickable links which take the reader to additional information about the missing person, and a link to their printable poster.  Readers are encouraged to sign up for the AAN program and help with poster distribution. "You can be a Hero" is the theme of the joint venture.

Awareness Angels Network (AAN). AAN, begun by Project Jason in 2008, provides a way for the public to assist the families of missing persons. Missing persons posters designed specifically for the AAN program are disseminated via email to those enrolled in the program. Participants can then upload the posters to websites, print and place the posters in public areas, and forward them to their contacts. The program helps spread the word and increase the chances of finding the person.

In the November issue, the following missing persons were featured:

Lacey Anderson, missing from Norfolk, NE since 8/23/2009: http://projectjason.....php?topic=6804
Note: Sadly, Lacey was found deceased after press time.

Home for the Holidays 2009

Beverly Meadows, missing from Marshall, TX since 12/26/2008

A Christmas and Birthday Message for Beverly

"We love you and we miss you so very much each and every day."

"Christmas will not be the same without you. Also, we hope and pray that we will be able to give you a hug and tell you Happy Birthday this year - December 31, 2009."

My daughter, Beverly Meadows, has been missing since December 26, 2008. She was a resident at the Community Care Nursing Home in Marshall, Texas, and it is believed that she walked out of the Nursing Home that evening. We have not had one clue as to her disappearance. No one has seen or heard from her since that date. The last time I saw Beverly was on Christmas Day and the last time I talked to her on the telephone was the day she disappeared. I told her I would see her before her Birthday which was December 31. Beverly and I talked on the phone almost every day of the week. The only place that I believe Beverly would have wanted to go would be to her home which is about twenty miles from the Nursing Home. She didn't make it to her home and we have looked constantly with no leads as to where she could be.

Beverly at a Christmas past

Christmas has always been a very special time for our family. Beverly has one brother and one sister and several nieces and nephews. She has always shown her love to each and every one of them. We would always gather as a family and spend the day together, eating Christmas dinner with special treats (not worrying about the calories - we would count those on another day) and opening gifts from each other. This year we will still get together as a family but there will be a great big hole in our hearts and a silence that Beverly always seemed to fill with her laughter and joy of the simple things of life that lots of people seem to take for granted.

One thing we could always count on was that Beverly would want to go out and look at all the Christmas lights. She loved just going out and driving through the streets and seeing all the beautiful Christmas lights and decorations. We would drive for hours just looking and enjoying them. Now I have already begun to see the Christmas decorations and I have to stop and get control of my feelings before I can continue down the street because I look over at the empty seat in the car and know how much my heart hurts because she is not there. I always tell her right then and there that I love her and miss her.

Beverly still has her home on a rural street in Texas and her brother and his family lives on that same street. When Beverly and I would drive down that street going to her home all of the little animals would actually follow our vehicle and wait for her to get out of the car so she could pet them. They knew the vehicle and who might be in it. Picture this - dogs, cats, and little ducks in a row just following along behind the vehicle just waiting for Beverly to hug them and give them a little special treat that she always had ready and waiting for them. The little horses and goats would be waiting by the neighbor's fence to see Beverly. She always filled the bird feeders as soon as she got home and we would sit on her front porch and watch all the beautiful birds come and get their bird seeds. To this date, the little animals still follow my vehicle down her street but as soon as I open the door they know she is not there. How very sad to know that they miss her, too. It was not unusual for Beverly to receive a bag of bird seed as a Christmas gift or a bag of cat or dog food because she would definitely make sure that all the little animals were fed. Beverly has had many pets during her lifetime, always treating each one so special and giving each one their own special name and in return she received unconditional love from all of them. Now, all of her pets have passed on to Pet Heaven through the years. She only had one sheep left to care for when she went missing so because we couldn't give him the care he needed we gave him to a nice family who promised to care for him.

Beverly and a few of her many beloved pets

Beverly always went shopping for Christmas cards early and sent them out early. The first Christmas card to be received in the mail box would be from Beverly and you would know it was meant especially for you and you could open it up and it would be playing Christmas music. Now even to this date, Beverly is still getting cards in her mailboxfor all occasions from friends who do not want to believe that she is really gone. They say when she gets back home she will open them so I put them in a box and save them for her and hope some day she will be able to read them. Even though Beverly was not seeing these friends because she was embarrassed to be in a Nursing Home and she had gained a little weight but they were still sending her cards in the mail and she always looked forward to opening her mail box and finding them. They knew she was a beautiful, kind-hearted, caring person - both inside and out. I always think of Beverly as a good example of how the people in the world should treat each other and it would be a much better place to live.

We have found in our daily search for Beverly that most people want to surround themselves by people who make them feel good so they turn their heads and look the other way. Or, they ask how old she is and as soon as they know she is not a child they lose interest. I always have to say that a daughter is still your child or a son is still your child and the more years you have with them - the more memories that you have to remember. I am sorry but right now I can't pretend to be happy just to make others feel good. Also, I have found that most people do not know what to say when I tell them that my daughter is missing. I understand this because I have thought back to the time before Beverly was missing and tried to think of what I might have said to someone and it is very hard. But the one thing I would have asked if there is any way I can help in your search. I would have followed through by doing something that was helpful. It really hurts when people say they will help and never show up to offer a helping hand.

One thing I do is look at each and every face of the people I meet today. Not only looking for Beverly but for other people who are missing. I saw a girl in a store that looked so much like my daughter, I turned around and talked to her and told her that my daughter is missing and she ended up giving me a hug - which meant a lot to me. One thing that is extremely hard to do is go to Walmarts because that is where Beverly and I would go shopping almost every week for necessities for her and treats for the little animals. It is very difficult to walk down the aisles in the store now without thinking of her and wiping away the tears. I always take a handful of tissues and I usually make my trips to the store short.

My husband and I rented a vehicle for several days and drove over six hundred miles searching for Beverly and handing out posters. Our vehicle is getting a little old and we use it now for shorter trips each week. We went to some major hospitals and we drove to a lot of little towns and told people about Beverly. On a road in Texas, I saw a girl standing outside starting to get in a big truck with a guy and she looked so much like my daughter, same hair, same face, same clothes - just so much resemblance. I drove down the road a short distance and looked at my husband and said, "I have to go back and talk to that girl and see if she is Beverly." After turning around and going back and talking to the girl standing by the truck I knew she wasn't my daughter. She understood and I told her to please tell her family the things she needs to tell them today because you never know what tomorrow will bring.

Thank goodness, my husband - Beverly's stepfather - always goes with me no matter where I go and is always there for me. Well, actually, he doesn't go through all the wooded areas I search because he is afraid of snakes. Oh, by the way, I am also afraid of snakes but I have only come face to face with a couple of snakes and they were just as afraid of me as I was of them. I have also spoken to many homeless people living in the edge of the woods in the most unexpected places. I always talk to them and ask their name and where they are from and if they are missing and if there is anyone I can contact for them or is there anything I can do to help them.

This Christmas is going to be the toughest Christmas I have ever lived through but I have to maintain my sanity and realize that I have other family members who need me. We are going to celebrate Christmas at their homes and my husband and I will be there to let them know that we are here for them, also. Beverly's biological Dad passed away on February 19, 2005, and he will be remembered by all the family. It was so extremely hard for Beverly to lose her Dad because she loved him unconditionally and talked about him all the time and missed him so very much.

I can look in every room in my home and see things that Beverly has bought me for past Christmas - especially beautiful pictures and little statues of angels. Beverly always bought Christmas gifts for lots of people but the one special gift that she bought for me was for Mother's Day. It is a balloon that has these words printed on it - Mom, admit it! I am your favorite, aren't I? Signed by Beverly Theresa, Happy Mothers Day - 1987. This balloon is twenty-two years old and still has not lost its shape. I also have a picture of Beverly that was taken on that same Mother's Day in 1987.

Gifts from Beverly

This is the first Christmas that Beverly has been missing but it seems like it has been two because she was missing the day after Christmas last year. The shock and trauma that we suffered that day when we found out Beverly was missing has erased the memory of that Christmas. My heart goes out to all of the people who have lived through years and years without their loved ones. Unless you have lived through the agony of not knowing where your loved one is there is no possible way you could understand how heart-wrenching it really is. I can definitely say that time passing does not make it any easier.

The first few months Beverly was missing I couldn't eat because I thought she may be hungry, when I was cold - I wondered if she was out there in the cold. My mind is constantly thinking of where she could be - is she hungry - is someone helping her -is she being held against her will - is she out there taking care of someone else -or is she already in Pet Heaven - taking care of all the little pets that she loved so very much. Yes, when my mind has to go there, I can picture her holding and caring for the little pets.

This Christmas we are planning to release twelve red heart balloons (one for each month that Beverly has been missing) and we will write on each one to express how much we love and miss her. We released balloons at the Cue Center National Road Tour stop in Bossier City, Louisiana, on August 20, 2009, and it was such a lasting memory. It was an amazing feeling just watching them climb higher and higher into the sky. At that time I knew that if Beverly was still missing on Christmas Day, we would be releasing balloons for the one year mark.

I agree, it has been extremely hard writing this because I have to actually put the words on paper of the thoughts that wonder through my mind each and every day. Sometimes I wonder if I were terminally ill if I could actually lay down and die not knowing where my daughter is and if she is ok. As long as I am alive I will be searching for her. For each day that Beverly is missing, I put another penny in a jar. Beverly loved dropping pennies in my path so each time I find one I know she has placed it there. When all is said and done, "Little things really do mean a lot!"

Thank you so very much to Project Jason for giving me the opportunity to put some of my thoughts into writing so that others can have a glimpse into Beverly's life and my life since she has been missing.
