You Could Be Enabling A Predator!
Please Stop writing Found or Located on missing teen Posters, when located safe! Please!
I will repeat this over and over and over until those who help families of missing teens understand this practice is dangerous! Many are continually doing this practice and may not realize just what they are doing.

They are taking missing posters, or photos, and adding "located" or "Found Safe" and circulating online... are literally taking very real teens , who obviously are vulnerable, troubled or having issues that they left home to begin with…(and I'm speaking of "missing teens who left home / ran away from home / and who were located safe) .and are promoting their names, their photos, their age, (many times their date of birth) as well as the city/state they live in … can literally be making those vulnerable teens as TARGETS for those who may be “scouting”, for vulnerable or troubled teens in their community, to abduct and truly bring them into the world of human trafficking.

I am going to assume that thought never dawned on such groups and that they truly THINK about what they are doing when doing such practices. This is one reason the National Center for Missing and Exploited delete posters and merely states no longer in system.

If you're a parent of a located teen, be sure you not allow anyone to write that on your child's poster, or photo. A mere "located safe", typed out in a post, suffices.

Should you find a LostNMissing poster with "safe" or "located" please let us know so that we may contact whomever wrote it to remove.

Thank you.

Family still searching for answers 40 years after boy went missing on his way to the Fryeburg Fair

By Daymond Steer

FRYEBURG – The family of the boy who went missing on his way to the 1973 Fryeburg Fair is still looking for answers on the 40th anniversary of his disappearance. Roger Day’s sister says at the time authorities assumed her brother would wander back.

Roger Merton Day, then 14, went missing Oct. 4 1973 from Porter, Maine. He’s described in an online missing person report, on ForTheLost.org, as a white male with brown hair and hazel eyes. Day has a middle finger tip that was smashed in an accident. Day was last seen wearing a denim jacket, jeans, a purple sweatshirt and sneakers.
Beth Day, Roger’s younger sibling, contacted The Conway Daily Sun. Beth Day, who is about four years younger than Roger, also has a brother and a sister who are a few years older than Roger. Her father, Merton Day, has passed away, but their mother, Anne Day, is still alive.
“This is the 40th anniversary of his disappearance so we thought maybe just to put something out there would spark a memory,” said Beth Day who was about 10 years old when Roger vanished. “We’re all in this together.”
Roger went missing long before a child’s disappearance would create an AMBER Alert as they do in today in child abduction cases. The AMBER alert system is a “partnership” between law enforcement, the media, transportation agencies and wireless companies.
“It was basically kind of like, ‘He’s a boy, he’s 14, they do this kind of thing, he’ll show up,'” said Beth Day explaining the conventional wisdom of the time. “I don’t even think my parents could file a missing persons’ report for about a week or so at that point in time. Things were just different then. It wasn’t considered a big deal.”
Beth Day recalls about a week after the disappearance the police took it seriously and a detective began getting involved. She recalls that both her father and the detective did a lot of leg work. Merton Day would look for his son at the fair every year until his older years.
Detectives with the Maine State Police have been working the case in recent years, according entries in Maine State Police Major Crime Unit-South’s weekly highlights log which is posted online.
“Detectives Farley, Keaten and Hainey conducted a final search of a basement in Porter to follow up on the Roger Day missing person’s case from 1973,” states the log. “Nothing further was found in the basement and the investigation continues. Detectives conducted interviews with family members and updated them on the case status.”
Another entry says detectives and Oxford County Sheriff’s deputies did some investigation on the case in late December of last year. That entry said Day went missing from the fair at the age of 15.
“There’s been no news,” said Beth Day. “It’s the same as it has been. Nothing has come up.”
Beth Day grew up in Porter but now lives in New Hampshire. She declined to identify where she is living now other than to say she’s not in Conway.
Beth Day doesn’t have any police records from the time. She said the detective working Roger Day’s case retired around the time when police files became digitized onto computers. Apparently, Roger Day’s case was lost in the shuffle to some degree, said Beth Day.
She described him as having “auburny” red hair and an average build. Beth Day doesn’t recall how tall he was.
According to Beth Day, Roger Day told their siblings he was going to skip school and attend the fair.
“We never saw or heard from him since that day,” said Beth Day.
When asked if he was prone to skipping school or had a love for the fair, Beth Day said they had family members who went to the fair for oxen pulls. Playing hooky wasn’t unusual for a teen to do.
“It was something kids did on a more regular basis,” said Day. “They would skip school and head up to the fair if they had half a chance, which probably they probably still do today. I’m not saying he’s an angel but he wasn’t a kid that was in trouble before this.”
Beth Day said their mother seems to think that Roger was a “homebody.”
When asked if there’s a message that she has for Roger, it’s that the family wants contact with him.
“Let us know if you’re out there,” said Beth Day to her brother.
A supervisor with the southern Maine Major Crimes Unit did not return calls for comment at press time.
Anyone with information on this case can call the Maine State Police in Gray at 800-228-0857.
