Derek VanLuchene is the President of the Ryan United Organization - Derek has a unique perspective as a family member of the victim and also a law enforcement officer involved in the fight against child predators.


Over 22 years a on August 31, 1987, while playing in his back yard in a rural Montana town, 8 year old Ryan VanLuchene was kidnapped, sexually assaulted and murdered by a repeat sex offender. The offender who murdered Ryan had been out of prison just a few weeks for a past sexual assault against a 13 year old boy.


When Ryan went missing the community of Libby, Montana came together to look for Ryan. Thanks to the community, and the excellent work of a Sheriffs detective, Ryans body was recovered and the offender was arrested.
