UPDATE: The search has been postponed until further notice, according to The Village 337. A reason was not provided.


A local activist group says they have been requested to help in the search for Ella Goodie.

The Village 337 says they will assist the family with advocating and organizing a search team to locate her.

"Black women have been going missing in America at an alarming disproportionate rate, and Ella’s disappearance needs to be highlighted locally and nationally to bring her home safe," a release states.

The family and The Village 337 are asking the public to help in this search. It is scheduled for Monday, March 21, 2022 but a time and starting location has not yet been announced.

On Friday, the Scott Police Department announced they have partnered with the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the United States Marshals Service in reference to the missing person case involving Goodie and a person of interest, Brandon Francisco.

KATC spoke with the Goodie's family on the developments so far.
