A tractor trailer has been plastered with the image of a girl missing since last spring in hopes that the ‘moving billboard’ will help in locating the lost child.
Asia Wilbon has been missing since February 13, 2020.
The truck is a collaboration between Kam-Way Transportation, Washington State Patrol, and the Kent Police Department in an attempt to increase exposure for Asia’s case. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, one in six missing children are recovered thanks to the help of a publicly displayed photo.
Wibon was 16 when she went missing last spring. She is an African American girl who stands 5 feet, 2 inches tall, weighs 130 pounds, has black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a black jacket and jeans or dark colored pants.
Detectives have followed up on all possible leads since her disappearance in 2020, but are hoping that this rolling billboard will lead to more tips.
“We do not give up on cold cases and we will not give up on Asia,” Kent Police said in a statement according to the Kent Reporter.
Police ask that if anyone sees Wilbon, call 911 and reference Kent Police case number 20-2105. People can also call the Kent Police non-emergency number at 253-852-2121 with information.
