Tuesday, July 17
Benton Event Center

The Attorney General’s office, in partnership with other law enforcement agencies and the Morgan Nick Foundation, will provide training sessions from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the 7th annual Never Forgotten — Arkansas Takes Action event, which is intended to raise awareness of issues surrounding missing persons and to honor Arkansas’s missing children and adults.

Training sessions will include:

  • Maci Lilly Case Study: Derek VanLuchene, CART Program coordinator with the National Criminal Justice Training Center – AMBER Alert Training and Technical Assistance Program, as well as president and founder of Ryan United, will present the case study of 4-year-old Maci Lilly. Maci, who was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, was abducted from a playground in Montana in February 2016. Maci’s disappearance led to a statewide Amber Alert and a successful recovery. VanLuchene will discuss working with child witnesses and how to locate resources in an active search and recovery.
  • Using Biometrics to Identify the Missing: Sarah Krebs, a detective sergeant – forensic artist with the Michigan State Police, will explain how her evidence-based drawings and three-dimensional reconstructions aid in the investigation of unidentified remains, the apprehension of suspects, and the resolution of missing person cases.

Following the training, participants are invited to a luncheon ceremony to begin at noon to recognize families of missing children and adults and law enforcement officers who are devoted to solving missing persons cases.

This course is expected to qualify for three hours of Continuing Law Enforcement Education (CLEST).
