“We’re not stopping,” said Harriet Rivers, Ebonee Spears’ mother. “We’re not giving up. We are going to continue to look and search for Ebonee until she’s home so, whoever is out there don’t think we’re not continuing to look for her.”

Ebonee Spears went missing from her Wilmington home on January 15, 2016. For the past 24 years, the CUE has hosted the Pig Pickin’ to raise awareness for missing persons in our community.
