Governor Scott Walker has declared April "Missing Persons Awareness Month".

This comes as one Brown County woman continues searching for her mother. Victoria Prokopovitz went missing from her Pittsfield home four years ago. Her daughter, Marsha Loritz, has never given up hope.

Loritz teamed up with Lamar Advertising and launched a Billboard Awareness Campaign which started this weekend and will run throughout the month of April. 

The seven billboards are located in and around Northeast Wisconsin and Milwaukee and will feature 25 missing persons each week. Lamar Advertising donated the billboards.

Loritz has teamed up with Crime Stoppers to hold a Missing Persons Awareness event Saturday, April 22nd at the Brown County Sheriff’s Office. It will take place from 1:00-4:00 p.m.
