This time of the year, you will notice a lot of meet-ups happening in random parking lots. Not just in the Ark-La-Tex, but all throughout the nation. A lot of people call it a "child hand-off" between divorced parents. Several of my friends are dealing with these hand-offs during the holidays and their goal is to get in and out of that parking lot as fast as they can.

Have You Seen Any of These 19 Missing Shreveport/Bossier People?

Hundreds of people go missing every year in Louisiana. While the vast majority of those missing persons cases are solved, some have never come home. That means the friends and family members who miss them are still searching for their lost loved ones, or at least for information on what happened to them. If you've seen any of these people or might have some information that could shed light on why they went missing or what might have happened to them - contact the FACES laboratory at (225) 578-4761.
