There's some high-profile attention to the case of missing 12-year-old Ashleigh Moore. Georgia Congressman Max Burns spoke out in the House of Representatives yesterday, looking for answers.

"Today the Subcommittee on Select Education is holding a hearing on missing and exploited and runaway youths, under which provisions of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children will be considered," Burns said. "This topic is particularly relevant to the people of Savannah, as there's a young girl from that area of my district who's missing for more than two weeks,"

Moore's family is trying to get as much help and attention as possible to bring their daughter home.
