The FOUNDer of GINA for Missing Persons FOUNDation- Jannel Rap
Jannel Rap is a singer/songwriter in Southern California. She had no idea how
much her life and focus could change over night until her sister, Gina
Bos, disappeared October 17, 2000. While looking for Gina and
trying to gain media attention for her she FOUND that the doors were
closed if there was no scandal, suspect or household name attached to
a particular missing person. Jannel felt that not only was her sister
valuable and worth the chance of being found, but that 1000's of
other missing persons in this country and beyond were valuable to
their family as well. She had to do something. She learned from her
father not to sit around and ask why, but to ask..WHAT CAN I DO?
Jannel strongly believes that we all hold a very valuable place in
this world and doing our best to fulfill that spot gives others the
chance to fulfill theirs. If everyone is doing and becoming what they
were meant to be then, all this world's puzzle pieces fit together.
FINDing missing persons is a puzzle that the families are many times
left to solve on their own. Jannel's goal is to create a larger and
larger puzzle piece that helps to bridge the gap between the families
and educating the public about missing persons in their society and
taking word to the local, regional, national and international public
in hopes of bringing one home. All the while, hoping to help us all
to focus on what we have FOUND in our lives!
