UPDATE: Bedria Williams was found safe on February 9.
This story has been haunting me ever since I heard about it yesterday. Fifteen-year-old adoptee Bedria Williams of Oregon, who came to the US at age 9 from Ethiopia, is missing. Her parents fear she may have fallen victim to sex traffickers, and received a call last month from an unidentified male telling them they will never see their daughter again.
Bedria reportedly ran away from her Creswell, Oregon home January 11, and was last seen in the area of Sacramento, California, on January 19. Bedria is 5-foot-2 and 124 pounds, with brown eyes. She has a mole above the right side of her upper lip. If you think you've seen this girl, please contact the Lane County Sheriff's Office in Oregon: (541) 682-4150. The Sacramento Sheriff's Office has also opened a runaway case on Bedria Williams: (916) 808-0650.
Bedria's family has created a Facebook page to help spread the word.
