If you’re a mom, there has probably been a time in your life when your child has appeared to be missing. Maybe he or she was delayed in coming home from school, a playdate, or a trip to the local store. As time ticks away, you become frantic with concern over the safety of your child. Usually, the unassuming child walks in—safe and sound.
Yet there is a growing number of children who do not return home, but rather simply vanish from sight.
This and like topics are discussed on the relatively new podcast, Patchwork, from the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women.
Host Bob Davis does an excellent job of interviewing his guests and pulling at the heartstrings of his listeners.
He recently interviewed Dr. David Hunt, recipient of the Attorney General’s Citizen Volunteer Service Award. Dr. Hunt regularly volunteers with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) where he works with their artists using forensic anthropology as a tool to help bring families closure when only a child’s remains are found. “I know I am helping,” said Dr. Hunt. “That’s why I volunteer.”
This podcast handles very sensitive topics, and host Bob Davis does so with grace and great concern for his listeners. Beautifully edited, musically upbeat, and a tribute to helping women in crisis.
