WNY Community Rallies to Find Frank Goldberg
Frank Goldberg is a local community activist who went missing on Monday, December 16, 2013, and was last seen near Lafayette and Grant Streets in Buffalo. Frank’s family and friends are very concerned, particularly because they term her disappearance very atypical. There has been an outpouring of community support, including volunteers who have undertaken foot searches on Buffalo’s West Side, created informational media (including the poster and video included here), and searched hospitals and other relevant facilities. There is a very active Facebook page (Help Find Frank Goldberg) as well.
While this outpouring of support has been heartwarming for Frank’s friends and family, they grow more and more concerned with each passing day, and are asking that everyone keep an eye out for Frank. She is 36 years old, 5'5" tall, 150 pounds, and is described as having "a tomboy-ish appearance with short, graying blond hair." Frank identifies as genderqueer and uses feminine pronouns.
Frank’s sister, Harmony Goldberg, has issued the following statement:
“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 taking 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 took her wallet that contained her identification and some cash, but she does not have her phone with her.”
