Amanda Jones went missing when she was 8.5 months pregnant. It’s been more than 13 years since she was last seen at the Hillsboro Civic Center on August 14, 2005.

“We didn’t think anyone cared any more or remembered anymore and these two wonderful ladies come forward and say we want to do this, we want to help,” said Alfred.

Those two strangers are mother-daughter duo Desiree and Joy Jones.

They had 100 signs printed that read ‘Justice for Amanda Jones and Baby Hayden 08.14.05’ and are passing them out around Jefferson County.

“I just want to help,” said Joy Jones. “I want people to support. I want people to remember and say ‘hey this isn’t fair’ and she’s not the only one. There are so many out there and no one talks to for them,” Jones added.

They are selling t-shirts to raise money and a GoFundMe page has been set up. Their ultimate goal is get a billboard that they think could help bring in tips.

“It gets people’s attention,” said Desiree Jones. “I know when we go on vacation, I’ll see a billboard and I’ll say ‘that looks interesting’ and I’ll Google it,” Jones added.

The new push from strangers is giving hope to Amanda Jones and baby Hayden’s family.

“If my sister is still alive and my nephew is alive and out there I just want to say I miss you and want you to come home,” said Alfred.
