i googled tavia after looking at the "have you seen me" on the redplum coupon circular. i always google the people i see, and try to remember their faces... and say a prayer for them and their families. you never know what might help. she was a beautiful, spunky looking teenager. i hope she can someday, in some way, come home.

I'm always glad to read that one more person looks at those pictures!
Thank you for stopping by, Jessie...
and thank you for taking time to google information on the missing persons that are printed on the backs of those fliers.

Not only do I look at the "have you seen me?" ads, I post them on a corkboard on my wall. You never know if someday you might be at the store and recognize a face that has been looking back at you. Or if someone comes to my house and sees a pic of their next door neighbors "niece". Stranger things have happened....

My name is Tavia LeAnn Bailey. I can't say much because my tears are making it hard to see... but Tavia E. Bailey's mother was Sheri. She had 3 brothers named Jody, Jason, and Jerry. the reason I know this... is because Jerry is my father... Sheri is my grandmother... Tavia is my aunt. My name was given to me as a memory of her. I am 13 fixing to be 14 in July on the 13th. I went 14 years wondering how it would be to have had her come to my birthdays, my band concerts, and to everything else... i might have never met her but i have faith that she is still alive.... and I pay to god that I will meet her before my time is up.... I don't know who took her... but I want her back! I want her back so bad.... I will give anything just to see her for the first time... ANYTHING... please god... hear my prayers and answer them... I love you auntie Tavy! <3

Bless your heart, Tavia!
I've never had the chance to be an Auntie. My sister has, and I feel as if I've missed something. There is a special bond between my sister and her nephew - (my son.)
I can only imagine how difficult it was for your grandparents, dad, and 2 uncles...along with other family members and friends.

I realize our circumstances are quite different, but I can tell you that I often wonder how my younger son felt growing up 'in the shadows' of his 2 older brothers...missing for 10 years.

If you ever want to chat a bit, feel free to drop me a line. I'm around.

I hope to hear from you again, Tavia...

Until then - I wish you a great 14th birthday.

~Prayers~ for you, your Aunt, and the rest of your family

Saw her in my junk mail this evening.

I hope she is alright, and left willingly versus otherwise.

She was in mine as well. I pray she is found. Going forward, I will look at all cards.

I also always google the Have You Seen Me people because I was a victim of a non-family kidnapping 5years ago. Thankfully I was released and I'm happy to be alive. I pray Tavia is found safe and alive. My thoughts go out to her and her family.

i pray that this young girl did not suffer,and one day her loved ones can find out what truly happened to her.How horrible and evil that her family has to guess and wonder what happened to this young person.she is a human being and no one had the right to take her from her home.she had already suffered in this world by being molested and other things in her young life.G-d bless her and her family.

I arrived here after noticing the missing person listing on a "junk mail" circular. I think it's so sad that many of these cases are unresolved, and all too often, forgotten. Thank you for posting this page in memory of those who are missing.

My aunt was her best friend when she disappeared. They both ran away a lot, sometimes together.BUT they always came home. Always. Unfortunately, I do not remember a lot about her. I do remember visiting her at a townhouse once. I thought we were visiting her house. I remember being told that they couldn't find Tavia. I remember me and my mom picking my aunt and Tavia up once. I hope this can be solved. Someone somewhere knows something. Who was the man she was last seen with?
