Little known Salvation Army program reunites lost loved ones

Submitted by on January 4, 2009 – No Comment

A Panama City, Florida newpaper reported on a sweet story involving Daphne Clark and her brother David.

Separated for 52 years, The Salvation Army’s Missing Persons Service reunited them more than ten years ago.  Daphne is so grateful for the service that she made a generous gift to the Panama City News Herald’s Empty Stocking Fund in remembrance.

The Army’s service in this area of need began in England in the late 1880’s during the Industrial Revolution as young men and women started moving away from their families to find work in the big city.  Families, distraught with worry would often contact The Salvation Army for help finding “lost” sons or daughters.

The internet has made it easier for many of us to find old friends or colleagues. But when someone is searching for a family member that may or may not want to be found, it’s nice to have the staff of the Missing Persons Service act as intermediary.
