Hi my name is Chad Boyd. I am fundraising to bring my niece, Rio Boyd home safe. We have reached a point where I think it is crucial that we hire a PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR!  Rio has been missing since 10/17/2022 from Spanaway WA. She was last seen walking away, just going to a friend's house, yet never arrived there. She took only her new cell phone, while leaving her identification and house key behind. She is 21 years old, doesn't use drugs and spends a lot of her time home with her father her dog. It is very unlike her to leave for any amount of time without checking on her dog or having any contact with family. A day an a half later as her father was calling and calling her new phone, that she had just received about 4 hours prior to leaving, a neighbor, while walking his dog, heard it ringing and found it on the side of 400 Field Rd. in Spanaway, less than a block from her home. No young lady would just leave her working phone on the side of the road! This raised huge suspicion, worry and fear. We immediately began doing all we can to find her and bring her home safe. We have filed missing person's reports to all professional agencies, on multiple occasions, we gathered community members and canvased the area with flyers, we have located many surveillance cameras in the area that have the potential to house the footage needed to locate her and have forwarded all information to detectives working the case, we have searched in the nearby fields, spread info on social media in a multitude of ways, did interviews with multiple news crews and had coverage aired on TV with follow ups. We are in constant contact with all agencies and continue to do all these things! We have had very few leads until up to recently. And with these new leads we feel we need to hire a PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR. So this case can get the focus, time and dedication required to aquire and go through all neighborhood surveillance footage needed and follow up on the leads and important information that we have obtained. We fear she has been kidnapped and is being trafficked for sex. And have good reason to believe this. The detectives and police are doing the best they can, but we fear they are currently unable to focus enough time and manpower that this case requires to bring her home. They are spread thin with a lot of cases while being overworked and understaffed. I'm asking for donations from anyone and everyone to help the family raise enough money to hire a PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR to bring Rio Boyd home.
I also want to be able to offer a $2000 reward for any information leading to the arrest of those involved and the return of Rio Boyd.
