Location: Downtown - Exposition Park, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
Date and Time: Monday, September 6, 1999 at 1:00 p.m.
Contact: Kym Pasqualini - 602-944-1768 ext. #1 - Cell: 602-399-0630 - Pager: 602-209-8919


Desert Thunder Motor Sports (DTM) and Nation's Missing Children Organization (MNCO) will introduce "Racing for the Missing" at the 1 mile paved road course in Los Angles on September 6. NASCAR Featherlite Southwest Series driver Darrell LaMoure, travels the Southwest profiling missing persons on his #17 Chevrolet Monte Carlo at each race, including the images of 14 missing persons on the vehicle transporter.

DTM and NMCO will be profiling Amy Bradley, age 25, who mysteriously vanished from the "Rhapsody of the Seas" Cruise Ship while vacationing with her family on March 24, 1998 in Curacao, Netherlands Antilles. The parents of Amy Bradley will be traveling from Chesterfield, Virginia to attend the event.

At each race, LaMoure profiles a missing person on the hood of his race car. At the L.A. Street Race, NMCO and DRUM will also introduce "Kristen's Act", H.R. 2780, introduced to Congress on August 5, 1999 by Rep. Sue Myrick of North Carolina. This legislation would support families of missing adults, mandating assistance to law enforcement and families whom the legislation is named for, Kristen Modaferri, a North Carolina resident, vanished from a summer school program in San Francisco, California on June of 1997. LaMoure's vehicle will also advertise this legislation.

"Families of missing adults have not had the same resources available to them as do families of missing children", said Kym Pasqualini, founder of NMCO. "This legislation would enable NMCO to provide services to law enforcement agencies, the victim and the families." Kristen's Act would affect those missing and determined by law enforcement to be endangered due to age, diminished mental capacity, or circumstances of the disappearance, when foul play is suspected or circumstances are not known.

Amy Bradley has received national media attention and the family is hoping additional exposure will provide the one clue that is needed to find out what happened that early morning on the 24th of March. "We are here to provide the support this family so desperately needs and keep the hope alive," said Darrell LaMoure. "The faces we profile are our children, brothers, sisters, loved family members and they should never be a forgotten victim."
