Have you ever heard of the ADA's Red Rider program? How about Team WILD Athletics (who so kindly sponsored one of my giveaways last December)?
The woman behind these wonderful programs (and so many other good things done for the diabetes community) is named Mari Ruddy. She has type 1 diabetes, wears an insulin pump, and she has been missing for nearly two days now.
From findmariruddy.com (which is where you'll find updates on the search):
Mari was last seen at her apartment in the St. Anthony Park neighborhood of Saint Paul, MN around 1 p.m. on 6/11/13. Mari has type-1 diabetes and wears an insulin pump. Her phone and other belongings were found in her home. She left in her car, a dark green 2002 Honda Civic, Minnesota license plate #102-LNC, with a bike rack on top and a red Namaste bumper sticker.
Mari’s family fear that she may try to harm herself and appreciate any help locals can provide in search efforts. She may have gone to a place with spiritual significance, beauty or seclusion. Please contact Mollee at 952-406-0081 to volunteer. You can also join the search effort by connecting with this Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/172257126284014/?notif_t=group_r2j
If you have any information please call the St. Paul police at 651-266-5612 until 2 p.m. PST or 651-266-5700 after 2 p.m. and on weekends. Reference case number: 13118370.
Please keep Mari and her family in your thoughts and RTs as the more time goes by, the more dire circumstances become.
