Searching For Sidney Avant

Robert Avant and his family are desperately searching for his missing daughter. She was released from a medical  facility in Martinez CA on 9/17/18 . Sidney was trying to get home. She never made it onto the train. She was seen by employees at Amtrak walking out of the station in tears. She has disappeared without a trace. She is very sick right now and her family is very concerned.

Robert and his family have exhausted most of their resources in the search. We are asking for donations to help the family pay for a car rental, gas, toll, flyers, advertising, food, water and other necessities for their search including reward money.  Any help would be greatly appreciated, no matter how small. If you are unable to donate PLEASE SHARE!!! Please help us bring her home!!!!!!! Thank You so much.
