Our Missing Family
Three of our Board Members have Missing Loved Ones.
Here are their stories.
Connie Gillis, Daughter
of Missing David Dodge
I am Connie Gillis, daughter of David C. Dodge, missing since 4/2/1983 from
Frederic, Wisconsin. My dad has been missing for 37 years, he is one of the long
term missing cases.
I felt alone for 34 of those years, not knowing anyone who shared this
experience. Then one day in fall of 2017, I made a comment on a FB post of a
missing person from another state. One of the WMPA board members also
commented that there was a Missing Persons group in Wisconsin and she gave
me the information. I broke down and cried knowing I was going to have contact
with others that were going through the same thing.
It's only been three years and this wonderful group is like family to me. Feels like
I've known them a life time. I was very honored when I was asked to be on the
board of directors in August of 2020. I hope to help give the missing a voice and
raise awareness to this tragic event in many families lives.
Missing since April 2nd, 1983
