Help Find Jessica!!

Posted on 08 October 2012 by

I know I don’t post a lot, and my readers have probably dropped off the face of the earth, but I’m begging anyone out there who is reading this to help in regards to my neighbor and daughter’s best friend, Jessica Ridgeway, who has been missing since Friday. This has been heart-wrenching and emotionally exhausting for our family, as well as Jessica’s family. The media are at our doorstep ready to pounce whenever we walk out the door, and we feel like we are being stalked. It is very scary for my two daughters and for my husband and I who knew this precious girl and had her over at our house almost daily to play.

Please, if you can spare a few seconds of your day, instead of clicking through this post and moving onto some other time-wasting activity, take the time to share Jessica’s picture on Facebook, Twitter, and any other social media site out there. If you have a few minutes, pray for Jessica then print out one of the the posters at and put them up in your neighborhood, business, or at your house. If you have an hour, talk to your kids about the importance of stranger danger- again- and how if they are overtaken by an adult, to drop an article of clothing, backpack, or personal item so that investigators can have clues. Label all of your child’s belongings with a permanent marker. If you have a day and a few dollars, buy your kids a cell phone with tracking capabilities. No matter what your beliefs are about kids with cell phones, this could have helped find Jessica if she had one. Again, please help to get his word out. It has been over 72 hours since Jessica went missing and she could be anywhere in the country.

Thanks for reading.

    I cannot imagine the terror you all feel right now. Sarah, we are thinking of Jessica and praying boldly for her safe return and for our prayers to be answered.
