Tifton --The power of the internet is helping a Tifton woman spread her message worldwide. Randi Hess maintains two pages on popular networking website MySpace, and they're dedicated to finding missing people across the nation.
Randi Hess spends up to 130 hours a week in front of her flat screen.
Most of that time is spent clicking away at the popular website Myspace. She uses the networking site for different reasons than the average user.
"These children are out there somewhere, somebody has to know or see them, and if they're not seen, you're not going to pay any attention to them," said Randi Hess.
Everyday Hess posts missing people on a MySpace profile, just in case the millions of web surfers who look at the site recognize a missing person.
She shares with others why this cause is so important to her. At 12-years-old she was abducted, and had a close call again during college.
"He tried to pull me into his truck and by me being left handed, and I swear that's what saved me. I snatched off my high heel and I started beating the Jesus out of him with that heel," said Hess.
The feelings from that day are something she's never forgotten, and something she doesn't want others to have to go through.
The mother of four and grandmother of five says her own family reminds her why it's important for others to locate missing loved ones.
"I have two beautiful daughters and I would blow up a state if my child went missing," said Hess.
As Hess sits in her tiny room in Tifton Georgia, she wants the whole world to see these faces. And wants anyone with information on these missing people to come forward.
Hess has two myspace accounts for missing people, one for children and one for adults. She's maintained both sites for nearly a year now.
