GINA for Missing Persons FOUNDation presents the 3rd International Squeaky Wheel Tour® (SWT), launching October 17, 2008. The acclaimed 19-day event draws attention to several hundred missing people, each profiled by the musicians participating throughout the US and other countries, and is supported by the families of the missing and nonprofit organizations worldwide.

Musicians participating in SWT earmark their concerts or events to profile a missing person(s) in their community. They profile that missing person during their show and ask attendees to take a flyer to post throughout their community. Audience members become official GINA Volunteers simply by coming to the events and posting flyers.

This year's tour has reached across international boundaries that take us from England in 1996 to Dallas 2008. Damien Nettles disappeared from Cowes, Isle of Wight, England November 2, 1996. He is both an American and British citizen. His immediate family now lives in Dallas and continues to search for Damien whenever and however possible. Damien's family recently connected with GINA for Missing Persons FOUNDation when GINA was preparing a Squeaky Wheel Tour® web cast profiling UK missing persons to air November 2, 2008 at 2:30 CST www.411Gina.org . The Internet has become a valuable tool to help bridge the gap for families to get information out world-wide about their missing loved ones.

Texas area missing to be profiled are Roxanne Paultauf-Austin, Kimberly Norwood-Longview, Sara Kinslow-Greenville, Troy Grumbie-Irving, Melissa Highsmith-Fort Worth, Brandi Wells-Longview, and Monica Carrasco-Balmorhea.

Jannel Rap, founder of SWT, has intimate knowledge of the missing. Her sister, musician Gina Bos, disappeared on October 17, 2000. Because there was no lurid or dramatic circumstance, Gina's case didn't achieve great media attention and was soon forgotten by the community. In honor of Gina, and knowing how scattered, broken and lost the families of the missing felt, Jannel knew she had to do something. The concept of the Squeaky Wheel Tour® was born. A musician herself, Jannel used the power of music (and her band, Clementine) to start being the "squeaky wheel" that demands attention.

Bio

The Band Born with a Mission
Clementine member Jannel Rap's sister, Gina Bos, disappeared in 2000. Clementine emerged through Gina's disappearance. Their four separate identities fused into a sweet harmony with a rich blend of pop, roots, rock, country and folk with a built-in mission to find the missing.

Clementine is singer/songwriter Jannel Rap, Dana Woods, Jeffrey Wayne, Robert Parlee and Joe Lamanno. Each member has a long legacy of their own in the music and entertainment industry, but it was Jannel's mission that ultimately brought them together as Clementine Band being a champion for the missing and leading the cause in the annual Squeaky Wheel Tour�.

Although the band tours regularly, each year they join the Squeaky Wheel Tour�, or SWT, which is a series of hundreds of events for nineteen days from Oct 17-Nov 4, where artists all over the world profile missing people.

This band born with a mission set aside their musical identities to create a project to potentially make more noise than they could as individuals. Using their voices for those who had no voice from the inspiration of Gina for the sake of others Clementine tours the country promoting the names and faces of those who have gone missing. Clementine meets the families of the missing at every stop, profiles missing people wherever possible during their concerts, radio and TV interviews, print news and on the side of their tour bus.

Clementine provides a high-energy performance and great music for all audiences.

The Reality Television Series
Clementine welcomes a film crew to document their travels for a reality series, entitled FINDing Gina. FINDing Gina is a story about a band on a mission to find one of their member's sister and in the meantime find other missing mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and children. Clementine band born out of tragedy, rather than asking why this has happened, asked what can they do and asking is what became their mission. During SWT 2007, several hundred missing were profiled by Clementine and over one-hundred other artists. In 2007, thirty-three missing people profiled by Clementine and supporting GINA Artists were found. Over three-hundred people profiled by GINA for Missing Persons FOUNDation and its supporters have been found since 2001. Not bad for a collection of independent artists. Imagine the good we could do if artists from major labels agreed to profile just one local missing person at each of their events!
