xx Kristin Modaferri Profile on NCMA
« Reply #1 on: Dec 10th, 2004, 10:12am »

The namesake for Kristenís Law, Kristen Modafferi, is NMCOís first featured profile. Because of the lobbying efforts of Kristenís parents and NMCO along with sponsorship from North Carolina Congresswoman, Sue Myrick, Kristenís Law was passed unanimously and since June 2002, families have had the Center for Missing Adults, a division of NMCO, which provides a national clearinghouse for missing adults and to offers support services to their families. Please read on for more details about why Kristen is missed very much by the people who know her.


Kristen is the kind of person who wants to experience everything life has to offer before settling down. She is extremely intelligent with many accomplishments even though she has been missing since just after her 18th birthday. Not only was she studying Industrial Design at North Carolina State University, one of the top design schools in the country, she was also taking summer classes at the University of California at Berkeley while working two jobs, one a Spinelliís Coffee Shop, and another at the Cafť Museo at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Sheís the kind of person that can do anything she puts her heart into like winning math competitions, speech and debate tournaments, receiving the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Writing Award, singing alto in an a cappella group, getting a full academic scholarship through the Park Foundation, and on her SAT test she scored 1570 out 1600 points total and still wanted to try it again until she had a perfect score. Kristen succeeds at what she does because she has natural talent along with a strong desire to do her best.

Not only is she an excellent student but she is a very caring person. Kristenís parents have received many e-mails from her friends listing the nice things she has done for them. For instance, during a cross country meet, one of the other girls on the team hurt her ankle but in the midst of celebrating the teamís win, Kristen saw her sitting alone and stopped celebrating to sit beside her to help console her friendís pain. And while many teenagers wouldnít be caught hanging around with their family, Kristen and her three sisters would have special bonding time when she would come home from college and go to the movies or out for ice cream with all of them. Even the smallest sister was included even though she is 11 years younger, Kristen would read, go to the park, or do art projects together with her.


Although Kristen is extremely talented, she is also just a typical personóshe loves pizza but hates Spinach. Kristenís mom, dad, three sisters, even her black and white cat, Pirate, (Kristen gave him that name because he has a black patch over his eye), and all her friends miss her very much and are continuing to keep up hope until she is found. For information about Kristen, please see her web profile at: http://www.nmco.org/ncma/gallery/ncmaprofile_all.php?A200300325W.

Kristen had completed her freshman year in the School of Design at North Carolina State University, one of a close knit group of twenty-five students on full academic scholarship through the Park Foundation. Kristen was encouraged, like her fellow students, to plan an enriching "summer experience", either domestically or abroad, and be prepared to share the adventure with the group of Park Scholars on returning to NC State University for their sophomore year.

Kristen had researched and planned a summer filled with life experiences in a big city, San Francisco, where she would work, live on her own, and take photography courses at the University of California at Berkeley to compliment her design major. Departing for San Francisco on her 18th birthday, on June 1, 1997, she found employment Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Spinelli's Coffee Shop in the financial district of downtown San Francisco. She had just started a second job on weekends at the Cafe Museo at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. She was planning to start class at Berkeley on June 24, 1997. The day before, June 23, 1997,Kristen left work after her shift at Spinelli's, and completely disappeared without a trace. The case remains unsolved, but the determination of all of us to find the answers we need remains intact.

Efforts to search for clues about what happened to Kristen continue, including talking to people on the streets, handing out countless "Help Us Find Kristen" flyers, revisiting the areas we believe Kristen had gone to during the three weeks before she disappeared. We, Kristen's parents, greatly appreciate the cooperation of our TV, radio, and newspaper contacts; they are instrumental in keeping Kristen's story alive. We have spread the word via the Internet, and through daily Email correspondence with members of the Kristen Search Team, which consists of Law Enforcement, Private Investigators, friends, neighbors, and many, many concerned parents of young girls and boys who are outraged that crimes like this are being committed against our children. Billboards are another means that we will use to make sure that Kristen is a familiar face to people driving their cars or riding the city buses. Someone knows what happened, and we will not give up on our goal to find that person.

We were featured speakers at the annual Missing Children's Day, an event designed to increase National awareness of the plight of missing children, to seek ways to enact legislation to help find missing children, and to keep hope alive for parents and families going through the trauma of having a missing loved one. The Vanished Children's Alliance, Child Quest International, 3 Children, and the Nation's Missing Children's Organization continue to work very hard to publicize details about Kristen and other missing persons -primarily by printing and sending out flyers to organizations and businesses throughout the country. The toll-free number of the Vanished Children's Alliance is the tip line that we have been using, asking anyone with information about what happened to Kristen after work at Spinelli's Coffee Shop on June 23, 1997, to call 1-(800)- VANISHED, anytime, day or night.

Kristen had a very good relationship with her parents and sisters, and was very excited about continuing her chosen program in Industrial Design back at North Carolina State in the fall of 1997. She left a $400 paycheck behind at Spinelli's, and she had paid for her planned course at the University of California at Berkeley ($925) out of her own savings.

We fear that Kristen is still at risk, unable to contact her family or friends. One other possible explanation is that she could have suffered a head injury, causing amnesia or some other mental trauma that has incapacitated her to the point that she can't remember her past, or is unable to think clearly enough to contact her family. In any event, we cling to the hope that she is still alive and we remain very proactive in the search to find her.

Our young men and women entering college are encouraged to venture out on "summer experiences". Companies looking for top prospects to hire seek out the creative students that have shown independence and initiative. Parents of these children realize that they too could someday get a phone call that their child is missing, just like we did. We gain strength as a family through your support and prayers, and we thank you for your kindness and generosity in getting involved in the Search for Kristen.

An 'Open Letter' to those who have information on the disappearance of Kristen Modafferi and/or Kristin Smart.

We all miss Kristen Modafferi and Kristin Smart terribly. I assume you are already aware of that. Kristin Smart, sadly, is probably deceased. We hope Kristen Modafferi is still alive, but either way, she needs to be home with her family. She deserves that much.

There is already a $50,000.00 reward being offered by family for the recovery of Kristen Modafferi, and for the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for her disappearance. For Kristin Smart, the reward is $75,000.00

It has occurred to me that the reason why you have not come foward to collect the money is that you are smart enough to know that the Police are going to start asking you a long stream of some very interesting questions.

Depending on your direct or indirect involvement in either girl's disappearances, maybe you just decided collecting the reward money just isn't in your best interest.

What if you had a chance to collect some very serious cash and never have to identify yourself or answer any questions from anybody?

That is what I am offering.

In case you don't know, my name is Dennis Mahon and I am a close friend of the Modafferi's. I am not a cop, I'm not FBI, Sheriff, Private Investigator nor a member of any law enforcement agency.

I'm just a working stiff who is close to the Mod's and the Smart's.. All I want is to see an end to this madness that is really crushing some very nice people.

Spend an hour or so and peruse this website, you will get a sense of who I am.

You will be dealing with me. You give me information on Kristen and I will deliver the money to you. No questions asked!

You tell me where and when to leave the cash and I'll do it. No cops. You're in charge. You run the show.

I'm doing this because first and foremost, we just want Kristen home. We'll worry about prosecution (if a crime has been comitted ) at another time.

HERE'S THE PROCESS

I have put out a call to our friends all over to pledge a dollar amount to pay you for your information. You yourself can see exactly what everyone else can see..

Regarding this "Pledge" program, everything is out in the open. There are no secrets.

You contact me however you choose. Email, letter, telephone, whatever. Tell me what you know. I will be acting on 0% trust. I'm not taking your word for anything so you might as well deal with that right now.

Once I can verify that your information is solid, truthful and accurate, I will alert all the people who pledged money that we got the break we have been looking for. Ultimately, it will be the girl's mom and dad who decide the information is good.

Once I get the "go ahead" from the family, I will have the money in 48/72 hours and I will follow whatever instructions you give me.

I am making a public promise to Kristen Modafferi and Kristin Smart right here and now:

. "I will not involve the police in this matter."

My motive is strictly to find out what happened to Kristen Modafferi and Kristin Smart.

Here is my contact info:

Dennis Mahon

c/o Modafferi

3610 Plantation Rd

Charlotte, NC 29270

Washington, D.C. Ė Today, U.S. Representative Sue Myrick (NC-9) introduced a bill that would reauthorize Kristenís Act, a law that created a national database to search for missing adults as a result of foul play. Kristenís Act originally passed the US House and Senate and was signed into law in 2000, but it expires at the end of 2005. This bill will reauthorize funding so the program can remain operational for the next 10 years.

ďWe passed Kristenís Act in 2000, because there was no system in place to help locate missing adults. In the last 5 years this program has given families hope that there is a system in place that may bring their loved ones back to them. Iím introducing this bill so that Kristenís Act will continue to benefit missing adults for at least another 10 years,Ē said Myrick. ďA parent should never have to hear that they canít be assisted because their loved one is too old.Ē

Kristen Modafferi, for whom the Act is named, was an 18 years old Charlottean when she vanished in June 1997. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children could not help her family search for Kristen because she was 18, and thus considered an adult. Rep. Myrick took up the cause championed by Kristenís family, and hundreds of other families in similar situations, and introduced Kristenís Act.

The reauthorization of Kristenís Act will authorize the Attorney General to make grants to public agencies, or nonprofit private organizations, to maintain a national resource center and information clearing house for missing and unidentified adults. These adults must be determined by law enforcement to be missing due to foul play. It will also provide training to law enforcement agencies, state and local governments, and nonprofit organizations

xx Modafferi Family Offers Support For Aruba Search
« Reply #9 on: Jun 23rd, 2005, 05:44am »

CHARLOTTE -- On the eighth anniversary of their daughter's disappearance, a local family is lending support in the search for Natalee Holloway in Aruba.

Kristen Modafferi was an 18-year-old from Charlotte who was doing a summer study program at University of California at Berkeley when she disappeared.


Since Holloway disappeared four weeks ago, Kristen's mother Debbie has felt her family's pain.

Now a foundation set up in Kristen's memory by family friend Joan Petruvski is helping Halloway's family.

They're donating money to help send a special search team to Aruba.

Money from the Kristen Foundation is still helping Kristen's family.

This summer the foundation is paying for Debbie and her husband to fly out to San Franciso, where they'll be meeting the new detective who's now investigating Kristen's case.

xx Eight years after her disappearance, search contin
« Reply #10 on: Jun 23rd, 2005, 05:47am »

By REBECCA LINDSTROM / 6NEWS




On the eighth anniversary of her daughter's disappearance, Debby Modafferi will return to California, the last place her daughter was seen.
Eight years ago Thursday, 18-year-old Kristen Modafferi disappeared while attending school in California. Because she was an adult, police waited to begin their search.


"Any parent knows you never give up hope," Debby Modafferi said. "You never stop searching for those answers."


The trip to California was funded in part by selling bracelets through The Kristen Foundation, an organization the Modafferis set up to raise money to help other's dealing with similar problems. The Modafferi family also pushed Congress to pass Kristen's Act, which set up a National Center for Missing Adults.


"They need investigators. They need billboards. They need travel expenses to help in the search for their loved one," Joan Petruski, who heads the foundation.


Petruski plans to send a search team and a bracelet inscribed with the slogan "Expect miracles" to the Holloway family, currently looking for their daughter in Aruba. Natalee Holloway, 18, disappeared nearly a month ago while on trip celebrating her high school graduation.

[The Holloway story] is breaking my heart because it's so similar to Kristen's," Debby Modafferi said.


While in California, Debby Modafferi plans to meet with the new detective put on her daughterís case and put up a new billboard with her daughter's picture

xx Search Continues for Missing College Student Eight
« Reply #13 on: May 6th, 2006, 3:18pm »

OAKLAND, CA (KCBS) -- A missing persons case that has baffled Bay Area law enforcement has received a renewed sense of hope.

In June 1997, Kristin Modafferi a student North Carolina State University was last seen leaving her job at a coffee shop at the Crocker Galleria in San Francisco. She never returned to her Oakland apartment and police were called.

She was taking summer school classes at UC Berkeley.

A bloodhound picked up Modafferi's scent at the Cliff House but she has never been seen again.

Now Oakland Police Sergent Arturo Bautista says a new detective is looking at the case. "Fresh new eyes are always good to review the case and look at it fresh from a different perspective and consider other possible theories related to the case," he said.

In addition a large billboard has been erected at the 9th Street exit off the Bay Bridge.

Modafferi mother Debra hopes that will generate interest especially of a blond woman who was last seen with her daughter. "We have repeatedly asked for this blond haired woman to come forward with any kind of information," she said.

A $50,000 reward is being offered in the case. The FBI now considers the case a criminal kidnapping.

xx FBI Now Heading Missing Girl Case
« Reply #14 on: Jun 23rd, 2006, 09:14am »

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Eyewitness News learned Thursday night the FBI has taken over the investigation into the disappearance of Kristen Modafferi.

Friday marked nine years since Modafferi went missing from the San Francisco/Oakland area in California. Her disappearance has been reclassified as a criminal kidnapping instead of a missing persons case. The FBI's involvement meant a more proactive investigation. The Oakland Police Department was the lead agency investigating.

Joan Petruski, the director of the Kristen Foundation, said she has new hope Kristen will be found. "With the FBI coming in now, it's so important," said Petruski. "Maybe they can dig deeper into those people she was around at the time."
