Seeing this posting sunshine is the first I have heard of Vanessa being missing .  Has there been any updates of any kiind.   Does any one know where she was going last time she was seen or heard from?  And bits may help.  Have yous tryed getting the media more involved.  Perhaps putting a piece in the page and asking for more volunteers to help with a search, as well as posters up will help.

The helicopters were out in London two days ago and they asked residents of the east end and outskirts to scour their yards for anything out of the ordinary.

Eyeswideopen, I do not know Vanessa personally. I have read the articles in the free press to which I have posted the links. She has a little girl (who is staying with her parents right now) and it is not like her to not keep in contact with family and friends. She has not been heard from since Feb 16. These days most teenagers and young adults have cell phones and they are usually constantly using them so I can see how the family and friends must be just sick with worry. I hope Vanessa turns up safely. I put her information on this site in order to help spread the word that she is missing. I only first heard of her missing the other day, through the London Free Press article. There has not been very much coverage regarding Vanessa.

I'm sorry I can't seem to embed the picture of the vehicle that Vanessa is believed to have entered (it has been described as a grey 2002 Saturn Vue). You can see pics of it at http://www.lfpress.com/news/london/2012/03/05/19460461.html and in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyhoji2wyq8

Mods, if you can post a pic of the vehicle, perhaps it could jog someone's memory who reads here........

There is apparently an informal search (I saw it on the youtube video; the search is organized by one of Vanessa's friends) scheduled for London this Sunday at Oxford and Quebec outside Sam's Food at 1 pm. I hope the searchers will have police support, since the suggestion is that folks will be going door-to-door in the area, which may not be fully safe -- even if there is a good group turnout.

Friend seeks missing woman
MISSING LONDONER

By SCOTT TAYLOR, THE LONDON FREE PRESS

Last Updated: March 19, 2012 7:47am

Julianne Atchison led a group of four Sunday up and down the streets on the city's east side, where Fotheringham was last seen, handing out posters door to door in hopes someone would recognize the photo of the missing woman.

Police say Fotheringham, a mother of a four-year-old daughter, was last seen near Oxford and Quebec streets Feb. 16.

"Once I saw that she was missing and that there wasn't a lot of effort put out right away about her disappearance and trying to find her, I decided to take control and get the word out there. I want to find her as much as anyone else," Atchison said.

That awareness, she added, will help police find her friend.

"Not everybody reads the paper or has time to watch the news, so let's get it out there, let's get people watching for her and hopefully if somebody knows something they'll come forward."

She described Fotheringham as a fun, outgoing person, who would do anything she could for anyone.

Police have linked her disappearance with a silver Saturn Vue SUV with black rims, though they haven't identified the driver as a suspect.

I do worry, I'm a worry wart, but I'm still hopeful she'll turn up," Atchison said.

It would make sense to see if her cell phone has been active recently.  That would be a good starting point.

Why is there such utter silence about Vanessa in the media? She is a mother, daughter, friend to people who must be missing her wildly. Does anyone else remembering reading (in some kind of "reliable" news story) that police had located the vehicle (and driver?) last linked to her disappearance .... the grey Saturn Vue? I was sure I had read somewhere that the vehicle had been located and that its connection to her disappearance was no longer considered.... But I have been searching and searching and can't find ANY such reference. Am I misremembering? I would like to hear more about how/why that vehicle had been under consideration, and how/why released from that consideration, IF indeed I did read of that somewhere.....
