FINDING CARYN  Caryn Padilla is our loving daughter, sister, cousin and friend. She went missing on Feb 8th in Arvada, Colorado around 4:30 MST.  She was in the process of opening her new shop in Wheat Ridge, when she went home to get some grab something for her store and was never seen or heard from again. We are absolutely heart broken!! Her little brother and sister are devastated and her father and step mother are inconsolable. WE JUST WANT HER HOME SAFE.  We are starting this GoFund page because we are trying to hire a private investigator to bring her back as soon as possible. For those that know her, this is COMPLETELY out of character for her and something is VERY WRONG. Retainers for most agencies range from $500-$28000 depending on the type of case, so we are asking for help gathering the $20,000 to help get us started on bringing her back home safe and Ok. I, Aja-Noelle (Caryn's cousin and best friend), will be taking the funds and personally making sure that they are distributed to the private investigator that we will hire. This account is to fund any and all resources he needs to make sure she is found safe and sound. We don't know if she's hurt, stranded or anything. We are worried beyond belief and need her safe ASAP!! Please help us reach our goal so that we can find our Caryn, our Bear.
