   Ashley Morris Mullis Missing

Ashley's mother's heartfelt thoughts and photo bounty reward

We have been very busy lately, but wanted to share two different items with the public today. One is a heartfelt open and honest letter with photos of Ashley that Mrs. Morris posted on her social media site. We felt it was important to you experience thru her  words what it feels like to have a child missing. 

This is a pain like no other. When a love one is missing, that is a pain like no other. You want to hold them, see them, talk with them, visit with them, but you can't. That is a pain like no other. Every waking day is pure agony, that is a pain like no other. When it hurts so bad deep down inside your soul, that is a pain like no other. The pain I have inside me is unimaginable, it's a pain like no other. Pain, agony, heartache, sadness, emptiness, loneliness, bitter, angry, hateful, just plain death is what I feel daily. But I do have a special place in my heart filled with love, always...Ashley.

$100.00 Photo Bounty Reward

We have repeatedly received rumors that Daniel York Sr. is not deceased, that he has been spotted numerous times in Muncie, IN The first person that can provide us with a snap shot photo that is time stamped and dated of one living breathing Daniel York, Sr who was the last person seen with Ashley and turn it over to us will immediately receive the $100.00 photo bounty reward. Think about it $100.00 dollars for a Nano second of your time to push the button on your cell phone and contact us with your proof.

A word of caution - 5/17/2018

 Being the family of a missing person is difficult enough, but there are people that making scamming others their full time job and families of  missing persons are no exception. After doing some research we thought these words of caution were appropriate to post on Ashley's website for other families with missing loved ones.

Never ever pay any one when approached with offers of assistance to locate your loved one for a price. Secondly, when approached regarding volunteering on your loved ones case the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center provides some excellent advice regarding volunteers.

Know your volunteers. Keep an accurate sign-in sheet with names and times when volunteers are active Record all volunteers' names, addresses, phone numbers, license plate numbers and driver's license numbers. Have volunteers sign consent forms for background checks and ask the police to run the checks.

Use your volunteers effectively.

Good Uses

• Distributing posters

• Asking for donations (bottles of water, meals, canopy tents, tables, chairs, items needed as supplies for search parties)

• Collecting reliable published media on the case

• Going door-to-door with printed fliers

• Ground searches

Bad Uses

• Talking to the media (unless the person is a professional public information officer, family member or close friend)

• Being a spokesperson or contact person for law enforcement 

Additionally the following content was gathered from numerous different articles around the internet and hold validity as to why it is so important prior to sharing a missing person poster on social media.

Sharing Missing Person Posters on Social Media

No doubt you’ve seen these pleas on Facebook before: Share this photo to help find my missing person. But heartfelt messages don’t always have the best intentions behind them, and by sharing them you could be putting the person in danger. Have you ever thought of that?

Thousands upon thousands of well-meaning people share the image, hoping that it might be seen by someone who can help. And if it is seen by someone helpful, then everything in the world is well and good, right? Not always.

Too many people blindly believe what’s written in Facebook posts such as these. They want to help, to be doing something about the problem. And because of this, they don’t think it through. This can be very dangerous.

Missing Persons Are Not Always Missing

Sometimes the missing children in these posts are not actually missing: they are hiding. A family’s secret identity was blown open after the father made a plea on Facebook. Well-meaning people worldwide shared the post until someone recognized the alleged missing people.

What none of these well-meaning people realized was that the woman and children were given protected identities by the authorities after leaving an abusive environment and the spouse. Suddenly, their safety was put at risk, by people who had been trying to help reunite a family.

“The worst-case scenario is that you contribute to someone being beaten, raped or killed. You have to think twice before sharing this type of searches for missing people on Facebook”,

People in protection programs may be running from domestic violence, gang connections, or have been a witness to a serious crime. By exposing them, you leave them vulnerable to the people they are hiding from.

It’s impossible for most people to tell a heartfelt search from a malevolent one, so it’s best to avoid sharing at all just in case. However, if the search originated from a police source, or comes with a link to a reputable newspaper showing that the police are searching for the missing person, then it is likely to be legitimate. Even so, it’s worth considering that it’s a well set up ruse, so maintain a sense of skepticism. You can also check the state clearing house of missing persons for verification.

It’s also worth considering why people share these things in the first place. Some have described this as emotional armchair activism.

Many of the people who share these stories are often:

Trying to help a cause as best as they can from their living room.

Terrified that something similar may happen to their family members.

In some way attracted to the stories of other people’s grief.

Keep these points in mind when you consider sharing. To the people who see these stories every day, the people sharing them start to look like creepy tragedy-addicts who would rather click a few buttons than go out and help someone.

The Moral of The Story

It’s the Internet. You can’t really know what to believe unless you properly scrutinize the source, and you can’t always believe people are who they say they are. When it comes to missing children, you need to be even more vigilant with your research. Don’t just share the sob stories without thinking, as you may endanger people with good reason to stay hidden.

Facebook is rife with phishing schemes, click-jacking, scams and hoaxes. Most people are quite vigilant in avoiding these, yet have a blind spot when it comes to supposed missing persons. Don’t be fooled!

Scammers Set Up Fake Missing Persons Pages to Harvest Facebook Likes

Scammers have come up with a clever way to harvest likes on Facebook. They’ve set up missing persons pages of someone who has allegedly gone missing. They offer bogus assistance to the families of the missing so that they can promote their own Facebook page on the missing families Facebook page in the hope to drive their own visitor numbers up.

If you’re wondering what the crooks do with the likes, the answer is simple. Facebook pages with many likes can be and are sold on the cybercriminal underground market.

Popular pages can be utilized by scammers and cybercriminals to advertise shady products and to lure the unsuspecting to malicious websites.

There are a lot of legitimate missing persons pages on Facebook and they can be of great aid. However, do your homework prior to hitting the share button.

If you come across such bogus pages, report them to Facebook.

Moving in the right direction-5/9/2018

Folks there is a lot of information to be disseminated today, first off, we would like to extend a big thank you to all who were involved in making the upcoming long-awaited 2 property search for Ashley a reality. In addition, we must extend our gratitude to law enforcement for reaching out to the Morris family and obtaining authorization for a portion of the areas what will be searched.

Secondly, during our busy lives many of us never stop to realize or research just how many individuals are missing in the United States. according to Missing Person Bulletin provided by the government published in April 2018 in the state of Indiana alone there are a staggering 914 individuals missing and unaccounted for. (see report)

While the NCIC report validates the report of those 914 missing only one percent or 168 persons have been registered by Indiana law enforcement departments into United States Government’s  National Missing & Unidentified Persons System (NamUs).

In Delaware County, Indiana where Ashley disappeared from, there are at present 32 missing individuals, from toddlers to senior citizens While we do not have personal knowledge about each individual case we do know that these numbers are unacceptable period. As of today, 2 of the 32 missing persons from Muncie have been entered in the Namus data base one of those being Ashley.

Keeping these above-mentioned stats in mind, we are posting Muncie Missing Persons April 2018 report:

If by chance other missing person family members visit Ashley’s website we want you to know you’re not alone any longer.

As of today, we are in the process of complying a proposal for a very specific Missing Person Bill to be present to the Senate requesting that a federal law be passed for the state of Indiana pertaining to missing person Law Enforcement reporting protocol. It is a win - win situation both for the families of the missing and for Law Enforcement there are no losers here with this proposal.

Similar bills have been passed in other states just recently so we have high hopes that it will pass in Indiana as well. After all who would turn down a service that the tax paying citizens of the State of Indiana are already paying for each year. A wise person stated it is the equivalent of purchasing a meal and never eating the meal and allowing the meal to go to waste.

Therefore, with that thought in mind we warmly welcome all families of missing in Muncie and Indiana to contact us and share your story. We know the Morris Family and their supporters will be there to share their own personal experience pertaining to Ashley and Abagail’s case and we hope you will be as well.

As a united team we have the power to address what  changes  need to occur and witness those changes become federal law.

Now that we have shared our exciting news, there is a subject that we feel compelled to bring to light. As of recently there has been much in the way of individuals on Facebook proclaiming to be advocates for the missing. They tend to interject their selves in the missing persons families lives at a point in time that the families are extremely vulnerable.

Once they have the family in their clutches after thoroughly convincing them that they can help.  The advocate proceeds to publicly proclaim to be the spokesperson for the family, all the while without any type of formal education or training whatsoever. These types of social media missing poster posting advocates are the equivalent to ambulance chasers who end up causing more chaos, confusion and pain for the already suffering family.

Any person or organization that derives pleasure out of causing families of the missing additional grief and heartache and publicly posting comments based on premise, accusations, hearsay, rumors and assumptions while disrespecting the families wishes, should be severely admonished by the social media outlets that host the offending advocates pages.

This type of conduct is appalling we are of the belief that no family should be expected to expend their energies on doing battle and defend themselves against wild accusations with ruthless self-proclaimed advocates.

So, Families of the missing use caution do your due diligence and check the social media advocates background out. Speak up and make inquiry to your assigned case Law Enforcement officer to assist you if necessary in making the correct choice for a family.

While we do believe that there are those that do so with a purity of heart and good intentions there are others that have ulterior motives for doing so, always keep this in mind…” An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.

 The house on delta drive- 5/7/18

Prior to Ashley's disappearance the walls within the home located at 1812 East Delta Drive Royerton, Indiana were white in color, after Ashley's disappearance as you can see the walls have been painted black, dark blue and a dark charcoal in color.

A public statement from the Morris Family - 5/4/18

We will never give up on our search for the truth as to what has happened to Ashley and the recovery of our granddaughter Abagail.

While others may judge our actions, we are here to inform you that other families that have stood where we are standing for the last five years and some much longer, they whole heartedly agree with us there is no right or wrong way when it pertains to our emotional responses and our feelings.  

We are entitled to endure this nightmare however we can and no one can take that away from us, nor should they try.

It is essential for our family’s survival to do what we feel is necessary regardless of other opinions.

At the onset we held on to hope that law enforcement would help and give us the mutual respect, trust and honesty that we had for them.

But the situation soured quickly they dismissed our feelings, instincts and gut reactions that we shared with them as to what may have happened to our daughter.

They for the most part refused to listen nor did they thoroughly follow through and investigate the tips and leads that were presented to them.

We could have agreed to disagree and continue as a partnership to find the answers together because at the end of the day it is not about us or them it is about our missing daughter Ashley and the illegal adoption of our granddaughter Abagail.

We have the right to do anything and everything that is within our legal rights to bring forth attention to our daughter and granddaughter. Searching, passing out fliers, podcast, media interviews without interference from law enforcement.

We have eye witnessed firsthand law enforcement following behind us and tearing our daughter Ashley’s fliers down. That is just to name one of the numerous incidents that we have had to endure over the past five years.

We as citizens are taught from an early age to rely on law enforcement, county government and the judicial system to assist us when in need. They are supposed to be fair, honest, non-judgmental and uphold the law regardless.

It has taken us five long hard heartbreaking years to realize we control this situation not the other way around. We have the right to share our story based on factual evidence without fear of repercussion from those in authority that have failed us.

We have the right to be treated with dignity and we need everyone’s assistance in helping us in finding the answers and bringing our loved one’s home.

We have the right to contact law enforcement assigned to our daughter’s case on a regular basis and we expect respect and will accept no less moving forward and to receive returned phone messages in a timely manner and to provide us with updates with open and honest communication.

It is our pledge to keep focused on our mission to our loved ones and we shall never give up searching!

Tony Skinner for Sheriff - 4/29/18

We are taking a moment to thank Tony Skinner for reaching out to the Morris family it truly meant a lot to them after being ignored for so long. A man of integrity and honor is what is needed in these most trying times. He has our vote and are praying that others will see that he has what it takes to do the job and do it right!

Abagail Marie Mullis has something to say! 4/17/18

Do you know me?

Have you seen me?

Did you know that my real name is Abagail Marie Mullis? Even thou you may know me by another name, but that is not my real name that my Mommy and Daddy named me. 

Did you know I am a big girl now, I just turned 5 years old. I have been away from home far too long.

Do you know this lady?  

Her name is Shelia York, but she goes by many different names, Shelia and Sheri are just to name a few of her a.k.a's.

Did you know that she is not my real Mommy or Grandmother? 

Did you know that there are bad people in Muncie, IN and Sarasota, Flordia that are responsible for me being taken far away from my family?

Did you know my real Mommy has been missing for 5 years? 

Do you know what happened to my real Mommy Ashley Morris Mullis? If you do please help me find her.

Did you know my Grandparents search for my Mommy every single day?

Did you know my Grandparents love me and want me to come home?

 I am too little to do any of this on my own and I am counting on you to help me find my way home to those that miss and love me.

Please contact those that can help me with any information that you have.  xoxoxo Love, Abagail xoxoxo

We thank all of you that have a heart contacting us with your tips, leads, and hearsay whispered in dark corners is it helping us to move along quickly. As for guilty parties,It is only a matter of time, you need to understand something today, right now, at this very moment. If you do not step forward you are as guilty as the individuals directly involved. You have went out of your way to cover things up. Never thinking for one moment that dozens of caring individuals would step up to the plate and are working around the clock to find the answers.
