Missing Woman's Family Pleas for Help

Thirty-year-old Ali Gilmore disappeared one month ago. There's still no sign of the Tallahassee woman even with the search for her going national this week.

However, the Tallahassee Police Department's OFC John Newland says the national search is turning up a few leads, some as far as Fresno, and they were following another lead in Atlanta on Friday.

As of now, they still can't find Ali. Her family met with Tallahassee Mayor John Marks and Riviera Beach Mayor Michael Brown, who is also Ali's cousin. They are asking people to dig deep in their memories; maybe they've seen Ali since she went missing one month ago or heard something.

Laurvetta and Carl McLawrence say, "All I can ask the community is to keep on giving the support you've been giving us; please, please, someone who's out there who knows something, please come forward."

Mayor Michael Brown says, "Something gravely has happened to her and we want to do all we can to hopefully rescue her, find her or do what we need to do to bring closure to this situation."

Ali's parents and her cousin say it still doesn't make sense that Ali, who was four months pregnant, would just disappear. They say she was very dedicated not just to her family, but to her jobs with the Florida Department of Health and Publix, where she had worked since high school.

There will be a candlelight vigil Saturday night at seven at Ali's Wilson Green home in Tallahassee.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Tallahassee Police Department. You can also put in an anonymous tip by calling Crime Stoppers at 850-891-HELP.
