While a search group organizing through Facebook was meeting Friday at St. Matthew Lutheran Church before beginning their search for Camisha Hollis, an Omaha mother of three missing since Monday, Omaha Police released more details about her vehicle, found downtown on Thursday, and requested the public's help in tracking down more video of the area from this week.




OPD's Homicide Unit is looking for video from the downtown area — from businesses or individuals — that may show anyone coming and going from the red 2018 Hyundai Elantra vehicle, or the surrounding area, between 10 p.m. Saturday, April 1 and 7 p.m. Thursday, April 5. If you have video from this timeframe or any other information to share about this case, the OPD Homicide Unit asks that you call 402-444-5656; or contact Omaha Crime Stoppers at 444-STOP or at


Ahead of Friday night's meeting, a post in the group from Hollis' sister, Ceez, thanked those who had participated in search efforts earlier in the week, and outlined plans for Friday night.

"We will search the residential areas starting near Camisha's home and moving outward," she wrote. "Please join us tonight, do not let your efforts or continued efforts end here."



Camisha Hollis' vehicle was located downtown just before 5 p.m. Thursday in the parking lot of the 402 Hotel, 2211 Douglas St., according to OPD press release sent out a Friday evening. 

With temperatures expected to hit record lows tonight, organizers were reminding volunteers to be prepared for the cold.

"Dress warm tonight, and bring flashlights if you so desire," a pinned post advises. "Please dress for the weather and bring a flashlight if you think you may search, or both search and canvas."

Volunteers are asked to meet in the church basement to check in, gather fliers, canvassing sheets and map assignments to assure no areas of the neighborhood were overlooked in the search, and to coordinate communications.
