There's a billboard in Los Angeles dotted with dozens of faces representing Scientologists who have separated from their families. It reads: "To my loved one in Scientology . . . call me."

The massive message was placed in Echo Park this month by Phil and Willie Jones, former Scientologists who say they have lost their two adult children, Mike and Emily Jones, to a practice known as "disconnection," which believers describe as a last resort — ending communication with people who are "antagonistic to Scientology" to protect themselves from being torn from the religion.

Phil Jones told NBC's Today that his son has told him he never wants to speak to him again.
