VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Nineteen-year-old Ashanti Billie has been missing for almost two weeks now, and local citizens Thurday put together a search effort to bring her home.
A group met at 4 p.m. at the intersection of Tallyho Terrace and Azalea Garden Road in Norfolk. Due to neighborhood restrictions, the search will ended at 6 p.m.
Billie was last seen on September 18 entering Joint Expeditionary Base - Little Creek. She was on her way to work at the Blimpie sandwich shop on base but never made it, which many say was uncharacteristic of her. She also did not show up to her scheduled college classes near the Virginia Beach Town Center.
Her Mini Cooper was found near Ocean View in Norfolk, and her cell phone was discovered in a dumpster on Tallyho Terrace.
The FBI's Norfolk chapter and Blimpie are offering a combined $20,000 reward for any information that could assist them in locating Billie's whereabouts.
