Hello everyone,

I’ve been asked by a number of people to clarify what happens when you reach out to contact the Kersh family through this website established for our daughter, Nadia Kersh who went missing 3 Nov 08.  First I’d like to tell you when you register on this website and post a comment, your words are not made available to the public unless you give us permission to do so.  When you login as a registered user you can see your personal comments but they are not posted for the public to view.  When you submit a comment it is sent directly to the Kersh family and we will respond to you unless your email is identified as spam.  (Please give us several days to get back with you.)  There are a few comments posted (with permission) on this site however, most people prefer to keep their submissions private.

We hope this will help some of you who may have wanted to reach out to us but have been hesitant not knowing what to expect if you did. 

Thank you all for staying with us and lending us your support as we continue to search for Nadia and work for a brighter future for our grandson (Nadia’s son).

God’s Grace to you all,

Nancy Kersh

Hello everyone and especially the good people of Alabama,

As Nadia’s family we would like to alert you to an issue that has troubled us for some time.  There have been a number of money raising events held in Alabama since our daughter, Nadia Kersh’s disappearance on 3 November 2008.  These events have claimed to be for the benefit of Nadia and/or our grandson (Nadia’s two year old son). 

We would like for you to know that we have either been misled by previous event promoters or we have not been involved in the fundraising activity.  As Nadia’s family we have not benefited from these fundraisers in any way.  No monies have gone to support efforts to find our daughter or to support our grandson.    

In addition, we understand one fundraiser held last year pocketed all the proceeds.  Please be aware. We want you to know that if a specific fundraiser is not advertised by us on this website, it is not sanctioned by our family.  As Nadia’s family we feel compelled to write and clear this matter before more people may be misled or potentially exploited. 

Many thanks to you all as we continue our quest to find Nadia and work hard towards bringing a better future for our grandson.

Warm blessings to you this New Year,

Nancy for all the family
