LOUISVILLE, KY. (AP) - Kentucky has more than 600 people listed
as missing, part of more than 98,000 across the country bearing
that classification with law enforcement.
And, Kentucky State Police list 162 cold cases of either missing
or murdered people on the web site.
Finding a missing person is difficult for a variety of reasons.
Sometimes people choose to go missing. In other cases, bodies
cannot be identified or just aren't discovered.
Despite the obstacles, some family members persist in searching
for their lost loved one. Nancy Austin has no recollection of her
mother, Georgia Darlene Nolan, who disappeared in November 1976
when Austin was an infant.
Austin has spent the last decade looking for her mom and has
refused to end the quest, despite finding no traces of her.
