Amelia is missing on Flickr.
Picture from Gina, text from Sandra:
I’m very scared to make this announcement, but it has to be done:
Amelia, our traveling Blythe, is missing!!
Jen / The Brass Cupcake sent her timely and insured via USPS to Megan / Smeebot . Tracking states the package has been delivered on Monday the 8th, but where ever it was delivered, Megan did not receive Amelia.
First of all, there is nobody to blame except USPS. Jen has done nothing wrong, she has send Amelia correctly and is now doing all possible to make USPS find our girl!
Please keep in mind, that this could have happened to any of us hosts! I don’t want to get ahold of any drama, I understand if people are upset – we all are. If anyone needs to vent, please send me a private Message. As the organizer I’m taking full responsibility for the well fare of our girls.
What we have done so far:
Jen and Megan contacted USPS and filed an official claim. Unfortunately it does not seem like USPS will actively search for Amelia, as the package has been insured. We have to wait 21 days from the ship date before we can fill out the paperwork to be reimbursed on the insurance.
Though we still hope that Amelia will turn up, as this is the only thing we matter about.
If you are a future host:
Clearly, even if we find Amelia soon, there will be a huge delay of your hosting time. If we do not find her within one month, I will use our community fund to find a new base doll and let her send to Gina GBaby, who offered to customize Amelia’s sister too. Gina is very upset about this situation too, of course.
You can choose now: back out and get your contribution back immediately OR wait for new developments (you can leave the project any time)
If you already hosted Amelia:
I can not say anything regarding the ra’f’fle at the end of the project at the moment, so I would like to ask you to wait a few more weeks. I have to think about options.
What can you do to help?
Please keep an eye on the bay – in case she has been delivered to the wrong person it could be that the receiver is trying to get rid of her. In that case don’t overreact, don’t write to the false receiver and don’t write to the bay – we have to think wisely about next steps and don’t want to lose trace.
Thank you for your attention and help! Please download and spread this picture and message!
Please reblog and help to find her.

Look who finally showed up after we paid the horrible custom fees of 75 Euros!
Geo Darling is a Frankie Darling Custom Blythe and 1 of 3 Traveling Blythes. She’ll stay with me in Aachen for a little while and then I’ll send her to Blomquist / Ole who lives in Hamburg :)
