Search for missing Columbus woman attracting famous attention


Family, friends and a whole host of concerned citizens looking for a missing person in Columbus, Ohio, have gotten the attention of a celebrity who is very interested in helping.

Jayme Bowen, 23 of Columbus, went missing in April of 2014 while on a short walk from her sister’s house to her mother’s, a distance of just a few blocks. Bowen’s friends and family were approached by actor John Travolta while he was filming a movie in the city during an event hosted by Jayme’s Message, a nonprofit organization directed towards helping those affected by human trafficking.

“He’s a wonderful guy and I was stunned when I saw him walk over to us and ask questions about her, Erick Bellomy, family friend and organizer and fonder of Jayme’s Message, said. ” He took my card and his assistant told me he would give me a call when he is done filming to see what he can do to help.”

Since her disappearance, people like Bellomy have searched and run fundraiser’s to get Bowen back home.

Bowen has two boys and Bellomy said she would never choose to leave them.

Jayme’s Message will host an event April 11 for Bowen and other victims of human trafficking. The event will be held at Schiller Park in Columbus at 7 p.m. and attendance is expected to reach 400. Bellomy said family will release 350 balloons for the year she has been missing and host a candle light march from the park to the spot from which she went missing.

The event will also host four speakers including national award winner Peg Tobin.
