Friends and family of Jayme Bowen came together on Sunday in an effort to try and find the young mother who disappeared almost a year ago.

Bowen was last seen walking in the broad daylight from one relative's house to another in the area of Parsons and Stewart Avenues on April 10, 2014.

The people who knew her best insist she would never have just left her family. They believe someone took her and maybe forced her into the world of human trafficking.

"Not only is my daughter missing, there are other girls missing," said Jayme's mother, Nancy Bowen. "I do believe Jayme's alive. I do believe I'm gonna find her."

On Sunday, she and others drove through Columbus neighborhoods with Jayme's picture and information on their cars. They tacked posters with her picture to telephone poles, hung them in business windows and then prayed someone who knows something sees they want Jayme home and calls in a tip.

Student Erick Bellomy heard about Jayme's case and organized this effort to get out her picture and her story, so people know to keep their eyes open. Bellomy said he read one of Jayme's last facebook posts where she wrote about her child saying, 'my son is a promise from God I'll have forever.'

Her love for her two children is the reason many people don't believe Jayme would have just disappeared.

"Help find Jayme," said family friend Tamara Bradley. "Jayme, if you can hear us, we will never stop looking for you. We love you."

Jayme Bowen is 5'0" and 100 lbs. She has blonde hair and blue eyes and a tattoo that reads "George III" on the side of her neck. She also has the name "Jayden" tattooed on her right shoulder.

Anyone with information regarding Jayme's whereabouts is asked to call 1-855-BCI-OHIO or the Columbus Police Detective Bureau at 614-645-4624.
