OUR STORY

Missing in Arkansas (MIA), a 501(c)(3) missing persons organization formed in March of 2019 after the disappearance of 57-year-old Robert Cox who was reported missing from his home. Robert’’s sister decided after working for years to bring awareness and find him to turn his tragedy into a positive effort that would have an impact on missing adults and their families in Arkansas. We at  Missing in Arkansas strive to stay true to our founding mission to help searching families find hope.
