#BringBackOurGirls | US Planes Begin Air Search For Missing Girls



There’s something happening now, and progress is being made. The US has confirmed that they have deployed planes to begin an air search for the missing girls that were kidnapped on April 15th, 2014.

The US has revealed it is flying manned surveillance missions over Nigeria to try to find more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by the militant Islamist group Boko Haram. The US is also sharing commercial satellite imagery with the Nigerian government, officials said.

It comes after militants released a video of about 130 girls, saying they could be swapped for jailed fighters. Boko Haram seized them from a school in the northern Borno state on 14 April.

“We have shared commercial satellite imagery with the Nigerians and are flying manned ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) assets over Nigeria with the government’s permission,” said a senior administration official, who declined to be named. – Per BBC

This comes as major progress is the search to find the missing girls who have been gone for almost a month now, but are said to be alive and well according to a recently released video by Boko Haram.
