Turner Motorsport driver extends program to Canadian group at missingchildren.ca

DETROIT July 31, 2002 - Turner Motorsport driver, Bobby Sak, along with The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) continue their unique partnership in aiding the search for missing children. The program is designed to locate missing kids through exposure on the racecar and in the media. This week they reach out to the people of Quebec in conjunction with The Missing Children's Network of Canada.

In 2001, the program was elevated into the spotlight when a 7-year old Michigan girl, featured on the hood of driver Don Sak's [Bobby's father] car at the Detroit Grand Prix, was returned to her father. It is believed that a tip from a race fan led authorities to Mexico where the child had been taken.

"It was an awesome feeling to see the smiles on their faces," commented Bobby. "We were so proud to have been associated with such a wonderful experience."

For this weekend's Trois Rivieres Grand Prix, Bobby Sak will drive the #93 Turner Motorsport /H&R Springs BMW 325i featuring the picture of Jolene Riendeau. Jolene has been missing from Montreal, Quebec since April 12, 1999. She was 11 years old at the time of her disappearance. Born August 8, 1988, Jolene is 4' 5" and weighs 80lb.s Her eyes are Blue/Green and her hair is light brown. Jolene is Caucasian and speaks French and English. She has a scar on her forehead.

A poster of Jolene will appear on the Turner Motorsport #93 car and will also feature a computer enhanced photo to show Jolene's age progression. She will be age 14 now.
