The mother of a young Akron woman missing for two weeks is trying to keep the spotlight on her case.
Carmilla Robinson will be at a rally Saturday at 2 PM at Summit Lake Community Center called "Bring Our Baby Home".
Police said 19 year-old Taylor Robinson was last seen the night of May 3rd, after she was dropped off at a house on Kipling Street, when she went to work as a home health care aide.
"We don't want people to forget that she's still not home, that she's still missing, that we're still looking," Carmilla Robinson tells AkronNewsNow.com, "that we still need help from our community" to find Taylor and others still missing.
Carmilla says she and her husband have been passing out fliers in many Akron neighborhoods, and that Akron police detectives are going door to door in the area where Taylor went missing.

A bitter custody battle has taken a deadly turn.
The body found inside a car in Wayne County has been idenitifed as a 25-year-old woman who was reported missing from Summit County early Thursday morning.
The Summit County Sheriff's office contacted New Franklin police to check for missing 25-year-old Ashley Biggs in the 600 block of East Turkeyfoot Lake Road just before 1 a.m. Thursday. Biggs, a pizza delivery driver, had failed to return from a delivery call at that location.
Authorities say it appears a struggle took place near the location they searched, because blood was discovered.
Wayne County Sheriff deputies contacted New Franklin police after they discovered a body inside the woman's missing vehicle in corn field.
New Franklin police have arrested Bigg's former boyfriend Chad Cobb, of Rittman. He was found hiding behind a barn on property belonging to a relative.
New Franklin Police Detective Nick Bollas says the 30-year-old Cobb has been charged with aggravated murder and kidnapping, and is in the Summit County Jail.
He may have allegedly lured Biggs to the closed business on East Turkeyfoot Lake Road.
Biggs and Cobb were the parents of a 6-year-old daughter and were currently involved in a contentious custody dispute in court, according to police.
The case remains under investigation .
