Erin Pospisil in 2001

Nine years ago today, Erin Kay Pospisil vanished without a trace from Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The 15-year-old Metro High School freshman was last seen getting into a dark-colored Chevrolet Cavalier with tinted rear windows in the 100 block of 12th Street SE on Sunday, June 3, 2001. Although Erin’s friends didn’t recognize the car, Erin seemed to know its occupants and climbed in without reservation.

    For what it is worth to Erin’s family and friends, I remember. I care.

    I am just an Iowa mom, who can only imagine the horror of not knowing where a precious child is.

    I offer prayers that someday you will have answers.

      Thanks so much for your comment, Teri. I’m an Iowa mom too, and know exactly what you mean. Most of us couldn’t imagine facing a single day with what Carolyn and Erin’s family have had to face for thousands of those days. As time marches by and friends and neighbors wonder if to speak or what to say, yours convey it all: I remember. I care. They are healing words. Thank you again for writing.
