‘March for the Missing’ brings awareness to Ohio missing persons cases

Local News

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Friends, family, and loved ones of Brian Shaffer and other missing people  gathered Sunday for a march to bring awareness of missing person cases in Ohio. 

The march is organized in Shaffer’s name. The medical student was last seen on April 1, 2006 at Ugly Tuna Saloona. 

“Unfortunately there have not been leads that have led to anything in Brian’s case,” said Lori Davis, a friend of Shaffer’s. “I think that people might be afraid to talk and I think after 12 years they need to buck up and they need to start speaking.”

Davis said there are many others who never got the media attention Shaffer’s case received. 

“We want to march and let Columbus know and the state of Ohio know that we have a problem here and we need to keep drawing awareness,” she said.
