Protesters: Police Not Working Hard Enough on Missing Person Case

Posted: Updated: Dec 28, 2012 02:53 PM EST

Protestors marched in front of Charlottesville City Hall Friday afternoon, demanding better police work from detectives inside.

They say Charlottesville police have not done enough to find 20-year-old DaShad Laquinn Smith, who disappeared on November 20.  Smith was last seen on the 500 block of West Main Street around 6:30 p.m.  His family hasn't heard from him since.

Smith was wearing a black jacket, dark grey sweat pants, a black scarf and gray boots.  Police say his left eyebrow is pierced.  Dashad also goes by the names Sage, Sagey and Unique. 

His family and friends have said Charlottesville police are not working hard enough on the case, which Chief Tim Longo has denied.

If you have any information, call the Charlottesville Police Department at 434-970-3280 or Crime Stoppers at 434-977-4000.
