Saturday, Walker's family received a helping hand, from 1,100 miles away.
EquuSearch, the same organization that mobilized thousands of people in the search for Jessie Davis, the missing, pregnant mother in Stark County, took on Walker's case.
More than 80 volunteers waded through shoulder-high grass and explored vacant homes on Cleveland's east side. They peeled their way through vacant homes and raked through heavy brush along the railroad tracks. They looked for any sign of Gloria Walker.
Richard Johnson saw a missing person's flier in his neighbor and decided to help out.
"We're down here looking for shoes, any kind of personal identification," Johnson said as he probed 3-foot-tall weeds with a stick. "You know, it's time consuming, but it's fulfilling. I think everybody should do more to help everybody else."
Tim Miller, founder of Equusearch mapped out specific areas for volunteers to look for Walker. Miller said EquuSearch has found 72 people in the more than 700 cases they've taken on.
Walker was last seen May 20, driving a car her long-time boyfriend had been repairing for a relative. Walker's brother reported her missing, five days after neighbors last saw her.
That car was found two weeks later in the Harvard/Fleet area of Cleveland, only three miles from her house.
Saturday, volunteers checked potential dump sites in that area. They found a five-foot long, mound of dirt next to the tracks near Walker's home. It was nothing.
"I think Gloria is findable," Miller said. "I think some new information came to law enforcement that may lead them in another direction."
Greg Washington, who said he fathered a son with Walker, was thankful for Miller's expertise.
"He's a godsend," Washington said. "Every day has been getting up thinking about Gloria. Where is she?"
Even though Saturday's searchers did not find Walker, Washington said the search encouraged him.
"We'll keep turning over every stone we can," Washington said. "I'm not giving up. I promised her we would always watch each other's back."
