Extractions: SUFFER THE MISSING CHILDREN? Taxpayer dollars continue to disappear while children don't. By Tadd Wilson On April 18, 1993, Attorney General Janet Reno approved the ill-fated federal raid in Waco, Texas, apparently because an unidentified FBI agent told her that "the Branch Davidians were beating babies," Reno said. More than 80 people, including 22 children, were killed during the raid. Two years later, Reno wants to help the children again, this time by forming a new federal task force to "coordinate the delivery of federal services to missing children and their families." Those services include a national hotline, FBI investigations, searches conducted by U.S. Marshals and Customs officers, and parcel inspection by the U.S. Postal Service. The task force is composed of administrators from the FBI, the DEA, the Secret Service, the Customs Service, Health and Human Services, and the Defense Department, as well as several Justice Department offices. The vice president of National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), co-host of the attorney general's announcement, will also sit on the task force. While any effort on the part of government to improve performance and allocate resources more efficiently must be applauded, the figures used to justify the extension of the federal government's reach in law enforcement are questionable at best. The Department of Justice estimates that "440,000 children are lost or otherwise missing each year, including children abducted by a stranger or acquaintance; children abducted by a parent or family member; and children who are abandonedthrown awayor told to leave home." It also says that "450,000 children and young people run away from home every year." However, the attorney general's figures describe an epi demic that doesn't exist.

Mann Marilyn became involved with the Oregon Child Custody Protection Association (OCCPA) in 1982. She was on the Board of Directors first, then Chairperson of the Board. The OCCPA is an organization that looks into the Legislation and Bills that deal with Children's Rights issues. In 1983 Marilyn became President of the organization to free up time for the founder, Walt Underwood, to continue his search for his two missing daughters (who were kidnapped by their non-custodial mother in 1979). Walt's daughters were found in Texas, May 1st, 1997, after 18 years. Marilyn became interested in Legislation and Children's Rights issues after being involved with in-field investigations with Stephen Jenkevice, while running National Missing Children's Locate Center, Inc. (the only Missing Children's organization in Oregon at this time and to date). In October 1983 Marilyn was elected as the President of the National Missing Children's Locate Center, Inc. (NMCLC). Marilyn ran this organization out of her apartment in Gresham, Oregon between 1984 and 1986. In 1986 the use of a large building was donated to the organization and Marilyn and Stephen Jenkevice Jr. ran both the NMCLC and the OCCPA from this location until 1989 when the building was sold.
