LAKEWOOD — In the wake of the continued impacts of COVID-19, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is shifting its annual Missing in Colorado event to an online session on August 22, 2020.
Families of those missing for more than one year in the state are asked to visit the CBI website and access a number of resources available, as well as obtain the link to join the virtual event beginning at 10:00 a.m. on August 22. Additionally, families of the missing can call to speak with an advocate as well. A team of CBI victim advocates will be answering a dedicated phone line (303-239-4242) from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on August 22.
Missing in Colorado gives families the opportunity to speak with other co-victims, victim advocates, and others as part of this important event. The event also provides resources to family members as they face the unimaginable impacts from having someone they love go missing.
“Our team is dedicated to helping the families of the missing, and to ensure they have access to the latest information and tools to help them as they navigate through this devastating chapter in their lives,” said CBI Director John Camper. “We ask all Coloradans to aid in the effort to give a voice to the missing by reviewing the CBI Cold Case Database, the Missing Persons Resource Page, and the list of those missing in the state and share any information that may lead to resolution in these critically important cases.”
In another effort to honor the missing in the state, a CBI investigative analyst built a series of slides highlighting 50 cold cases across the state.
There are currently 1,340 total missing persons in the State of Colorado. Of those, 579 have been missing for a year or more.
