Update: According to her mother Misty, Valerie is now back at home and safe. I don't know all the details (apparently there was a dude involved, but not sure if charges are being pressed), but apparently Internet efforts played a big part in making this happen. To all those who spread the word: thanks for doing what the media often does not - care about missing black women.
Valerie Carter, Age 20, Is Missing (Indianapolis Area)
Okay so, I know Tumblr has found missing people before, so I’m posting this. This girl went to my high school, was a friend of mine, and her mom is starting a facebook campaign because apparently news stations arn’t telling this story. She is from Indianapolis Indiana but has been missing for two days.
This is from the facebook page:
