PARENTS, DESPERATE TO SPEAK WITH THEIR DISCONNECTED CHILDREN, ERECT BILLBOARD IN LAST DITCH ATTEMPT TO RECONNECT WITH THEM:

After decades, Willie and Phil Jones left the church of Scientology and as a consequence haven't been able to speak to their daughter Emily or their son Mike for over two years. They've been "disconnected", which is what Scientologists call their choice to cut off communication with people outside the church.

"We know what the conditioning is and what goes on there. It is a form of hypnosis. We've experienced it, we went through it. We were in that mindset for years," Phil Jones said.

Willie and Phil decided to reach out to their children through a billboard after they raised enough money to keep it on display for one month. The billboard was posted on busy Glendale Boulevard and it's estimated that 1 million people will see it. It reads, "To my loved one in Scientology...Call me."

The parents said they decided to post the billboard after conventional methods for reaching their children failed. "Calling every week, showing up at the doorstep of the church, and we've been flat out told that we're not welcomed," Willie Jones said.
