A Rally will be held May 25th to honor Oregon's Missing Children.

To remember and honor Oregon's missing children, the Child Seek Network in partnership with the Tommy Foundation and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Team HOPE will be holding a rally on Tuesday, May 25th, 2004.

The rally will be held on the front steps of the State Capitol Building, 900 Court Street, Salem, Oregon and will begin at 3:00 p.m.

The ceremony, which will mark Oregon's first Missing Children's Day is being held on the same day as National Missing Children's Day to show support for families with missing children by joining them together with law enforcement officials and child advocates.
