Danniella Vian has been missing for more than 50 days, but friends and family are still holding out hope that she is found.
One of the people volunteering in that effort is a 9-year-old and his mom who have never met Vian.
They say it all started because of a Facebook post asking if anyone had a drone searchers could use. Aidan Logan and his mom Liz had one and now a month later they are helping in the effort, passing out flyers and participating in fundraisers.
“He's constantly talking about her, he wears her t-shirt, he wants her home and so I'm going to support him,” said Liz Logan, Aidan’s mom.
He is teaching everyone a lesson in compassion.
“I want to help get answers for her daughter because if that was my mom, I would be really sad and would try to find her,” Aidan said.
Aidan is putting up flyers, so far about 500. His goal is 20,000.
“I know the family now, but I don't actually know Danniella,” Aidan said. “She's a mom, her daughter needs answers.”
Aidan’s mom is proud of what he is doing.
“He just blows me away, he's very compassionate and very kind,” Liz said.
Vian was last seen in July at the Shell gas station on Government near I-65.
Homicide detectives have the case and are looking into it, but as of now there is no new leads.
“Every little bit helps and if we can stay posting and keeping her relevant then that's what we need to do,” Liz said.
For now Aidan's doing his part to help. Efforts he hopes will reunite Danniella with her family.
“I would feel really happy, really good and probably be jumping around in happiness for like 5 days,” he said.
Liz said the story hits close to home because like her, Danniella is a single mother.
It is important to remember if you have information as to where Danniella might me, call the Mobile Police Department.
