Hi, my name is Debbie Medina, Billie (Rico) Rossi's sister (Danielles' mom) . I’m organizing this fundraiser.

Danielle Rico left her home in Hemet, CA on 8/21/22, telling her mom she would be right back, and she has NEVER returned. CAN YOU IMAGINE how those words haunt her mom and the entire family? One hundred and sixty-six (168) days have passed, and Danielle remains missing. The family believes the worst has happened to her! It's uncharacteristic, that she would have no communication with family or friends. The family has been working with law enforcement and we've reached out to the media. We are at our wit's end and each day is consumed with dread and worry. We need help!

CAN YOU IMAGINE if your child or loved one was missing even for one day? Let alone for almost six months. The mental anguish and daily torture would be equally unbearable. It's an impossible situation to deal with! The anxiety, stress, worry, fear of the worst, and lack of sleep make you not want to live without being able to bring this situation to an end.

Danielle is 39 years old. She is a daughter of a single mom, a sister, a niece and a friend to many. Most importantly, she is a mom to two young girls, ages 17 and 14. Everyone is devastated and heartbroken. Danielle's disappearance is certainly under very suspicious circumstances and leads the family to believe that FOUL PLAY is the only possible cause. This is very difficult to accept.

Hopefully, I'm tugging on your heart. Although the family has been doing anything we can on our own, we have reached a point where we need help. That's the reason for putting this out to the public! Support is needed to obtain the necessary funding and support, to set up a proper reward amount and proper structure to maximize the effect to motivate people to come forward with any information. The money needed is also for search efforts. Any and all expenses related to the search . It's a vast area.

Each day that goes on just exacerbates the feelings of despair the family is experiencing. Thank you for taking the time to read about our Danielle. Please share her story. If you've donated please know that the family is forever grateful! PLEASE HELP US TO FIND DANIELLE RICO!
