Sofia Juarez was last seen walking out of her bedroom back in February of
And she hasn't been seen since.
This new website started by the
Washington State Association of Sheriff's and Police Chiefs will list all the
missing persons in the state, no matter what age.
They hope that the website
will help gather answers to many unsolved missing persons cases.
Kennewick, like you mentioned earlier, Sofia Juarez has been missing since 2003,
and police say any extra information will help.
"Anytime that we can get a
website or get people to look at this, somebody may have some information eve if
they think it's small. Like that they may have seen something, that infor could
be critical to solving this case," said Sgt. Scott Child.
Child says they
have assigned a full-time officer specifically for the Juarez case.
And even
posted a poster on the side of a big rig truck.
says it is critically important to get the information out to the public within
the first few days.
And hopefully this website helps.

Other missing people with Washington state connections that I have posted on this blog are Cody Haynes (missing from Kittitas), Christopher Kerze (missing from Minnesota but may be in Seattle), and Ashley Martinez (missing from Missouri but suspect found in Olympia). Since Cody is the only one who is actually from Washington, he is the only one of those three listed on the website.

Meanwhile, if you know anything about Sofia's disappearance, please call the Kennewick police at (509) 628-0333 or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678).
