Secretary - Shelley Messersmith-O'Dell
Shelley began volunteering to help find missing persons in 2012, after she had dealt with the terrifying experience of having her own missing child. After her daughter was located safe, she promised to contribute something to help others faced with the hurt and trauma of having a missing loved one.
Shelley has an educational background in psychology and law and she has dedicated many years to volunteering as a foster parent and as an advocate for foster children in the court system. Shelley and husband, Jason have 5 grown children between them and feel blessed to have added so many other children to their family over the years.
Shelley states that “no parent should ever have to lay their head down at night, not knowing where their child is, or if their child is safe”, and “no person should ever have to feel the helplessness of trying to locate a missing loved one, all while suffering with the anguish of having them missing in the first place, much less do it alone! I am here to help change that.”
Cherrie volunteers for the children, she had a step daughter who ran off every chance she got and son who also ran away. It took her a while to find him but she did eventually get him home safe. Having had the experience with her step daughter and son Cherrie understand the feeling of having a missing child. She feels that it is the emptiest feeling in your heart. She says, "You don't sleep or eat or function until they are safe". Cherrie loves kids and doesn't like to see them abused or hurt which is why she went to law school. She volunteers, not for her own satisfaction, but for the sake of the children and to get them back to their families. God blessed Cherrie with a big heart where kids are concerned.
Mike has a background in Law Enforcement and Military.
Mike recalls in the 70's when his God Mother's daughter was taken at 12 years of age. Because the child was of "mix breed" it was found that Law Enforcement was less than helpful. Mike's mom and uncle, both private investigators, took on the case pro-bono and the child was later found safe in San Francisco. This incident inspired Mike to help with missing person cases. In 2013, Mike became involved in the search for missing persons when he was approached to help in a case while he was on a cross country motorcycle ride from New York to Washington State. Mike is a metal fabricator, a huge bike enthusiast and family man.
