COVINGTON, Ky. - Friends and family of Paige Johnson held a rally to raise money and to show support for Paige's mother Donna.
"It shows a lot of people care about Paige. She was a very sweet person. Everyone here loves her and we all want her to come home," said Donna Johnson.
The rally was held at Paint Yourself Silly on Decoursey Pike in Covington.
"Everybody's coming together for one cause and that's to find her and to show the family that we support them and I think it's working," said Lisa Little the owner of Paint Yourself Silly and the event organizer.
Saturday marks one month since Paige Johnson's disappearance.
"I fear the negative, really bad," said Carmen Klein Paige's friend.
"I wake up every morning and think about the negative but I try to put myself more positive," said Klein.
Across the street a volunteer who would only give us her first name explained why she was asking passing cars to donate money for the Paige Johnson fund.
"Because I have children and if one of my children were missing I'd want people out here doing this for me too," said Lisa.
More than 100 searchers combed through East Fork State Park earlier this week for the 17-year-old, but found nothing.
"Pings" from Jacob Bumpass' cell phone from a cell tower in East Fork State Park suggested to investigators that he was not in Northern Kentucky on the night of Johnson's disappearance as he had said.
"They have to know something and the longer they don't talk the more pain we have to go through and I just wish they would just tell us what happened to Paige because they have to know," said Donna Johnson wiping tears from her eyes.
A non-profit organization is also offering a reward for information leading to Johnson's whereabouts.
The Northern Kentucky Youth Foundation is offering a $1,000 reward.
The Foundation is a community-based organization serving children and families in Boone, Kenton and Campbell Counties.
