KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Dozens of volunteers from the around the metro are participating in an effort to search for missing children and adults in Kansas City. 

The three-day initiative is called the BIG Search KC. It's a collaboration between law enforcement, non-profit organizations and community volunteers. 

Divided into groups, the volunteers are canvassing areas around Kansas City, passing out flyers for about 28 missing persons. 

The goal is to help spread information, increase awareness and hopefully bring individuals, like Kenisha Washington, home. 

Kenisha is 24-years-old. She's been missing since the end of September. 

"I wake up through the night and I cry because in my mind I feel like she's saying, 'Momma, help me,'" said her mom, Lavette Kelley. "I am going to keep on fighting until I find my daughter."
