A free, day-long concert primarily of local musicians aimed at raising awareness of missing persons takes the stage from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday at Freeman Lake Park.
This is the first time the concert, called Song for the Missing, is hosted by Kentucky Bloodhound Seach and Rescue and Kentucky K9, said Toni Goodman, KBSAR vice president.
“We’re just trying to get the word out there,” said Goodman of Elizabethtown.
Scheduled to perform are musicians Luie Brangers, Nick Glass of the local band Vinal, the Harold Hutchins Band and Junell Street.
All performers are volunteering their time and talent, and there’s no cost for those attending.
“There’s no money involved in this,” Goodman said.
Recent statistics put the number of missing persons in Kentucky at about 300, she said. That number includes runaways.
Song for the Missing is scheduled to include opening remarks by Elizabethtown Mayor Tim Walker and remarks by family members of missing persons, Goodman said.
Ultimately, she hopes the concert proves to be more than entertainment.
“Because we don’t talk about our searches, we don’t get a lot of awareness,” she said.
