INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (July 15, 2014)– The family of Jessica Masker, a missing Indianapolis woman, is reaching out to the community for help in locating the young mother. They went door to door Saturday on the east side of Indianapolis with flyers where she was last seen six months ago.  She was missing as of April 15.

“Our family has done everything on our own, making flyers, passing out flyers,” said Cheri Edwards, Masker’s mother.

Investigators said Masker had been receiving treatment at a hospital after having a premature baby before she went missing, and her family said she had been beaten up days before they last heard from her.

They have since printed t-shirts with her name and picture.

“She’s 24, but she’s still my baby, and she’s got a four-year-old at home who walks through the house looking for his mom, and sits down for an hour and stares into the blankness,” said Timothy Edwards, her father.

Loved ones told FOX59 they have to organize searches and try to dig up clues because of the amount of missing people in Indianapolis and available resources.

“My sister has never went this long without talking to us,” said Ashley Masker, Jessica’s sister.

“This is our way of saying, ‘baby, we love you. We’re out here trying,” said Timothy Edwards.

Masker is 5’2″ and weighs about 95 pounds. She has brown hair and hazel eyes.

If you have any information you are asked to call IMPD.
