AVON, Ind. — The Avon Police Department on Thursday provided an update on its search for a mother missing for nearly two weeks.

Najah Ferrell was last seen on Friday, March 15 in Avon. 

Her car, a black 2018 Nissan sedan, was found Tuesday near 86th Street and Michigan Road. On March 21, police found some of Ferrell’s belongings were found near I-465 and Lafayette Road.

Deputy Police Chief Brian Nugent said investigators are “working around the clock” to bring Ferrell home, but they still need information. 

“Somebody knows something,” Nugent said. “If you are that somebody…we need you to come forward. It may be small, it may appear to be insignificant. But, I assure you, it’s not small to this family, this agency, or this community.”

Nugent was joined Tuesday by Ferell’s mother, Paula, who just wants her daughter back.

“If you have any information, if you hear anything, please call the number for Crime Stoppers. Help us to find my child and bring her home,” she said. “Join together and do whatever it is that you can to help us because we are all one family: the human race.”

Avon PD is asking anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers of Central Indiana at 317-263-TIPS. Tips may be left anonymously. 

Seeds of Life, a fostering organization that placed several children in Ferrell’s home, is offering a reward of $2,500 for information that leads to her safe return or whereabouts.
