Joplin Missing

About 230 residents of Joplin are still missing, and north Missouri can help out.

State officials suspect many might have fled the area to stay with relatives and friends across Missouri, and officials are putting out a public plea for help. Authorities are wanting to hear from anyone who knows the whereabouts of the missing who may be very much alive in other parts of the state. The list of the missing is on the website of the Missouri Department of Public Safety. Andrea Spillars is the deputy director there and says it's important all Missourians help out.
