Imagine going years without knowing what happened to a loved one who vanished without a trace.
Well, there are 169 families in Alabama who’ve been doing just that.
Law enforcement officials say solving a missing persons’ case is one of the toughest crimes to solve.
But answers may finally be near for those families. Tonight we’re speaking to a family who’s loved-one vanished.
“When I got in the house, everything how we left it was like that. The pot of spaghetti was still on the stove. All her close, her purse and everything was still here.” says the victim’s Stacey Riley.
“It’s gonna take a whole state of people getting together and coming up with ways and hopefully prevent a lot of this” says vitim’s Pam Riley.
Pam Riley is the mother of LaQuanta Riley, who’s been missing nearly 11 years. And now she’s started a movement that’s pushed the state to come up with a new way for investigators to solve these missing persons mysteries — one so big, the state is getting involved.
So what is it?
