"Missing Not Forgotten"

Friday, September 14, 2012 - 1:25pm

A Wisconsin woman is using an old campaign to help find missing people.

Missing but not Forgotten-that is the message Stephanie Low's family is sending out.

It has been nearly two years since Stephanie disappeared.

Since then her family is fighting to keep Stephanie's memory alive.

It's an old concept with a new twist, printing missing ads on water bottles.

"I remember the milk cartons back in the 80's. They don't do that anymore, well I found a way to get it out to the public through water bottles," said Christine Reimer, founder of "Missing Not Forgotten."

Reimer founded Missing Not Forgotten after her boyfriend's daughter Stephanie Low disappeared in October of 2010.

Reimer says Stephanie was like a daughter to her.

"It gives us something to talk about it gives us hope," said Reimer.

Inspired by the milk carton ads, Reimer teamed up with Langlade Spring water supplier to create the Missing Not Forgotten labels.

Next to Stephanie's picture on the label is Kayla Berg. She disappeared in August of 2009.

Reimer said, "I hope someone else will take this idea and put other missing people on them. If they need help I'm willing to help them."

The bottles are being sold for 99 cents in various establishments in Antigo, Birnamwood, and Wausau or for $12 you can get a case.

Mary Willcome, co-owner of Backes Food Mart said "It's cheaper than the brand name waters. It's less than a buck and a half and it goes toward something real. It's really important to keep it in the back of their minds and hearts and prayers."

"I get butterflies in my stomach every day and think of the same thing. I try to keep thinking of new ways to get the community involved in the missing cases of Stephanie and Kayla. I will never give up," said Reimer.
