MONROE (WTOL) - Facebook is a popular way to get the word on the streets. One college student is using the site to help with the search for Neveah Buchanan.

Her story, her life, her search has touched the lives of so many that didn't even know her. Many people in Monroe have found different ways to help out in the search for Neveah.

For Bridgette Winger, Facebook fulfilled her need to help. "I saw the story. I was sick. I needed to do something."

Although she doesn't claim to be a Facebook wiz, her efforts have been widely noticed. Mike Driehorst is a social networking consultant and says these sites are a perfect compliment to area searches and investigations.

In just one week, 22,000 people have joined Bridgette's Facebook cause. It's a cause she hopes will bring little Neveah home soon.

On Bridgette's site, you can also donate money to the Michigan Amber Alert Foundation. Click to visit Bridgette's 'cause' site on Facebook.
