Brian Barton Memorial Fund

12 years ago Brian Barton vanished.  Today we learned that his remains have been recovered.  Brian will be able to return to his family in San Diego and give all of his loved ones the opportunity to grieve and say goodbye. Brian touched many lives with his infectious laugh, musical talents, ridiculous hats and deep love of his family and friends.
We've set up this fund in order to help the Barton family offset funeral costs or make a donation to a charity of their choice.  For years, Brian's family and friends have been searching, going so far as to set up a social media campaign called Vanished Inc in order to help other families share their missing loved one's stories. If you are unable to give, we encourage you to share this campaign and follow Vanished Inc on Facebook to help bring other missing people home to their broken hearted families.
