Summer of Hope Campaign Features Missing Hoggle Kids on Billboards
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and Clear Channel Outdoor Americas kicked off its “Summer of Hope” billboard campaign earlier this month at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Saran and Jacob Hoggle, who have been missing from Montgomery County for almost one year, are featured in this national campaign designed to call attention to the plight of missing children and their families by displaying images of missing children on digital billboards and bus shelters across the country.
The campaign began on August 5th with Clear Channel Outdoor displaying images of missing children from Washington D.C., northern Virginia and Maryland on the company’s digital bus shelters in D.C. and digital billboards in Baltimore. The campaign will expand in the coming weeks into other major cities, including: Chicago, Illinois, Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Los Angeles, California.
Troy Turner, the father of missing Sarah and Jacob Hoggle, attended the kickoff event and said he is not giving up on finding his kids.
“When we share photos of a missing child, we invite everyone who sees the photos to be a part of the search to bring that child home,” said Michelle Collins, NCMEC’s chief pperating officer. “We are very grateful to Clear Channel Outdoor for their generous support in helping us engage the public by featuring the faces of missing children on billboards throughout the country. I would urge anyone with information about a case to please call 1.800.THE.LOST. Your tip could help law enforcement find a missing child.”
