Families With Missing Loved Ones Look For Closure


Friends and families with missing loved ones from all over Michigan made their way to East Lansing today.

The Michigan State Police hosted their third annual "Missing in Michigan" event at the Eagle Eye Golf Club.

This event moves across the state and was previously held in Grand Rapids and Detroit.

Families were able to provide DNA samples and get together to provide support for one another in the hope to find some closure.

The event is a way for those affected by the disappearance of a loved one to meet with police and other organizations to assist to bring them home.

"It kind of breahes the gap between law enforcement and the missing families so they know that they have somebody out there that's working on their behalf," said Lt. Michael Shaw, from the Michigan State Police. "I think it gives them an opportunity to meet with other missing families that had somebody come up missing, and maybe had found them to give them some type of support structure as well."

There are over 4 thousand people missing in Michigan.
