“To have someone you love vanish from your life without knowing why they have vanished or where they are, is one of the most gut-wrenching experiences anyone can go through. When Melanie disappeared, we did not know what to do or where to turn. We wanted to keep Melanie’s name and face in people’s thoughts and we formed Melanie’s HOPE. We will never give up HOPE for finding Melanie”
