A joint program between the Washington State Patrol and Gordon Trucking hopes to help bring home some of the state’s missing children using pictures and information on the side of Gordon trailers. The initiative, part of the Homeward Bound program hopes to help bring home some of the 23,000 children that are reported missing in the state every year.
The Homeward Bound program was started in 2005. Gordon Trucking currently has over 85 trucks on the road on which pictures of missing children can be seen. According to the WSP webpage dedicated to the program, “the hope is that putting pictures of missing children from Washington out to the nation that someone will recognize and help locate these missing children.”
Since 2005, the Homeward Bound program has helped to recover 6 missing children. Currently there are 20 missing children featured on Gordon Trucking trailers.
Anyone with information on a missing persons case is urged to call 1-800-THE-LOST.
