Help Find Angie Barlow
My fellow Steemians, as Christmas draws near it’s time to reflect on the year and come together as people.
Many of us will be travelling across our various nations and even around the world to spend time with our families.
We should all take this time to appreciate the gifts that life has bestowed upon us. Whilst we reflect, we should not forget that there are some of us who will have an empty chair at the table for Christmas dinner.
It is tough enough when a loved one can’t make it due to work or adverse weather, but imagine how tough it must be if that empty chair belongs to a loved one who has gone missing.
In some ways it is worse than having a deceased loved one because there is no closure for you, only uncertainty and doubt.
This nightmare is a reality for the family of 23 year old Angie Barlow who went missing in Indianapolis on October the 26th of 2016.
In an attempt to get her back they have started a GoFundMe campaign to raise reward money for information leading to her whereabouts.
Here is an extract from the GoFundMe page where a member of her family, Sarah, explains how much they are hoping to raise and the reasons why:
Hello, my name is Sarah. I am a family member of Angie Barlow who has been missing since October 26th, 2016 from the Indianapolis, Indiana Area. I would like to raise an additional $7,500 to add to our current $5,000 Reward Money for information leading to Angie and her whereabouts. That would be a Grand Total of $12,500 for anyone who may possess valid information about Angie's whereabouts. I would like to raise this money as soon as possible so that we can get Angie Home as soon as possible. Time is so precious in these situations so let's work together in making this happen. Angie, a resident of Indianapolis, has not been seen or heard from since October 26th. And her family and friends are completely heartbroken. Angie is 23 years old with much life to live. Angie's Car has been located but still no Angie. Authorities are working extremely hard on the case. Angie's Family and Friends have not rested since her disappearance. Her parents are working and praying day and night for Angie's safe return. Angie has 3 little sisters that adore her and miss her dearly. We will not stop until Angie is home. I realize this is a hard time of the year to donate but if you're able and wanting to help this is a way that you can. If you would prefer to donate money through another way vs GoFundMe, we have a bank account setup in order for you to do that.
The case is also covered by John Lordan in one of his Searchlight videos:
Most of us are lucky - we will have a holiday season knowing exactly where our loved ones are. Please spare a thought for Angie and her family.
Imagine if she was your sister or daughter. What would you do?
