In 1957, when Jeff Daly was 6 years old, his little sister, Molly, disappeared. Every day, he would ask his parents, "Where's Molly?" And, every time he would get the same response: "Stop asking about Molly." More than forty years later, he learned that his parents had sent Molly to a state institution just before her third birthday. He set out to find her and created a film documenting his journey.

On Wednesday, Oct. 20, Jeff and Cindy Daly will be sharing this moving story at the 10:00 a.m. Augustana Chapel service. They will also be showing their Where's Molly award-winning documentary at 3:00-5:00 p.m. and again at 7:00 -9:00 p.m. in the Kresge Auditorium. Following the 1-hour, 15-minute screening, there will be an opportunity to engage in a question-and-answer discussion with Jeff and Cindy Daly.

Jeff Daly's search for his sister, Molly, who had been sent away 50 years ago to the Oregon State Institution for the Feeble-Minded has led to a new Oregon law helping others to reunite with long-lost family members.
