When singer/songwriter, Jannel Rap's sister (www.jannelrap.com), Gina Bos, disappeared Oct 17, 2000 she had no idea that this would be a pivotal life changing moment. Gina's story had no scandal, no suspects and lacked the hook and intrigue to get the attention of the national public. Gina Bos had simply vanished after performing at a pub in Lincoln, NE. Six months of slamming doors woke Jannel up in the middle of the night to do what she already does. The concept of using entertainment to get attention for the missing was born. Since Oct 2001, 150 concerts nationwide, 2 nonprofit organizations (www.411Gina.org, www.411Warrior.org), a TV show called "America Lost and FOUND" and now a monthly international webcast featuring east coast missing.

FEATURED ARTIST & Salem, MA native, Kelly Fitzgerald, just released her first solo CD "So Far." Kelly has shared the stage with such artists as Shelby Lynne, Nancy Griffith, Cheap Trick, Eddie Money, Vonda Shepard, the Gin Blossoms and more...

Thanks for your attention!

Other initiatives:
I am working with Kelly Jolkowski of ProjectJason.org in a hugh effort to change some laws pertaining
to Missing Persons. The effort, "Campaign for the Missing 2006", is a state-by-state grass roots effort
to get new Missing Persons legislation passed in every state. I took on NJ and have already
retained sponsorship from my local legislator, Senator Loretta Weinberg. The proposal is currently
in the research/drafting stage.

CUE Center for Missing Persons Missing Persons Conference 2006 in NC - March 24-26, 2006
We will be attending the above CUE Conference in March. Like last year, the conference will provide
Training and invaluable interaction with many Missing Persons Organizations and families of the missing.
This year I will be speaking about Patricia in the Victim's Hour.

The Center For HOPE - 5th Annual Missing Persons Day in NY - April 2, 2006
We will be attending the 5th Annual Missing Persons Day at the NYS Museum in Albany
on April 2. As in the past few years we attended, Patricia will again be remembered among
the missing in a touching ceremony. This event is usually well attended by the media.

We will also have a table set up at the same location the day before on Sat. April 1 as part of
Safety and Information Day. This day is open to the public and we will have Patricia's DVDs, Flyers,
other information available for distribution all day long. Patricia's DVD will be playing throughout the
day. Families of missing persons are encouraged to call Mr. Patrick Whalen at 518-473-2936,
to reserve a table if you are interested in setting up a display for your missing loved one.

National Children's Missing Persons Day - May 25, 2006
The Lakehurst, NJ Elementary School has contacted me and asked me to speak to their children, grades
3-6, at an event they are setting up for this important day. I am going to do it and organizers even said to
be sure to tell a little about Patricia as well. The history of this National Missing Persons Day will be
discussed. Keeping the children safe will be stressed. I am trying to get a video on safety tips. I also
am looking into child ID kits.

Please support H. Res 189 - National Missing Persons Day
Background

The day of May 25th is set aside each year as National Missing Children’s Day, but currently there
is no day to recognize the families of all missing persons across the nation. In 2004, there were
47,890 persons over the age of 18 reported missing to law enforcement agencies nationwide.
Regardless of age or circumstances, all missing persons have families who need support and
guidance to endure the days, months, or years they may spend searching for their missing loved ones.

H.Res.189 would designate April 6th as “National Missing Persons Day.” The proposed date would
coincide with the birthday of Suzanne Lyall, a University at Albany student who has been missing
since March 2, 1998. Lyall, a computer science major, was last seen after working a shift at the
local mall. In 2001, Governor Pataki designated April 6th as Missing Persons Day in New York State.
The goal of this resolution is to bring missing person cases like Suzanne’s back into the public eye and
ensure that they are not forgotten.


CUE Center for Missing Persons Missing Persons On - On The Tour To Remember (OTTR) 2006 - June 2006
Patricia will be among the missing persons featured as CUE embarks on their 3rd annual OTTR this June
2006. CUE will be traveling the east coast and making media stops along the way. The featured case this year
will be Molly Datillo. As in the previous 2 years, I will be creating a special DVD for this trip. The DVD will
feature all the missing persons profiled and be played and distributed to the media along the trip.

xx Media Coverage of "Patricia's Law"
« Reply #26 on: Nov 9th, 2006, 7:39pm »

We are gaining some steam for "Patricia's Law" which has now been introduced in both the NJ Senate (S2255) and the NJ Assembly (A3643) in the past 3 weeks and assigned to respective committees. The committee meetings are coming up in a few weeks and I plan on testifying at these public discussions.

The following video link is the News 12 New Jersey coverage which ran on Oct. 30-31, 2006 at 7PM, 8PM, 9PM then another version at 10:30PM every hour into late morning the next day:

http://www.patriciaviolamissing.homestead.com/News12_NJ_Patricias_Law_Oct_30_2006.wmv

The Bergen News (weekly) covered "Patricia's Law" in two of their editions on Nov. 1, 2006. This covered around 15 towns in Bergen County where we live. See link below to article which contains other important links:

DESCRIPTION: 5-foot-2, 125 pounds, fair complexion, brown hair and eyes

QUOTE: "After all these years, it would be a miracle if she comes back," Jim Viola said Monday, "but we're still very hopeful that she'll be found."

CONTACT: Bogota police at 201-487-2400

PENDING: Some state lawmakers have proposed a measure requiring police departments to immediately accept any missing person's report, rather than wait a certain period before declaring a person missing. "Patricia's Law" remains in committee.

xx "Patricia's Law" Update in NJ
« Reply #29 on: Jul 27th, 2007, 2:25pm »

Everyone,
Please read below article. The article appeared in several local papers, including Bogota, Ridgefield Park, Teaneck, Little Ferry and Hackensack. As pointed out in the article, we need NJ residents to write letters (sample letter available on Pat's website) to their State Assemblymen and Assemblywoman to request their support for "Patricia's Law" - Assembly Bill A3643, when it comes up for vote at the end of this year. "Patricia's Law" promises to revamp the way Missing Persons cases are handled in NJ. Presently, with the exception of an obsolete Missing Persons Policy under the NJ State Police, there are no laws or statures governing the handling of Missing Persons in NJ. The Missing Persons Policy under the NJ State Police was last updated in the 80's.

If we do not pass A3643 before 12/31/07, the current state legislative session will end and we will have to start over. New Jersey cannot allow this to happen.

BOGOTA BULLETIN
Friday, July 20, 2007

Hope is the best of things
"Patricia's Law" to go before State Assembly
BY ROBIN DECICCO
Staff Writer

Six and a half years since his wife’s disappearance; Bogota resident Jim Viola continues to channel both his hopes and frustrations into “Patricia’s Law," a legislation focused on improving the way New Jersey agencies handle missing persons cases. Already passed in the Senate, the proposal will be on the Assembly’s plate in the fall.
The law is named after Patricia Viola, who vanished from a Bogota neighborhood Feb. 13, 2001. She was a 42-year-old mother and homemaker when she was reported missing without a trace.
According to the New Jersey State Police Missing Persons Unit, since 2000, New Jersey has approximately 1,700 active unsolved missing persons cases; Patricia’s case is one of them. Viola explained that throughout the past several years, he has heard “horror stories” from several families that are also searching for missing people, saying that many police agencies are not helpful in this situation.
Fortunately for Viola, the Bogota Police Department, under the direction of Chief Frank Gurnari and Det. James Sepp, has been very responsive to the case. Viola refers to the relationship he has with the police department as “a good one," and one in which they “work together” to try and solve the case.
"After Pat disappeared, I started to talk to people who are going through the same thing and families have told me that police sometimes don’t even take reports of a missing person, nor do they follow through with the investigation;" Viola said.
The more Viola heard those stories, the more he knew that he needed to address the holes that existed in the legal and federal systems. In 2006, .Viola contacted State Sen. Loretta Weinberg (D-Teaneck) and requested support on what was then called the “Model Missing Persons' Legislation." He emphasized to Weinberg that the law strives to give hope to families of missing persons and keeps them actively engaged in the search and rescue efforts.
After hard work, on June 21, 2007, “Patricia’s Law” was unanimously passed, 37-0, in the New Jersey Senate. The Assembly Appropriations Committee will review the legislation in November.
Viola is urging residents to help him and the thousands other families who are searching for their missing loved ones to pass "Patricia’s Law." He created a Web site, http://www.patriciaviolamissing.homestead.com, that contains extensive background information on his wife, and he tells visitors how they can help pass the law.

Patricia’s Law
Residents can write letters to their district assembly representative and voice their support when. “Patricia’s Law” comes to vote later this year. Under this legislation, law enforcement agencies shall accept without delay any report of a missing person and cannot refuse to accept such reports for any reason.
One of the more important elements to this legislative is that medical examiners and coroners will be required to work with the state police to promptly identify recovered bodies and body parts.
In addition, if a person is missing for more than 30 days, “Patricia’s Law” requires that a DNA reference sample is secured from the family and forwarded to the appropriate agency for analysis and entry into the Combined DNA Index System for Missing Persons. Once the DNA profile is available, the missing persons record in the National Crime Information System will be updated to reflect that DNA is available.
Though the legislation is on the verge of passing, Viola said he is no closer to where he was six and a half years ago to finding his wife.
“So many possibilities exist to explain what might have happened to her, and we have no evidence to prove anything;" Viola said.
According to Viola, Patricia has epilepsy, a seizure disorder, which caused her to take two types of medication daily, including Dilantin and Phenobarbital. VioIa and the Bogota Police Department believe that Patricia had not taken her medication since she disappeared -- her prescription has not been used in any participating pharmacy in the country
One of Viola’s theories explaining Patricia’s disappearance is that she may have had a seizure leaving her disoriented and with amnesia.
"She could be in a hospital or a ward and have no idea who she is. She could be a Jane Doe:" Viola said.
Viola and his children, Christine, 19, and Michael, 16, have sent flyers to numerous hospitals, shelters, and crisis centers. A letter was even written to Patricia and inserted into an envelope with her name, photo and description on it. These were brought to shelters in the area with instructions to deliver it to Patricia or a person matching her description, but no responses were ever received.
When Patricia disappeared, she was on foot and did not have access to a car. She was last seen at the Bixby School library, volunteering at her son Michael’s school.
The last person who saw her was the Palisade Avenue crossing guard. Days after Patricia’s disappearance, drivers and pedestrians were stopped on local streets and asked for any information, but no one had any leads.
Viola has pasted flyers with his wife’s picture and information throughout New Jersey, as well as in states across the country. He is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who can provide information leading to Patricia’s safe return home.
Pictures of Patricia are glued to the front of Viola’s home and flyers
pressed up against the windows of a his car. Everywhere he goes, he passes out buttons that read, “Where is Patricia Viola?”
"I am trying to do everything that I can, but it is frustrating that we still have no clues, no answers," Viola said.
Similarly, Sepp said that there are so many possibilities of where Patricia might be, but there are no ways of validating any one possibility.
“This case will be opened until it is solved,” Sepp said. “If it still isn’t solved by the time I retire, I will see to it that the person who replaces me puts time and energy into the case."
At the same time that Viola thinks his wife could be in a hospital or shelter, he also acknowledges that the worst could have occurred.
“She could have been grabbed or put into an unknown vehicle,” Viola said.

Puttinq the word out
Today, Viola continues to spread the message that missing persons is a national problem. According to the National Institute of Justice, on any given day there are 100,000 active missing persons cases in the United States. Viola believes the number indicates that a lot of people are getting away with murder, since the majority of missing persons equates to the fact that they were killed.
“This number should alarm all of us. I don’t know why more people aren’t concerned about how many go missing every single day and how many murderers there are walking around;" Viola said.
As far as thinking about seeing his wife again, Viola said that he thinks it is a possibility that she will be found.
"We’re praying for a miracle."
