RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Dozens of North Carolina children, including a college student who went missing after a concert in Raleigh in 1990, remain missing, according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Wednesday was National Missing Children’s Day, a day when authorities reach out to the public for help in finding children. The center also does age-progression images of the children as the years pass.
The number of children missing from North Carolina – more than 60, according to the center – is staggering.
They include children who recently went missing, like Tameka Elliott, who went missing in Coats on May 10, and Amirri Everett, who has been missing from Oxford since March 18.
But the list also includes names missing for decades. Diane Moon of Camp Lejeune has been missing since Sept. 13, 1962 and would now be 60 years old.
Terry Westerfield went to the movies in Fayetteville on Sept. 12, 1964 and hasn’t been seen since
He would now be 63.
And way back in the summer of 1990, Douglas Simmmons from up from his college in Florida to attend a Grateful Dead concert at Raleigh’s Carter-Finley Stadium. He has not been seen since.
