There’s still no sign of more than 250 missing Nigerian girls, and on Mother’s Day Minnesotans made their feelings known about the kidnappings.

Men, women and children marched on the Lake Street-Marshall Avenue Bridge in St. Paul, calling for a resolution in Nigeria.

The country has received criticism for its lack of response after the girls were kidnapped by Islamist militants in April.

The pressure is growing to bring the girls back to their families.

"I think it's our civic obligation to care about these issues and at least add our voice to the wave of voices to declare an end to this outrage," said Heather Kamia, who was marching for the missing girls.

The U.S. has resources in Nigeria to help with the search.
