“He gave me the non-emergency number and said, ‘Oh, you can call that and you could make a report through them,'” he said of the officer. “It’s kind of ridiculous. He could have started [the report].”
Wells and her family had recently fallen on hard times, her father said. She was a regular at Maggie’s drop-ins on Wednesdays, but things began taking a turn when Wells lost her mother. She also started using drugs, was homeless and had run-ins with the law.
Despite her struggles, those who knew her describe her as a caring person who was popular with others.
“She was a great person, she was really funny and sweet and a really nice person. She had a lot of friends in the community,” Jennifer Porter, a Maggie’s volunteer, said. “It’s weird that she’s just dropped off the face of the earth. We’re all really worried about her.”
Those close to her are now hoping to find some answers. Maggie’s is hosting a community planning meeting on Friday with a community search on Saturday, after last weekend’s community search was cut short due to the weather.
