It has been nearly eight months since a Lebanon County woman disappeared but Kortne Stouffer's family refuses to give up, and they are getting the word out in new ways.
On Saturday, they will be taking to the streets of Harrisburg, during the Saint Patrick's Day parade to publicize Stouffer's disappearance.
The Stouffers and volunteers will be handing out flyers along the parade route. There will have 18,000 flyers, donated by the Mechanicsburg company Hot Frog.
Hot Frog also teamed up with abc27 News to create and air a PSA about Kortne Stouffer's disappearance. That commercial will air throughout the parade.
Several other businesses across the midstate are helping the KortneStouffers get the word out about Kortne Stouffer. Her family is overwhelmed by the support.
"Oh it's wonderful. [The PSA has] been running and we've had people calling and e-mailing and very excited about keeping her face in the news and trying to get her to come home," said Wendy Stouffer, Kortne Stouffer's mom. "If she was here, she wouldn't like all this attention! If she's somewhere that she needs to get out of or she needs to be found, she would really be happy with us doing whatever it takes to get her home."
Kortne Stouffer went missing from her Palmyra home on July 29, 2012 after a night out in Harrisburg with friends.
