Friends and family of Susan Powell are launching a social media blitz in the search for the missing Utah mother of two.

James Hofheins, one of the organizers, says the three-day effort beginning Monday will use Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to information about Powell and her picture throughout the Internet.

He says there will also be a purple ribbon campaign and Facebook users are being asked to change their profile pictures to a purple ribbon.

Powell has been missing since Dec. 7. Police have labeled her husband Josh Powell as a person of interest. He has told police he went camping with the Powells' two young boys around the time she went missing.
