December 2004 - ProjectJason.org has added Patricia to their "Adopt a Missing Person Program."  The program encourages people to "adopt" Patricia (or other Missing Persons); at which time the adopter will be mailed buttons and a bio on Patricia (or other Missing Persons) enabling them to become more familiar with Patricia (or other Missing Persons) and to talk up her (their) disappearance.
December 16-31, 2004 - ProjectJason.org has added Patricia to their "18 Wheel Angel Program."  For this two week period, 12/16/2004-12/31/2004, all the 18 Wheel Angels across the country will download and print out Patricia's 18WA poster.  They will take them on their cross country travels and post as many as possible.
