Fund Set Up for Family of Missing Nelson Teen

Posted: Updated:

One family is trying to help Alexis Murphy's family during this time of need and they're hoping the community will do the same.

Alexis Murphy has been missing since Saturday, August 3. Randy Taylor was arrested on an abduction charge in connection with the case. Click here for more on the search for Alexis.

Roxanne Carter-Johnston says she was so touched by the disappearance case that she had to do something herself. She has set up a fund to help the Murphy family pay for living expenses. It is called "Supportive Souls for the Murphy Family." Alexis' family members have said finding the 17-year-old is now their full-time job and aren't currently working.

"I'm a mother and this story has really touched me, like to the core, and I wanted to do something that would help them that they would benefit from. Not just a reward for helping to, finding information about her disappearance, but to help them get through while they're focusing on trying to find her," said Carter-Johnston.
