Friends, family and those searching for clues in the case of a woman missing since February of 2010 will honor her in Scotland Neck Saturday.

The event will be held at the Scotland Neck Library at 2 p.m., said Kim Wallace, who has been involved in local missing person cases since her friend, Amy Bridgeman, was reported missing nearly four years ago.
On Saturday, they will remember Jalesa Reynolds who was 18 when she was reported missing.

“We want to remember them all and Jalesa. If we don’t keep them in the public eye, people tend to forget them,” Wallace said. “Jalesa was a very young, innocent young lady. It could happen to anybody.”
Wallace said there will be speakers including at least one person from the Reynolds family. “We’ll light candles. We’re going to pray.”
Information released in 2010 shows a search of IP addresses led investigators to discover the Reynolds used a computer at a house on Cemetery Road outside Scotland Neck.
Investigation also shows she frequented the Scotland Neck library daily where she used Facebook and other social networking websites. After visiting the library she would go to the satellite community college where she worked on her graduate equivalency diploma.
Police at that time seized the library computer and sent it to the State Bureau of Investigation lab where agents discovered she used a computer at the Cemetery Road house.
Wallace said the group advocating for the missing wants to do more throughout the year to raise public awareness of the victims such as provide water and Gatorade to officers searching for missing people or man phone lines. “We’re going to work with law enforcement.”
For Wallace, the continued search for Bridgeman has helped her. “It’s kind of given Amy’s disappearance purpose. It gives me something positive out of it.”
