Crime Stoppers advances to social media
For more than forty years, Crime Stoppers has been helping families locate their missing loved ones as well as unsolved cases. The Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers are going one step further to help find missing persons here on the Gulf Coast.
New cold case ads are being put out by Crime Stoppers through social media to help raise awareness through the community for unresolved cases. Crime Stoppers has partnered with local law enforcement agencies along the Coast to solve dozens of cold cases.
Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers Coordinator Lori Massey tells News 25 the importance of expanding their operation. “It’s important for the families because we just celebrated Thanksgiving and Christmas is just around the corner. These families live this 365 days a year, whether they have a missing relative or a loved one that was murdered.”
Crime Stoppers is currently advertising the missing persons case of Mary Loper of Lucedale.
