Walk for Amy to be held Oct. 27

The Walk for Amy event started during the Covid pandemic on a cold, raining day on the 31st anniversary of Amy Mihaljevic's abduction. Approximately 60 individuals stood for one hour outside of Bay Village City Hall and directly across from the shopping plaza where Amy was abducted.

One year later the number of participants grew to more than 350. This time, the event began at the front of Bay Middle School where the Chief of Police, Robert Gillespie, shared a few remarks. This was followed by a remembrance walk to the Bay Village Square shopping plaza and back to the Bay Middle School Memorial Garden where a large stone has been place with the inscription, "Amy Mihaljevic - NEVER FORGOTTEN." White ribbons were tied around the various trees as a reminder to all of us that Amy is never forgotten and we share in keeping her memory alive.

Many generous individuals donated to the Amy Fund which is used by the Bay Village Police Department specifically for the open investigation. The fund helps to defray the cost of DNA testing and other investigative expenses.

The Walk for Amy event created awareness about the fund and over $4,000 was donated to this particular fund. Those interested in contributing to the fund can do so by writing a check out to the City of Bay Village and on the memo line write: Amy Fund. Checks should be sent to:

Bay Village City Hall
Director of Finance - Renee Mahoney

Bay Village, OH 44140

The Walk for Amy event will be held again this year at Bay Middle School on Thursday, Oct. 27, starting at 5 p.m.
