“She’s been missing for 16 days and could be anywhere so I need to get the word out further than just Georgia. This is a mother desperate to find her daughter begging for your help.”
Meeks’ possible location is unknown, so Sosebee is making sure people all over the country know what her daughter looks like.
As Fox Carolina reports, Meeks was living with her grandparents at the time she went missing.
Meeks is described as a white female who is five feet five inches tall, weighs 120 pounds, and has blonde hair and brown eyes. The police have been notified of Meeks’ disappearance.
The National Center For Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) assisted with more than 27,000 cases of missing children in 2017.
Of those 27,000 cases, nearly 25,000 were reported runaways. One in seven of those runaways were likely victims of child sex trafficking.
According to Kidguard, if a child goes missing a parent or guardian should:
- Contact law enforcement
- Search and secure areas
- Provide as much information as possible
- Ask about an Amber Alert
- Contact and notify organizations like NCMEC
The Hall County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the case, and anyone with information regarding Meeks’ whereabouts is asked to call Hall County deputies at 1-770-536-8812.
