Missing Girl Search: Wal-Mart to Pitch In

Ashleigh Moore Ashleigh Moore

The search for Ashleigh Moore is now in its third week, and still there's no sign of the 12-year-old girl. Another search effort is underway. Today Ashleigh's family met with some Wal-Mart employees who have vowed to help find her any way they can.

Saturday afternoon, the biggest group of volunteers yet began scouring parts of west side Savannah. Ashleigh's mother, Michelle, was also on hand. But after hours of searching, still no Ashleigh. Today's meeting was also an effort to help find Ashleigh, but in a different way.

"Certainly when you have something local and in your community, you'd like to do as much as you can to help," said Greg Martin, Wal-Mart's general manager.

And Wal-Mart says it will. Right now, Ashleigh's face can be seen a wall at the store, part of Wal-Mart's Missing Children's Network. The manager says the store has more plans to get her face out there as much as possible.

"Put as much information out as we possibly can, either through fliers or pictures, to make our community and folks traveling through it aware as they go on that Ashleigh has been missing for three weeks now," said Martin.

If you would like to contribute to the Ashleigh Moore fund, you can do so by sending your tax deductible contributions to CrimeStoppers, attention Demery Bishop, PO Box 1027, Savannah, GA 31402.
