Peoria, IL (HOI) - Calls from protesters continued in front of the Peoria Police station, Thursday night they were demanding officers get answers in unsolved cases.

Dozens gathered with signs asking for Peoria Police to do more for the victim's families of violent crimes.

Written on many homemade signs was the name Alexis Scott, the Peoria woman has been missing for almost three years.

The protest organizer says she and many others are frustrated they don't have more answers to Scott's case.

"The Peoria Police Department obviously does not treat black and brown people in the community the same way when it comes to violent crimes", said Dustri Moultrie.

"There has been so much information given personally in the Alexis Camry Scott campaign to the Peoria Police Department that, in the very beginning, they didn't even look into those things."

Alexis Scott was reported missing in September 2017. There have been no answers to what happened when she left a house party and no one was been arrested in connection.
