RICHMOND, Ky. (WKYT) - With each minute that passes, the family of 18-year-old Brookelyn Farthing begins to break.

"It's over three weeks, our family's breaking down we don't know what to do. We don't know where my sister is, my mom doesn't know where her daughter is. We don't know what to do," Tasha Thomas, Farthing's sister, said through tears.

While they're searching for their loved one, they're also searching for new ways to keep her face and name out there for the public to see.

"We just want to bring brooke home," Thomas added.

How they're going to do it is with friends and others in the community who are chipping in to put together a motorcycle ride on August 3rd. While the route is still in the works, the goal is clear: raise enough money to buy a billboard for Brookelyn's missing poster.

The family, and friend Stephanie Park, are hoping to rally more than a hundred bikers for the cause. The registration will be the morning of the ride, on August 3rd. Each bike will cost $10 to register and $5 for additional riders. The event will be capped off with food, music, and a bake sale. However, the family said this isn't a party, there is a purpose.

"We just want to bring a little happiness to something that's not happy at all," explained Thomas.

The ride will start and end at The Hog Trough in Richmond. T-shirts with Farthing's missing poster will also be sold for $10.

Farthing's family said there is no current search going on for the missing teen, which is why they're doing all they can to spread the word.
