A blog about missing children and adults

Findemma.com originated with my second novel, The Year of Fog, which traces a woman’s search for six-year-old Emma, who disappeared from a San Francisco beach while in her care. Over the last couple of years, many readers have told me that, after seeing findemma.com mentioned in the book, they went to the web to see if it was an actual site. So I’ve decided to use this web address to bring attention to the plight of missing persons, with a special emphasis on missing children.

While The Year of Fog is merely a fictional account of a missing child, thousands of people go missing in the United States each year. Each story represents a devastated family. This site is dedicated to those families.

Jason Jolkowski

June 24th will mark the 27th birthday of Jason Jolkowski, who disappeared at the age of 19 from his family’s driveway in Omaha, Nebraska, on June 13, 2001. He has not been seen or heard from since. His cell phone has never been used, and his bank account has never been accessed. He simply disappeared without a trace one morning while he was outside bringing in trash cans.

His mother, Kelly Jolkowski, founded Project Jason with this mission: “to create and increase public awareness of missing people through a variety of outreach and educational activities. Project Jason seeks to bring hope and assistance to families of the missing by providing resources and support.”

These resources include flyers, personal ID kits, state legislation, and more. In a bid to raise $2,700 by October 6th, the fifth anniversary of the organization, Project Jason is seeking donations of $27. You can read details about the fund raising campaign here, and you can make donations by credit card or paypal on the website.
