Concert to draw attention to missing Hoosiers

TERRE HAUTE — Scott Javins has been missing for more than four years, but he is being remembered tonight along with other missing Hoosiers at a concert in Indianapolis.

The concert is part of the “Squeaky Wheel Tour,” organized by “GINA for Missing Persons,” an organization started by singer-songwriter Jannel Rap. Rap’s sister, musician Regina Bos, disappeared after performing at a pub in Lincoln, Neb., in 2000.

Javins disappeared after leaving a late-night party at 22nd Street and First Avenue on May 24, 2002. His parents, Merv and Doreena Javins of Terre Haute, look at the concert as a way to keep their son’s name in the news and as a way to show support for others who have a loved one who has gone missing.

“Someday we will find an answer,” said Doreena Javins. “We never give up.”

“We really have a heart for Scott,” said Rap, whose organization has drawn attention to hundreds of missing persons over the past few years. Around 50 people profiled on the organization’s Web site,, have been found since 2001, according to the site.

Thursday night’s concert in Indianapolis will be at Clancy’s Pub on South Emerson Avenue. It will feature 80’s music performed by Rok Hollywood and Naked Beggars, which features two musicians from the popular 80’s rock/metal band Cinderella.

“We’ve got a whole 80’s night going on,” said Keri Dattilo, a Madison native now living in California who is organizing the concert for GINA. Dattilo’s cousin, Molly Dattilo, then 22, disappeared in 2004 after calling a friend from a pay phone on Crawfordsville Road in Indianapolis around 11 p.m.

“[When] the friend went to answer … the phone was disconnected,” Dattilo said. “After that [whatever happened] remains a mystery to us.” Dattilo’s family is sure foul play was involved, she said.
