In the Garden with Andre Viette
The family of missing Charlottesville man Dashad Smith told city council at its meeting Monday that city officials aren't doing enough to find the 19-year-old.
Smith, who also goes by the name of Sage, has not been heard from in almost two weeks.
Smith's family and supporters were in attendance Monday night telling city councilors it's their job to ensure police are doing everything to find the 19-year-old transgender man and get him home safely. The family wants local authorities to call in help from other agencies, like Albemarle County, Virginia State Police and the FBI.
Charlottesville Police said Monday they are treating Smith's missing person case like any other. Police ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 434-977-4000.
