The community comes together to continue looking for the Conway teen



Conway, Arkansas – This past weekend, the Conway neighborhood pounded the street in an effort to find Tanvi Marupally, 14.

“We can be the ones to bring her home,” Conway mom and organizer, Jenny Wallace said.

In the center of Conway, a group of people gathered for a single objective.

“We want to show the family that we are supporting them, we want to plead with God to give us any tips to lead us towards her,” Wallace said.

Tanvi Marupally vanished on January 17.

“We know that she was upset, she didn’t get on her bus to come home because she was upset about the possibility of having to move, but Tanvi is brilliant, she is kind, and she is a good girl, Tanvi would be home,” Wallace stated.

The teenager has been missing for the past three weeks, and this past weekend, neighbors began their extensive search for him.

Maps were sent by Jenny Wallace and many others, who also asked residents around the neighborhoods to examine their cameras for any evidence of Tanvi.

“Every time someone has checked something, they can just go put their address in or checked a video, put your address in so we can find the holes because that is the most important thing,” Wallace stated.

The teenager’s A-C-T test on Saturday was the only thing she was looking forward to, so her family was hopeful she would go.

Morning arrived and left… not a trace of Tanvi.

“You know it seems illogical, but we just had so much hope that maybe she would show up this morning because that’s who she is and it’s just been a hard day,” Wallace stated.

Wallace claimed that the more gatherings they attend, the closer they will be to Wallace’s family reunion.

“Any tips whatsoever, we just are desperate for the community to help us find her,” Wallace said.

Wallace remarked that she exhorts everyone to report any suspicious activity.

If so, make an instant call to the Conway Police Department.
