Car Wash to Raise Money

Amber's grandmother, Carol, spoke with Texas EquuSearch today and we have a target goal as to how much we need to raise. Our target goal is $4,000 and we will start working toward that goal on June 27th, 2008. Amber has organized a car wash at Advanced Auto Parts, on Mineral Wells Avenue in Paris starting at 9:00 a.m. She has also talked to several local businesses about leaving donation jars in their stores. I will update the blog with those locations as soon as the donation jars are in place.

So, to remind everyone,

Fundraisers for Rachel...

Amber spoke with Texas EquuSearch on Friday, and learned that although they would like to come up here to search for Rachel they cannot right now to do the soaring fuel costs. With that being said, Amber has decided to organize several fundraisers to help collect donations to bring Texas EquuSearch up here to search for Rachel. In the works right now are a car wash, bake sale and yard sale (all to be held at different locations, we will update the blog when we have confirmed dates). There will also be donation boxes set up in local stores. (I will update the blog with the locations when they are confirmed.) We are also organizing a benefit night to raise money, and are going to start contacting local bands to see if they would like to participate. We just wanted to let everyone know what was going on, and what we are planning. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas, please let us know!


May 2008

Amber has created a Myspace page to help bring awareness to her missing mother, Rachel Conger. Here is the link: Myspace page to Bring Rachel Conger Home

On May 15th, we spoke with a retired investigator, who has been brought in by the Henry County Sheriff's Department to work solely on Rachel's case. He is basically going over everything in the case. He did not have any news for us, but that was to be expected.

The last blog referenced a psychic that we have contacted. People seem to have mixed reactions to this- however, we are doing whatever we can to help Amber find her mother. Whether it be calling in a psychic, contacting a professional search organization or staying in contact with the Sheriff's Department- we will do whatever it takes to help Amber get the answers that she needs and deserves.

If anyone ever needs to contact us, please do so at lksimmons@gmail.com or bringrachelcongerhome@hotmail.com. Everyone, please keep praying for Amber and Rachel.

*Edited on July 7th, 2008- We wanted to let everyone know our updated thoughts on contacting a psychic. It was not a good idea and since then, we have concentrated our attention on contacting Search and Rescue Organizations that actually have a chance at finding Rachel. We still pray that God will lead us to Rachel, and continue to ask for your prayers for Amber and Rachel.
