Tribal members joined together for a 5-mile walk to Window Rock, the seat of the Navajo Nation, to raise awareness about the AMBER Alert and abducted children. They carried banners, signs and ribbons to keep the memory of 11-year-old Ashlynne Mike alive following her May 2016 abduction and murder.

“If something was ever to happen to another child, God forbid, we would have no way to get the word out,” said walk organizer Charlietta Gray to KOB-TV.

Gray also started an unofficial AMBER Alert Facebook page for the Navajo Nation which already has 17,000 members.
