Fenton – It’s been three years since Randa Jawhari, 42, of Fenton, went missing with no solid leads. On the anniversary of her disappearance, Crime Stoppers is stepping in to help.
The popular 501 (c) 3 non profit, Detroit-based organization held a press conference at the Fenton Police Department with many of Randa’s family members Thursday morning, pleading with viewers to offer any information they might have. “I believe somebody knows something,” said sister Naheda. She pledged to never give up on her sister because she wouldn’t give up on them.
Randa’s mother said, “It’s been three years, very long time to wait.” Randa’s father David spoke on how difficult it was bringing up eight children.
“This family is more determined than any I’ve seen,” said Crime Stoppers President John Broad. “This is what Crime Stoppers does.”
Broad said that the organization has extracted clues on cases 10 years old, and received 5,900 tips in 2011, based on their press conferences. The organization also does billboards and flier campaigns.
After the piece airs on ABC 12, Crime Stoppers will run it on their website, and Facebook page. Tips leading to an arrest will be awarded up to $1,000, anonymously. Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Randa Jawhari can call 1-800-speak up.
