Yesterday Susan’s friends and family in West Valley City, Utah and Puyallup, Washington held a “Honk and Wave” campaign to bring more public awareness to Susan and her case.
In Utah, the event went off without a hitch. Volunteers braved wind, rain, scorching heat, and sunburn to hold signs, smile and wave at thousands of people who drove by, honked, gave “thumb’s up” and shouted things like “We hope you find her!” and “Our prayers are with you!”
In Puyallup, Washington, the event did not run as smoothly. Chuck and Judy Cox and various relatives and supporters went to their planned location in front of a busy store to hold their signs. Steve Powell, Josh Powell’s father, showed up with a camera. You can read and watch the story of what happened next from these news sources and videos:

Many people from across the country (and the world) have been posting overwhelming support for Susan and the Cox family on the official Facebook page “Friends and Family of Susan Cox Powell.” We appreciate all the support, prayers, comments and positive thoughts. We are in awe of the grace and restraint showed yesterday by Chuck Cox in the face of such obvious goading by Josh and Steve Powell.
One thing is clear: it’s easy to see who really wants to find Susan.
