Wisconsin Missing Persons Advocacy, Inc is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization. Our mission is to raise awareness for the Missing by bringing them a voice and supporting the families who are affected by

working together to advocate for the Missing. It will also work to provide educational and informational activities to increase public awareness and to increase public knowledge of prevention measures. 

Wisconsin Missing Persons Advocacy, Inc was officially established in August 2017.  The founder, Marsha Loritz, began her mission to bring awareness to the missing when her own mother went missing in 

April 2013. She wrote to Governor Scott Walker asking for a Missing Persons Awareness Day in 2015, and

he has since declared April to be Missing Persons Awareness Month for the past 3 consecutive years.

Marsha has worked with Green Bay Area Crime Stoppers, The Brown County Sheriff's Department, area

families of the missing, and Lamar Advertising to bring awareness throughout Wisconsin. 

3 of our board members have personal experience with having a missing loved one and know the emotional trauma that having a missing loved one has. 

Wisconsin Missing Persons Advocacy, Inc is not a search team and does not perform searches. 


We are advocates who provide support for families of the mIssing. We connect families with the

resources that are available to them. We work with Law Enforcement and Search and Rescue agencies

to assist families of the Missing. We distribute information about Missing Persons through social media.

We continue to raise awareness through events held in the community; Awareness brings prevention!
