Kelly Murphy is relieved that three women who disappeared for 10 years in Cleveland were found safe this week. Murphy says it gives others hope.
On June 13, 2001, her 19 year old son Jason Jolkowski had taken out the trash at his parent’s Omaha home and was planning to walk a few blocks to a high school parking lot to meet a co-worker to get a ride to work as his car was in the shop. He never arrived at the school, his bank account went untouched and his cell phone quiet.
Several years after Jason’s disappearance, Murphy founded “Project Jason” and organization and website dedicated to missing persons and support for their loved ones. Murphy worked with the families of two of the missing Ohio women, Amanda Berry and Georgina Dejesus. She says they ran the websites for both missing women and she had many conversations with family members.
Murphy says there has been no new information on her missing son. She says the investigation is complete but still holds out hope that someone with information will step forward.
