Missing: Frank Goldberg

Filed under: Activism

This notice, written by the missing woman’s sister, is circulating on Facebook. Reposting here in hope of helping her family:

Frank Goldberg – much loved sister, daughter, friend and community advocate – has been missing since the evening of Monday, December 16th, 2013, and her family needs your help to find her.

Frank is a loving and strong person, and she is valued deeply by the people in her life. She is both gruff and gentle. She loves 1507839_10202340379766857_209324471_ntaking care of animals, especially cats. She has been an activist and an advocate in the LGBT community for many years, helping to build a transgender support group at Buffalo’s Pride Center, which has been a valuable space of support and community for dozens of people. She also has a long history of providing support and services for people with addictions and with harm reduction work in particular.

Frank was last seen at our brother’s house on the West Side of Buffalo around 6:30 pm. She is about 5’ 5” and 150 pounds. She has a masculine gender presentation, and she has short graying blond hair. She wears black-rimmed glasses. When she disappeared, she was wearing a green canvas coat, and she may have been wearing a black knit hat with a yarn Mohawk along the top. Frank took her wallet that contained her identification and some cash, but she does not have her phone with her. We have filed a missing persons report with the police. Her family has notified her social networks, searched the places where she has tended to spend time, and we have been calling the hospitals and coroners’ offices daily. We now need the community’s support to find her.
