Four weeks ago my cousin went missing, but I didn’t know at the time. I had no idea who the girl on the poster was. Not until later in the day when I asked my mom about the the poster she’d shared on her Facebook page.
I learned that Myra Alissia Freeman, 17, is my second cousin on my mom’s side. I don’t know her family all that well. She had very valid reasons to keep me and my older brother away from them. Now that all the family members she was so afraid of are dead, I’m slowly learning how much more family I actually have.
Alissia went missing December 13,2015 at 4:30pm after taking the trash out. They say that she may be in the company of an adult male and that she may be hurt. Her parents are trying so hard to find her.
I’ve been talking to her mom since then. We’re cousins, but we don’t know each other. That doesn’t matter, though. We’re still family and I’m doing what I can to help them.
Please pray to the gods for Alissia’s safe return. I know I am.
