Memphis church calls on community to pray for missing teacher Liza Fletcher

As the police continue their search for the missing teacher, Liza Fletcher, her community in Memphis, as well as the church that she attends, have made urgent pleas for prayer for her protection.

Fletcher, 34, went out for his regular early morning jog on Friday at around 4:30 a.m., but he did not return and has not been seen since. Multiple agencies, including the FBI, are looking for her because they think she has been kidnapped.

The Second Presbyterian Church posted the following on their Facebook page, “URGENT CALL TO PRAYER. Church family, as you may have seen on many news outlets, one of our members, Eliza (Liza) Fletcher, was reportedly abducted at 4:30am this morning while on a run. Please join us in praying for Liza’s safety, and that she will be found soon.”

“Please also pray for her family, the church added, noting parishioners are welcome to visit the church to pray.”

Through this afternoon, the sanctuary is available for anyone who wants to pray.

Fletcher graduated from the private college prep school Hutchison School in 2006. The school made a similar request, asking people in the community and elsewhere to pray for her safe and quick return.

“Hutchison family, we ask that you please join us in praying for the safe return of Liza Wellford Fletcher ’06. She was abducted this morning near the University of Memphis while running. She is a beloved alumna, and we pray for her safety and for her family,” the school wrote.

A lot of people wrote messages of prayer and best wishes in response to both articles.

One user added that they were “praying fervently for God to protect her and break the will of the abductor” in the hopes that the victim will be released completely safe and without any injuries.

Another person added, “Praying for her safe return.”

According to the investigators, the junior kindergarten teacher was “abducted and forced into a mid-sized, dark-colored SUV” as she ran along a section of Central Avenue near the University of Memphis.

On Friday evening, Memphis police reported that the husband, along with the couple’s two children, were OK.
