On May 8th, 2019 Riley Crossman, an exuberant, dependable 15-year old disappeared from her home in Berkeley Springs, WV. Local law enforcement has been engaged in an investigation into her whereabouts since that day. They have yet to determine any credible leads on where or how she went missing.
Lance (Dad), Chantel (Mom) and Jess (Step-Mom) have been positively humbled by the outpouring of love and support shown to them during this difficult time; the community (and surrounding areas) have shown up in a tremendous way to help bring Riley home safely. Her parents have been adamant that the support & love that has been shown are far more than they could ask for, and that they do not desire monetary donations.
However, there has been a reverberated desire from the community to support them during this time, so we decided to provide an avenue for this. The search for Riley has been all consuming for the family. Today marks one week since her disappearance, and none of her parents have worked. They are all entirely engrossed in bringing their girl home, and while they would not ask for monetary support, it will be important to ensure they can maintain their households, both so that Riley can come home to her normal life, and so that her siblings in each household can live as normally as possible while they are exhausting all efforts to bring their big sister home.
Any donated funds will be utilized by Chantel, Lance & Jess for the following purposes:
Search Operation Expenses including, but not limited to: - Flyer printing - Meals - Fuel - Postage - Advertising Fees -
Internet-based programs as needed to support the search - Investigative services if deemed necessary General Living Expenses: - Mortgage - Electric Bills - Water/Sewer - Groceries/Meals - Telephone
To say thank you simply isn't an adequate expression of the gratitude they feel for the support they have already received. Please know that this is but one small way that you can assist them. Your prayers, your positive thoughts, your engagement on social media, and your relentless energy to bring Riley home safely are all of paramount importance to them.
