A dark cloud obscured Mother's Day for Glendene Grant, who has been on a yearlong search for her daughter who she says, was forced into the sex trade the disappeared.
"You can imagine why today is not the best day for me," said Grant
Two years ago, her then 21-year-old daughter Jessie Foster set foot in Las Vegas where she became a prostitute, and has never been heard from again.
The baffling mystery has touched the hearts of some people in the very industry that her family feels she was forced into.
Carol-Lynn Strachan has been in Edmonton's sex trade for over 25 years and has become driven by Foster's disappearance.
"This is no different than when anybody goes missing out of a certain grouping it could be a fireman and a police officer. Those groups all get together to try to find that person and get them home safely."
Strachan has organized a fundraising event set Friday at Chrome Loungr.550 Clareview Rd.
All the money raised will be used to post a reward for information leading to Foster's whereabouts.
There will be an auction of donated gift baskets of safe sex products, tanning packages, and massages, as well as a silent auction for time with escorts.
Tickets for the event, which get underway at 7pm, can be purchased by calling 221-4495.
No official reports to say that Foster was kidnapped have been released be authorities, but her family insist that the "typical good kid" would never disappear willingly.
"They took the wrong person"
They've taken someone that's loved and missed by so many people that they just need to let her go,” Grant said.
They've taken a family member: She's a tiny little girl that's left a huge hole, and it just needs to be filled again.
"If something has happened, and my baby's not alive, we still need to know."
