John Walsh Commends Project Home Again

John Walsh, host of FOX-TV’s “America’s Most Wanted” and the father of an abducted and murdered son, commended Project Home Again at the Mechanical Service Contractors of America anuual educational conference in 2008, and previously at the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) convention in 2005. He recognized MSCA’s participating members and the program for making a significant difference in the search for missing children.

He reported that the posters of missing children on contractor service vehicles were directly responsible for many children being found. In addition, he noted that Project Home Again is an excellent example of how we can all help with the issue of missing children.

Walsh’s presentations highlighted the extreme obstacles he encountered in 1981 when searching for his missing son and the lack of local, state or national communication or a coordinated network to “get the word out.” It was only through his persistence and relentless determination that word spread beyond his local community.

Walsh has become an advocate for missing children and was instrumental in the passage of the Missing Child Act in Congress. As a result, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) was established in 1984 as a private, nonprofit organization to provide services nationwide for families and professionals in the prevention of abducted, endangered and sexually exploited children. Since 1998 MSCA has been identified as a Gold Partner of the Center.
