Search continues for missing 12-year-old girl from Hall County

Groups continue to search for a missing 12-year-old girl in Hall County. It's been over two weeks since anyone has seen Maria Gomez-Perez.

On Saturday, a group from Hall County searched everywhere and everywhere for any sign of Gomez-Perez. Many in the group didn't know the family but wanted to do something to help.

“I was just pushed to come and help search for him,” Melody Gaddy said.

“I have two children, and if they were my children, I would like someone to look for them,” added Melissa Chernansky.

Maria was last seen on May 29 at her home on Westside Drive in Gainesville. The Hall County Sheriff's Office, Federal Homeland Security, GBI, FBI and Gainesville Police are all assisting in the search.

His disappearance hit those who came looking for him hard on Saturday.

“It’s actually a lesson for my kids to know that there are bad people out there and they need to be safe,” Chernansky said.

“If anyone sees this and Maria is out there, I just pray to God that they come home safe and that he brings her home safely, because it's very scary and everyone deserves to be home with his family,” Gaddy added.

Thanks to an anonymous donor, the reward for Maria's safe return has increased to $30,000. If you have seen her or know where she is, call the Hall County Sheriff's Office or call 911.
