A West Virginia woman who has been missing for seven years will be remembered with a fundraising event Saturday.
Melanie Metheny of Belle was last seen about 8 a.m. July 19, 2006, when she dropped her children at day care. Metheny was 21 years old when she disappeared.
Now the community is coming together to make sure she is not forgotten.
Melanie's HOPE (Help Our Pets Endure) will hold its first benefit to help people remember that Metheny is still missing while helping one of her passions - taking care of animals.
The event will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Columbia Shelter at Coonskin Park near Charleston. The family friendly event will include a hot dog sale, yard sale, raffles, games and face painting for the children.
HOPE plans to hold this event each July to bring awareness and raise donations that will benefit animal organizations and work to save animals in need.
