Update: As we can all tell, this a fluid story, and we here at Clutch want to respect Dr. Tosin Oyelowo and her family and friends in these unfortunate times. Hopefully, this story will be updated as soon as possible and once we receive word, we will pass it along to all who are concerned in our community.

By now, we’re all familiar with the story of the missing blonde-haired, blue-eyed girls who meet misfortune while on vacation or walking home from class, but we rarely hear about the scores of black and brown women who go missing everyday.

After Dr. Tosin Oyelowo went missing and not hearing about her story on the news, her friends created a website they hope will help bring her home.

According to the website Help Bring Tosin Home, Dr. Oyelowo went missing on December 9 in Charleston, South Carolina where she is working as a resident after graduating from the University of Charleston West Virginia School of Pharmacy. I was able to find very few details besides a local write-up about her situation. So, that’s where we come in. Social media has the power to change things and help police find Tosin and bring her home.

Her friends and family are asking that you share her story via social media (use the hashtag #TosinOyelowo) to raise awareness about her absence. If you have any information regarding Dr. Oyelowo’s disappearance call the Charleston Police Department at 843-577-7434.

    Black women are the least cared about people in this country. Stories like this don’t surprise me in the least. And people let’s face it…..this trend is never going to change.

    New reports in the media tonight coming out of Charleston say she is the female who jumped off a bridge on the day she was reported missing. The police have found her car, driver’s license and other items in her car. Apparently, she committed suicide, which is deeply sad.
