When a person goes missing, detectives assigned to the case check all possible leads. Sometimes, those leads garner results and the person is found. Other times, the case goes cold.
In those instances, the Fort Smith Police Department has posted information on its website, http://www.fortsmithpd.org, for all people reported missing in the city and whose cases have gone cold.
The department first posted the page in 2006 as a way for anyone with information on a missing person and an Internet connection to easily reach a detective working the case.
Each new detective in the Criminal Investigations Division is assigned a cold case with which to become familiar.
As of today, the department has seven unsolved missing-persons cases: Anthony Ross Allen, Linda Louellen “Lindy” Reynolds, Verna Sue Hollingsworth, Lori Murchison, Gerald Bingham, Junior Lee McCormick and Norma Alicia Luevano-Garcia.
