“GINA for Missing Persons”, the internationally acclaimed concert series to raise awareness for those who go missing every year, announces "The Squeaky Wheel Tour," Oct 17-Nov 4, 2006. This worldwide tour will feature several hundred artists performing in 150 events throughout the 50 states and eight countries. The focus of the events is to gain attention for over 150 missing people in the effort to bring at least ONE home. In addition, pre-and post-“Squeaky” events are currently taking place which began September 6 with a Webcast concert In Hollywood, CA. A daily updated list of the events, locations, dates and most importantly the missing to be profiled are posted at http://www.411Gina.org.

The international “Squeaky Wheel Tour” honors Gina Bos, who disappeared from Lincoln, NE 6 years ago Oct 17, 2000 with her birthday being the last official day of the tour, Nov 4. The 19-day tour is the creation of her sister, Jannel Rap who developed the “GINA Concert Series” in 2001, bringing together recording artists from all over the U.S. to obtain attention for ALL people who are missing. Every missing child, every missing adult is an important missing person. When loved ones disappear a large part of family members lives have been carved out, snatched away, and their only focus is to have their missing loved one returned. It is a devastating experience no family should have to endure.

Each missing person’s story is unique, important and as valuable as the next, said Rap. “If someone took your child or your sister or brother, what would you do? Would you pull down the moon? Would you look under every rock? Would you scream as loud as you could?”

Would you become the Squeaky Wheel? added Rap.

The Squeaky Wheel Tour will have its kick-off event in Lincoln, NE on Oct 16th, 2006 and will begin finale events in Little Rock, Arkansas on Nov. 4 with extended events rolling on throughout November.
