WILKES-BARRE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) —The family of a 36-year-old woman who’s been reported missing in Wilkes-Barre is begging the community for answers. Now, thanks to a local non-profit, billboards in Luzerne County are sharing their plea for help.
“She’s had no social media contacts, just nothing. There’s nothing,” said Bonnie Long, who is Bryanna’s aunt.
36-year-old Bryanna Cooper-Rosendo hasn’t been seen or heard from by her family since April of 2021.
The silence deafening to her family led them to put up two billboards on Carey Avenue and Spring Street showcasing her disappearance.
“We were really just trying to raise awareness hoping that somebody would come forward with any information,” said Long.
She says Bryanna struggled for the majority of her adult life with substance abuse but has never gone missing for this long always reaching out to her children up until her disappearance.
Long says thanks to ‘Season of Justice’ a non-profit that helps assist families and agencies involved in cold cases Bryanna’s family received a grant to fund the billboards.
“Bryanna’s family deserves to know where she is and deserves to know what happened and so that’s the biggest thing. If you recognize her if you know what happened if you have any information. Even if you don’t think that it’s important, it could be what finds her,” said Kendall Mills, Seasons of Justice Program Coordinator.
Nearly one year ago the Wilkes-Barre police department got involved and put a call out on social media requesting any information on Bryanna’s whereabouts.
Meanwhile, her family says they are preserving their search for answers.
“Please contact Officer Conmy with any kind of information that may lead to us finding her. We just want to bring her home, either way, we want to bring her home,” said Long.
If you have information on Bryanna Cooper-Rosendo’s whereabouts, you’re asked to contact the Wilkes-Barre Police Department.
