Families with Missing Children Gathered in Scranton for Memorial

SCRANTON — A memorial was held outside the courthouse in Scranton to mark National Missing Children’s day.

The memorial was held at the Michelle Jolene Lakey kiosk which was dedicated in September of 2013.

Authorities believe Lakey was kidnapped when she left Mercy Hospital 27 years ago.

“Even on a national day for missing children, there aren’t many people here. Because its something most people don’t want to think about. And it could and does happen to anyone not just other people,” said Lois Dunham, Jolene’s mother.

After the service families released balloons in memory of the missing children in Lackawanna County.
