"To join efforts with all concerned, seeking closure of tragedies;
as we remain in search of the missing."
Monica Caison is a native of St. Petersburg Florida and one of eleven children. She currently resides in Wilmington North Carolina with her husband Sam. Monica is the mother of five children and the founder of CUE Center for Missing Persons. (Community United Effort)
Cue Center is a Wilmington based national organization that was founded in 1994. This nonprofit organization is focused on finding the missing, advocating for the cause and supporting the families left behind. Since CUE’s inception they have helped over nine thousand families. CUE is entirely donation funded and staffed by volunteers nationwide. To date CUE has more than 10,000 registered volunteers and Ms. Caison takes no salary.
20 years later CUE Center is still growing and striving to reach and serve more missing and their families. In addition to providing services for the missing and their families, CUE offers State Outreach Coordinator positions, college internships and youth mentoring programs. What was simply a dream, name and purpose, is now a nationally-recognized center that answers hundreds of calls for help each year.
Monica Caison’s motivation for CUE Center’s existence was to give victims a voice. She has found that in cases of the missing there is an overwhelming silence, absent is the voice of the victim and the silent cry for help of those left behind.
Ms. Caison has been honored with a number of prestigious awards for her work on the state, national and international level including the Volvo for Life award and the listing of her name in the Golden Book of Deeds.
Her efforts, dedication to the cause and ability to solve cases have been recognized of late by a national television show seeking her out to help families bring home their missing loved one with her guidance and expertise. “Last Seen Alive” aired on the Discovery Network in June and July of 2014 and featured Ms. Caison in several episodes.
She remains as passionate today about the journey of the missing and their families as when she founded CUE. She is a dedicated and highly trained professional in all areas of missing persons work.
As CUE continues to grow her vision of its future remains the same; A COMMUNITY that will one day be UNITED in one EFFORT concerning missing persons and the cause.
