A national search organization is stepping up the effort to find Krishonda Townsend.
Community United Effort, a missing persons search organization based in Wilmington, NC, conducted the first of two days of large-scale searching Saturday. They set up search command headquarters at the Livestock Association Building in Mineral Wells. A major operation took place Saturday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Another is scheduled for Sunday.
Townsend went missing after spending the 4th of July at a friends house in Mineral Wells. She was last heard from after midnight when she sent a text message to her mother saying she would be home soon.
