Continuing the Efforts At Locating Monika Hunter: The Police Are On It!

Monika is still missing but the police are actively pursuing the case in looking for her! The blog posts and updates across social media like Facebook and Twitter has helped bring much-needed attention to this case. The power of the keyboard in getting the word out shows we do have a certain amount of power to affect positive change and spur acts of justice. I got a reply from Monika's sister Renee Jennings yesterday on Twitter and this is the comment she left at the WAOD post to the readers:
Thank you everyone for your prayers and concern. I never imagined do many people would join in the effort to help find my sister and I have so much gratitude. I spoke with Detective Vessels today and he has assured me they will try to locate her. We must keep praying and reposting. Word of mouth brings kids home. I honestly believe this. Thanks again.
Let's keep sending positive thoughts and messages.

I live in the DC area, but in Anne Arundel Co of Maryland (near Baltimore). I'm in the next county over and maybe 30 minutes or so from Heights and hadn't heard of it until early this week from you, Faith and WAOD.

As PPR_Scribe said it, thanks for putting out the "Ebony Alert"!

Sassy J: Monika went missing Aug 3rd that's one reason you hadn't heard about it. Her sister emailed another blogger where I got a forwarded message. Then I just posted here, at WAOD and on Twitter. We could do this (or try to set up some network of our own) where we put out alerts about missing black kids ourselves across all social media platforms.
