CHARLOTTE, NC (WJZY) - UPDATE: (8/15/16) - Family and friends of 23-year-old Tru Quan Le, 17-year-old Alex Castillo and 19-year-old Ahmia Feaster continued to search for answers in their disappearance.
More than 30 volunteers handed out hundreds of missing person posters along Eastway Drive on Sunday.
All three were last seen Tuesday, August 9. On Saturday, Feaster and Castillo called home to say they were safe. Family members believe it was a forced call because it came from a private number and the phone went dead quickly.

On Saturday morning, a red Dodge Caliber was found along Dulin Creek Boulevard. Police believe it's the vehicle Ahmia Feaster was last seen driving. Police canvassed the area, but none of the missing were found.
