Karla Schroeder wants to open the eyes of the members of law enforcement and other assistance agencies about the need for an immediate response when an endangered adult is reported missing.
“I just want to make sure this doesn’t happen to anyone else,” said Schroeder. “I just want to keep someone else from going through this pain.”
Schroeder’s struggle began three years ago when her husband, David, disappeared. She and her family have not seen or heard from him since he walked out of their Brice Prairie home Sept. 22, 2012. At the time her husband went missing, Schroeder had little success convincing officials of the urgency of the situation.
When he went missing, Schroeder’s husband suffered with multiple health issues. The day he disappeared, he was alone in the family home for about 15 minutes. When Schroeder returned home, her husband was gone but his wallet, cell phone and his medication were left behind in the house.
