Film Synopsis, "Project Jason, A Voice for the Missing"
By Christina Fontana

According to the National Crime Information Center, every three minutes an adult goes missing in the United States. Unlike children, who are federally protected, adult missing person cases are commonly handled by local law enforcement who all too frequently have no protocols or training in place on how to proceed with recovery efforts. Project Jason: A Voice for the Missing (working title), highlights the struggles thousands of families have to endure just because their missing loved one is over the age of 18, commonly putting the case in the hands of untrained local police departments. It also follows the journey of a several family members as they work to pass unprecedented legislation, state by state, that would improve protocols for law enforcement and implement the use of emerging DNA technology to aide in recovery efforts, saving countless lives.

As we follow the journey of these individuals, all mentored by Project Jason, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families of the missing, we also hear the voices of families all across the country who have been affected by having a loved one go missing. Project Jason has become a beacon of hope for people around the country desperately seeking help in locating their loved ones in addition to providing case exposure, counseling for the family and DNA training for local law enforcement. Through the organizations work, all of these voices become connected as one. To date, there is no documentary film that concentrates on the struggles facing families who have a loved one go missing over the age of eighteen, let alone presenting a solution to the very issue. Adults, while they have the right to disappear if they choose, are also vulnerable to foul play just as children are. This film will play an important role in making sure they are given the same rights of protection.
