MANNINGTON -

More than a month since Skylar Neese, 16, went missing in Star City, friends and family continued efforts to bring her home Saturday. They gathered in Mannington for a fund-raising-ATV ride called a "Sky Ride."

Participation cost $10 per vehicle. Riders also brought a covered food dish for a meal afterward.

An auction and 50/50 drawing also helped raise money for the reward fund.

"I remember Skylar from when she was just a little girl, 4 or 5-years-old and she was always running around with curls bouncing around and she was just the cutest little thing," said family friend Jennie Shuman. "And when I heard that it was her who was missing it just broke my heart."

Neese was last seen Friday, July 6, at her home in Star City. Anyone with information on her whereabouts should contact Star City Police at 304-599-3550.
