Help Find Asha
Our daughter, sister and friend Asha went missing from Rollerville Cafe in Pointe Arena, CA on September 21, 2015 around 9:30 am.
She was in the middle of a mental health crisis. She did not have ID, money, credit card, phone or any traceable items. She was wearing black skinny jeans and a dark gray hoodie. She was also shoeless.
We are incredibly worried for the safety of Asha. We have been searching non stop in the area where she went missing from and haven't got any new leads. She has been missing for nearly a month.
We are trying to raise money to hire a private investagator. We have ehausted the beneficial assistance of the local authorities and need to expand the search on a national level. This can be a very expensive service but Asha deserves the best.
We miss our daughter, sister and friend more than words can say. We just want to know that Asha is safe and not in any mental turmoil. We miss her loving kindness and quick humor.
There is no shame in mental health issues. We are here with open hearts. Please help us find Asha and bring closure to this nightmare.
The initial Go Fund Me campaign, which raised $6,500.00 in funds, was spent on a Private Detective from Ukiah, who was highly recommended from the Judge of that region. It was later reported to Jeannie, that he had done very little on the case. Jeannie reported him to the Licensing Board of California. His assistant did, however, undertake many hours of work on Asha’s case, information which Jeannie utilised in her efforts.
Jeannie mortgaged her house, to fund this search. A second detective stole $7,000.00 & has since been reported to the Licensing Board of Nevada. She is considering selling her car & house to further fund these efforts to locate Asha.
Through this process, Jeannie has realised that there is a multi-million dollar cottage industry in the realm of Missing Persons. She has thus taken the work for Asha’s case solely on herself & shared only within a circle of trusted liasons. She is making progress & feeling hopeful. She is determined to utilise any further funds raised to directly tracking Asha without the help of dishonest third party businesses taking advantage of her vulnerability.
In her last trip over August-September, Jeannie had over 15 promising leads & possible sightings, which she cannot publicly disclose, due to the nature of this case.
All Jeannie’s efforts have not been in vain. Every sighting, every lead, every clue is a step closer to making contact. Jeannie’s training as an emergency room nurse has enabled her to systematically gather meaningful information in a concise fashion. Her activities in each city are to:
• Go to the police stations & report Asha as a missing person locally
• Communicate with missing persons organisations
• Go to the hospitals & mental health facilities
• Go to the homeless shelters
• Show posters & distribute business cards
Unless you’ve experienced a missing person in your family, one has no idea of going through such an ambiguous tragedy. Jhansi (Asha’s sister) & Jeannie are still overcome with grief at the sudden & disconcerting disappearance of their beautiful sister & daughter, surrounded by such suspicious & cryptic circumstances. They will never give up. She wants to pay tribute to all people across the world who have been so overwhelmingly kind, generous & open-hearted. It is an honour to Asha to give her the love she deserves through these sustained efforts. As the 21st of September turns, it will be a year since Asha’s disappearance & so with this anniversary, Jeannie is releasing this second update for her ongoing work to find Asha.
ASHA IS WORTH IT!
I am assuming that Asha is a citizen of Australia, with a permanent residency in the U.S. I would contacted the Australia embassy , and or consultant here in the U.S, and raise a shit storm about the fact that law enforcement is not doing a dam thing to help you find your daughter. Start at the top .The U.S would expect the Australia gov. to do the same for its citizens. What is the story with Asha friend that was here when she went missing.?They all three had breakfast at Rollerville, she was there if I'm not mistaken. I heard a rumor she not talking. There are lots of rumors. If Asha's childhood friend was here,and she knows something, and she was there. She could be charged as a accessory to a crime in this country. And would not be protected by the Australia gov.I am sorry if my information turns out to be a little off, but the time for being nice is over. And if that girl knows something than she better start talking. Up there in Albion where Asha lived, they call them self the Albion Nation. They are a pretty powerful group. I would get on line and ask them for their help.
Have you tried...um...a psychic?
