The family of Alyssiah Wiley is once again taking action in hopes of finding her. They spent hours at Beardsley Park in Bridgeport Friday night looking for new clues. Wiley's mother now thinks it’s a case of kidnapping.
“What mother wouldn't,” said Corrinna Martin, who tells us her efforts on Friday were successful as she continued searching everywhere for her daughter. “And see what they've heard and bring awareness about Alyssiah's disappearance.”
Martin handed out fliers in Bridgeport Friday and looked for leads about her daughter, Alyssiah Wiley, an ECSU student who’s been missing since April 20th. 10 volunteers came to help. State police tell us they were not part of Friday’s search but Martin isn’t giving up hope, “Because I want her to continue to live a full and happy life.”
State police had found a car wanted in connection to Wiley’s whereabouts two weeks ago in Bridgeport. On Wednesday and Thursday family members searched Hubbard Park in Meriden looking for leads there.
“You can have 20 children but if one is not around you you do everything in your power to make sure they are. You do everything in your power to protect them,” Martin added.
State police tell us 20 year old Alyssiah was last seen at a Dairy Queen in Willimantic. Martin says even the smallest bit of information could help bring her daughter home.
“Our whole being. Our whole purpose is to make sure she's brought home safe and sound.”
Saturday marks exactly three weeks since Wiley disappeared. Martin says she’ll be back in
Bridgeport at the same park Saturday at 11:30am to cover more ground.
