After almost three months, Natalie has been discovered alive and is now with family, so we have removed this episode out of respect for her privacy.
Many thanks to all who shared!
According to Natalie’s family, the money raised from the gofundme was claimed by an anonymous person as a reward for informing the family of Natalie’s possible whereabouts!
This is a happy ending and a successful use of crowdfunding and community organizing! The facebook page, fliers, gofundme, appeals to the public via local media, and constant advocacy on the part of Natalie’s loved ones made the difference.
