Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today hosted the sixth annual Never Forgotten – Arkansas Takes Action event at the Benton Event Center. The daylong event helps raise awareness of issues surrounding missing persons and recognizes Arkansas’s missing children and adults. “Time will never heal the hurt and uncertainty these families feel every hour of every day,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “But it is my mission each year that these families walk away from the Never Forgotten event with a sense of support that their state and members of law enforcement have not and will not ever forget their loved one.” Wayne Ruthven, a consultant with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), provided law enforcement officers with an update on a program being created to coordinate efforts to assist children who become separated from their families as a result of a disaster. The Attorney General’s office and several other Arkansas agencies meet monthly to develop an action plan, coordinated by the Arkansas Department of Human Services, as part of a pilot program. “Under the leadership of the Arkansas Mass Care Coordinator, Edwin Lyons, and the Department of Human Services, NCMEC is supporting a great group of stakeholder representatives from a number of state, federal and local agencies working diligently to develop a children's disaster reunification plan for Arkansas which can also be a model for states nationwide,” said Ruthven.
