Last year, Clear Channel Outdoor-Jacksonville Division, Florida Outdoor Advertising Association (FOAA) and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) donated several billboards to raise the public’s awareness for several Florida missing children. Among them were billboards for missing  Kamiyah Mobley, Jarkeuis Adside, Zachary Michael-Cole Bernhardt, Bryan Dossantos-Gomes, and  Trenton Duckett.

In South Carolina, a Billboard to be erected for missing NY teen Brittanee Drexel.

A large roadside billboard will go up sometime in the next week that features what has become one of Myrtle Beach’s only unsolved missing persons cases.

The billboard will be placed near the North Santee community in Georgetown County and feature a large picture of 17-year-old Brittanee Drexel who vanished from Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach on April 25.

Honesty is the best policy – when there is money in it.

Most of the 2,726 children listed at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) have no rewards payable for their save return. For those that do, there have been few updates in their disappearances. When rewards are announced, they seem to increase the number of tips concerning the missing child but in many instances the tips seem to be personal theories more than significant leads, so how effective are they?

At one time there was a £2.5m or at today’s exchange rate $ 3,776,429 reward for missing Madeleine McCann. The reward amount is no longer listed on the site so whether it is still available is unclear.

However, these are some other available rewards from some random missing children cases. In some instances they of are offered for information or for the child’s safe return, while in others it is for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the abduction.

Amber Dubois            $60,000
Brittanee Drexel        $12,000
Adji Desir                   $23,000
Kara Kopetsky           $30,000
Trenton Duckett         $21,000
Haleigh Cummings     $25,500
Briant Rodriguez        $50,000
Victoria Stafford         $50,000

Attorneys for accused killer Casey Anthony are complaining about the excessive media coverage in Florida of their client. As most everyone is aware, she is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her young daughter, Caylee. They are seeking a change of venue for her trial.

While she and her family continue to generate “news”, some Florida missing children cases could use renewed coverage. The disappearances this year of, Haleigh Cummings from Satsuma, Fl along with missing Adji Desir from Immakolee, Fl. have faded from the headlines. Both remain missing with few updates of efforts to find them.

Recently the parents of missing Madeleine McCann were featured guests on Oprah to mark the second anniversary of her disappearance in Portugal yet Trenton Duckett who has been missing from Leesburg, Fl. since August 2006, receives little if any mention in the press.

In this story from ABC Action News in Florida, authorities released a sketch of a person of interest in an alleged abduction. The 8-year-old victim was found but apparently he was confused on details surrounding his abduction. Interestingly there were no signs of forced entry into the child’s home but then again it wouldn’t be the first time in Florida a child may have been abducted under similar circumstances. Authorities in Satsuma, Fl are searching for Haleigh Cummings who was allegedly abducted from her home.


He also has a tattoo of a bear with an open mouth on his right bicep, the boy told detectives.

He was wearing wearing blue jeans, possibly rolled up, and a white t-shirt.

The child also told detectives the man may smoke or chew tobacco.

The person’s vehicle is described as a older, light blue or gray pick-up truck with a black interior and center gear shift.

The truck has a Diamond Plate tool box and the boy said a muzzled dog , possibly a Boxer, was in the bed of the truck.

If you have any information about the incident or this man, call 911 or the Sheriff’s Office at (352) 726-1121.

Note: Crystal River is approximately 109 miles from Satsuma but 48 miles from Leesburg, Fl. where Trenton Duckett went missing in August of 2006..
