Tracie L Post was born May 27. She is the daughter of my youngest sister. Her father is unknown. She was raised by her mother with the support of her maternal grandparents. My sister eventually married and went on to have other children but as she grew older Tracie always felt like a 5th wheel (as many in that situation feel/felt). The last time we saw her was in 1987. The below picture is from that time.
I have searched far and wide, all in vain for her - using Twitter and Facebook, writing on blogs, searching the internet. Shortly after Hurricane Katrina I obtained an address for Tracie that was right in the middle of a suburb of New Orleans. A list of volunteers was posted on the internet saying they would help with finding loved ones lost in the hurricane. I e-mailed one and gave them them particulars - they were traveling from Baton Rogue but would be driving to New Orleans within the week and promised to get back to me. The house was no longer standing, but people who used to live in the neighborhood said they remembered Tracie and had lived there but had moved out a couple years prior. That's the last I've been able to find out.
A lot has happened in our family in the 22 years since we have seen Tracie and we all love her and miss her. We'd love to be able to find her and reconnect. Maybe she doesn't want to be found and that's ok. But we'd like to at least know she's ok.
Tracie - if by some fluke you are reading this - WE LOVE YOU - please e-mail me, go to 'profile' on front page of my blog - and click on my picture then click the e-mail link. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
I wrote this post several weeks ago not knowing that this week is 'National Missing Childrens Week' ....Tracie is not a child but she was and always will be to us. I hope this will help us find her.
For security and hopefully identifying purposes I have left off a couple of items that could definitely identify her. I am hoping that she sees this post or someone who knows her sees this post and directs her to it.
