Marie J. Carlson has been missing from Ft Walton, FL since October of 2011. Foul play is suspected but the police have been unable to recover her body or build a strong enough case against a suspect up to this point.
She is the Mother of two beautiful daughters, Paris, 8, and Grace, 2, who now will grow up without their Mother to guide them and provide her love. She was a beautiful person who touched so many lives with her empathy and unconditional love. You can see the love for her by visiting her Missing Person Facebook page at the following link: www.facebook.com/pages/Missing-Person-Marie-J-C...
Her family would like to set up a fund to accomplish two things. First to offer a reward for any information that leads to the capture and conviction of the person responsible for her disappearance and likely death. The reward amount we would like to fund is $10,000, but we will accept any donations short of that amount that will be used as a reward.
Second, any money that is raised beyond that amount will go into a fund to provide a trust for her daughters. The reward fund will be set up to be administered by three people including non-family member, a family member, and a member of the law enforcement agency working the case. Very strict guidelines will be followed. Once the reward fund is fully funded it will be placed into a separate account released only under very specific conditions including the condition that no one involved in the crime may claim the reward and a law enforcement official will determine when the reward is released based on predetermined criteria.
All money donated beyond the reward amount will be placed into a different trust account for her children. Any money removed from either account will require two signatures for release. Should the reward fail to be claimed by a determined date, the funds for the reward will be reverted to the trust fund for her daughters.
Please help us find the person or persons responsible for this heinous act and the loss of a loving, beautiful soul. Marie never put herself first. We need to put her first now.
We believe a reward may motivate someone who is reluctant to share information to come forward with key information that will help solve her disappearance.
If you are unable to donate funds, please share her missing person page on your facebook and get the word out.
Thank you for your help.
The family of Marie
