I was alerted that her name doesn't come up in NCMEC: http://bit.ly/OvX
And apparently only two or three blogs (incl. UU) have posted this alert.
If this is a hoax it is a cruel one. Keep your eyes open for new alerts and details, and definitely feel free to drop info in the comments.
Found on RavenEye blog.
A worried father writes (4/6):
WILL YOU PLEASE HELP ME TO FIND MY DAUGHTER BY PASSING THIS ALONG TO ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. MY DAUGHTER, MARI’KEYANA H. FERRELL, HAS BEEN MISSING FOR THE PAST THREE, ALMOST FOUR DAYS. WE HAVE EXHAUSTED ALL CLUES, LEADS AND POSSIBILITIES - YOU MAY BE OUR ONLY HOPE. ATTACHED IS A PICTURE AND CONTACT INFO IF SHE IS SEEN. MY FAMILY IS BELIEVING GOD THAT SHE IS SAFE; HOWEVER, WE MAY ONLY BE ABLE TO REALIZE OUR BELIEF WITH THE HELP OF ONE OF YOU. IF YOU KNOW HER AND YOU SEE HER OR KNOW OF SOMEONE WHO HAS SPOKEN TO HER PLEASE TELL HER TO CALL HOME. IF SHE DOES NOT WANT TO COME HOME, THAT’S FINE, WE JUST NEED TO KNOW THAT OUR BABY GIRL IS SAFE AND SOUND.

Someone made reference to the Lakeesha Alert previously, not understanding the purpose of it. The Lakeesha alert was created in the Afrospear for children of color, not given the attention or even courtesy of Amber alerts, and national attention. You can click the Lakesha Alert image to download a .pdf organized by the Lakeesha alert creator. Spread the word.
