When we live a life which has good things that happen almost every day, we tend to forget that there are many families in Colorado who can't experience the same joy.

It's been a couple months since I did a search of the website for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. I logged onto the site this morning and was amazed how many new faces I am seeing for children that are missing throughout the state.

To me, there isn't any difference between these children, whether they were runaways or if they were kidnapped. In either case, there are families in our state are struggling to cope with the fact that their children are somewhere that they can't see them.

My goal is to do whatever we can to bring these families together, and have a happy ending in every case listed below.

Please do your part and look at the children we have listed. If you have any information that can assist authorities in their safe return home, please call them immediately and let's make it happen.
