Emily Hershenson: Citizens and Social Media helped find Emily

By now, I think that every one knows that Emily Hershenson, 33, the young woman that was missing from Adams Morgan, Washington, D.C. has been found safe.

In a news statement issued by husband Tom Hershenson.

 “Just got off the phone with Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department (MPD)–Emily has been located”. He adds “Details still coming in…update to follow once we know more…looks like there will be an initial evaluation at hospital to make sure she’s ok…THANKS to everyone for all your help and support!! Have a good night’s rest!!”

Everyone in the area volunteered and put up flyers at every bus stop and store front they could in the Adams Morgan area.  People posting messages on Twitter and passing the word through emails and social sites, and I believe that is what helped in her recovery.

“Thank you to everyone who helped spread the word. In less than 12 hours our post about Hershenson was added to Facebook an astonishing 500 times and tweeted at least 442 times. If I’m ever in trouble, I certainly want FishbowlDC readers on my side – truly a remarkable group of people,” posted Tom.

Adams Morgan citizens, good job.  You inspire us all, as how to help when a person goes missing.
