One of my dear friend's sister is missing, she went missing between last Tuesday and last Wednesday in the Pittsburgh area. Right now we are asking for prayers and if you or anyone you know would be willing to help pass out flyers to help find her we'd greatly appreciate that. My friend is frantic with worry, since her sister was supposed to be getting on a bus to come to her town, but never got on the bus, and hasn't been heard from since (she is in contact every day-every other day at most) The police have been notified and a missing person's report filed.

Oh no!!! ((((betrayedfriend, friend, sister))))

Sending strength and positive thoughts to you all.

When my son went missing last year, we plastered our area with posters, and also requested teens to take a picture of the poster and post it on their facebook to alert others.

We worked closely with the authorities (we live in a much smaller place than Pittburgh though, so it was probably easier for us), got his picture and an announcement on the tv national news, as well as local newspapers.

If there is a police media liaison, I would suggest trying to work with them.

Let me know if you would like any other practical advice (post or PM).

My heart is ACHING for the family, I know EXACTLY what they are going through.

((((more hugs))))

Sending prayers that she's found safe.

Does she have a cell phone? Police can request the cell carrier trace the phone.

Just got word from my friend, she started getting facebook messages (shortly after going public on FB and sending a copy of the flyer out) from her sister's account, she had doubts that it was her sister leaving the messages, and three hours later her sister called. She is safe, in a shelter in the Pittsburgh area, and said nothing about her disappearance. My friend, is relieved, happy, and totally pissed off at the same time. Thank you all for your prayers, My friend and I appreciate it so much!
