SPOKANE, Wash. -- Washington State Patrol has collaborated with a Washington-based trucking company for years in hopes of bringing missing children back home.

The faces of missing children are put on the sides of semi-trailers traveling across the United States as part of the Homeward Bound program.  Those efforts now include children from Eastern Washington.

Angel Wilson is one of 20 missing juveniles to be featured on the side of Gordon Truck semi-trailers.

“She was the person I told everything too.  If I was upset, she knew right away.  It was how brothers and sisters are supposed to be,” said her younger brother Nate Swindle.

At just 17-years-old, Wilson disappeared from Spokane Valley in 2007.  Swindle refers to Angel in past tense but refuses to believe she is gone.

“I know she's alive. I can just feel it,” said Swindle.

Wilson’s face will be featured on four different trucks.  Swindle said his family is optimistic someone will see the picture and come forward with information on her disappearance.

The Homeward Bound program, created in 2005, has assisted in the recovery of six missing children.

Anyone with information on a missing person’s case was asked to call 1-800-THE-LOST.
