Local Facebook Group Created in Effort to Find Missing Evansville Teen Aleah Beckerle
The search continues for 19-year-old special needs teenager, Aleah Beckerle after her family reported her missing from their home on Iowa Street in Evansville on Sunday. With no apparent leads on her whereabouts, a local woman has created a Facebook group for those interested in helping bring her home.
Amber Renea of Evansville created the group, "Bring Aleah Home" on Tuesday to serve as a central hub for the public to use for sharing information, or simply post their thoughts and prayers for the family. The group will also be used to disperse information regarding upcoming search parties.
Less than 24 hours after the group was opened, it's membership has grown to over 750 members. A number that seemingly continues to climb each minute. Admission to the group requires approval from the group's administrators, however the response to requests seems to be quick.
