Friends and family of Susan Powell, who grew up in Pierce County, are launching a social media blitz in the search for the missing Utah mother of two.
James Hofheins, one of the organizers, said the three-day effort beginning today will use Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to information about Powell and her picture throughout the Internet.
He said there will also be a purple ribbon campaign and Facebook users are being asked to change their profile pictures to a purple ribbon.
Powell has been missing since Dec. 7. She was last seen one day earlier. Police have labeled her husband, Josh Powell, as a person of interest. He has told police he went camping with the Powells’ two young boys around the time she went missing.
Never miss a local story.
Susan Powell married her husband, whom she met at church, in 2001, nine months after graduating from Rogers High School in Puyallup.
