Search continues for 2 missing Hudson Valley women
A Hudson Valley nonprofit is continuing to search for two missing local people this National Human Trafficking Prevention Month.
Retired private investigator Domingo Ramos runs Hope Alive 845, a search group that helps families and police find missing people.
Volunteers met in Middletown Monday to share flyers asking for information on the whereabouts of Heather Callas and Shaniece Harris.
“I speak to their families every day and they are taking it really hard, said Ramos. "They can’t sleep at night. They contact us every day, and there’s only so much we can tell them. We don’t know.”
Harris went missing from Rock Hill in 2017. She’s described as 5 feet, 8 inches tall, 260 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes, and tattoos on her left arm and right hand.
Callas went missing last August from the Port Jervis area. She’s described as 5 feet, 3 inches, 120 pounds with hazel eyes, brown hair and a tattoo of reindeer on her left wrist.
Police have not said if the women were trafficked, but Ramos said it could be a factor in Callas' case and wants to keep their disappearances in the public eye.
