REDFORD TWP. (WWJ) – A $2,500 reward is now being offered as concern grows for a Redford Township teen now missing for almost a month.
Amyra Porter, 14, disappeared from her home in the 23000 block of Riverpark between Telegraph Road and West Chicago in
Redford on Thursday, July 27. She was seen by her mother at around 4:45 p.m. that day, walking out of the house never to return.

The family said they have been searching for Porter since the day she disappeared but, even after talking with her friends, neighbors and classmates, there have been no clues as to where she went.
Her father, Darryl Porter said the family fears she was abducted and is being held against her will.
“You got a lot of support, a lot of love for you,” said Darryl Porter. “Whoever has you, please let her loose.”
He brother, Ambrose Taylor, said “Whoever has her please let her go; I beg you,”adding, to his sister: “Your family loves you… We need you.”
Amyra Porter described as a black female, 5’2” tall and weighing around 120 pounds.
