Update: December 26th, 2013
The family of Heather Elvis has raised funds for the reward for information about the missing 20 year old. Heather's father took to Facebook last night to express his and the families anger and frustration over the lack of new or updated coverage by the media.
Christmas came today like a thief in board daylight, robbing me and my family of joy and happiness, no Christmas miracle no smiling faces, only a pretend half smile from a sister missing her other half. Parents trying to hold back tears and a brother sitting hundreds of miles away trying to cope with the situation but because of his tender heart there is no way to wrap his head around the situation.
It has been over 35 hours since ANYONE from Law Enforcement has been in contact in any official capacity thou dozens call and text and visit that are friends on other Departments who feel helpless since they are not associated with the case but still try and look into as much as possible without messing up any legal part of the case. I am beginning to become not only angry but very much disappointed in the system.
News media looks for the next big story and gives you the cold shoulder with a sympathetic smile.
Looks like its "ratings over on this one lets move on" and "cant solve this one in 48 hours lets find a easier one". Call me a needy parent or call me selfish if you like but it is MY child this time and it
could easily be anyone's at a moments notice. None of us are immune.
Please contact the media, contact the Law Enforcement Agencies and voice your disgust in the way this is done, not only this case but any other one that does not get serviced as it should.
Thank you for your support, we will continue to post flyers, posters, banners, web updates, phone calls and pressure till such time as this is resolved. NO CHILD, NO HUMAN should EVER be left like this and not have an advocate for their safety and wellbeing! EVER!
