Family seeks help to find missing 19 year-old woman

Ulari J. Melvin

UPDATE: This young woman was safely found on May 14, according to relatives.

A local family is putting out a call for help this week as they search for a missing 19 year-old woman. Ulari J. Melvin, a senior at Boston Academy, was last heard from on May 5 when she sent a text message indicating that she was moving to Florida. However, family members say her disappearance is out of character for Ulari and fear that she may have been coerced into leaving town. They have not been able to reach her since and her social media account has been disabled.

Ulari Melvin is described as 5’1”, 105 pounds, with slender build and brown skin with shoulder-length hair that is honey blonde in color. She has a scar on the inside of her left wrist and on the left side of her face.

If you have information about her whereabouts please call Boston Police.
