It has been an exciting week, and it's only Wednesday! Two book signings in two days with two television interviews as the cherry on top of a great time. Why all the hoopla you ask, to promote and share my sister, Heidi M. Allen's updated age progression photo done by forensic artist, Diana Trepkov.
In addition to sharing Heidi's age progression, I was blessed with the opportunity to sign books and meet those who remember Heidi. One even came with her camera so she could post a picture of us on Facebook. Thanks cousin Marilyn, isn't she the cutest.
While enjoying the company of A Touch of Grace owners and operators, Bernadette, Tricia, and Stephanie, we were blessed with a visit from WSYR Channel 9 and one of their reporters, Tammy Palmer. Jack, the camera man, joined the party too. It was a wonderful and energetic time. Before they joined as in Oswego, Tammy did an interview with the forensic artist, Diana. She shared a little of their conversation with me before starting my interview and highlighting Heidi's age progression drawing.
Tammy and I visited at my book signing table about the new age progression drawing by Diana Trepkov for my sister Heidi M. Allen. Heidi, kidnapped on Easter Sunday, 1994, remains missing today and an age progression is a necessary step in the process. There are thousands of unidentified bodies across the country, an age progression increases the chances to match Heidi to one of these, or to one that is found in the future. Tammy shared one of Diana's statements, the drawing is 75% Science and 25% Art. This was something new to me. I've ordered Diana's book so I can learn more about the Science involved in developing age progressions.
In case you couldn't stay up to watch the 11 p.m. news last night, I've posted the interview below. God is good ~ we're thankful for the doors He continues to open to bring Heidi home.
“Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find; knock and the door
Thank you for remembering Heidi and sharing this updated age progression ~ may you be blessed in return.
