In The Region:

Cuyahoga County is launching a $250,000 initiative to establish a county-wide missing persons bureau. County Executive Ed FitzGerald says key to the effort will be a liaison who will administer a county-wide web site and two sheriff’s deputies who will focus on missing person’s cases.

FitzGerald says the efforts began before three women who had been missing for a decade were discovered imprisoned in a west-side Cleveland home last week. And he says the accelerated effort is to ensure lessons from that case are adopted.

“It’s a high profile case, one of the biggest stories in the country, an international story. And so there’s a lot of attention. What we want to make sure happens is that there’s a sustained effort, and that’s why we want to institutionalize it. Everybody’s talking about it now, but is everybody going to be talking about it a year from now, or two years from now or three years from now?”

FitzGerald says a key to the new initiative will be that the web site will integrate missing persons information from the more than 60 communities in Cuyahoga County, and one person will ensure that the information is complete and up-to-date.
