New search for Jamie Fraley
GASTONIA, N.C.-- A new search is planned for a missing 22-year old from Lowell in Gaston County.
Jamie Fraley vanished nearly a year ago, but her family is not giving up hope.
"I don't want my daughter to be forgotten and it's been about a year," says Jamie's mother, Kim Fraley.
Kim helped pass out posters of her missing daughter to the crowd at a checkers game Saturday night. She was joined by members of the Kristen Foundation, a group that helps try to locate missing persons.
The foundation plans to search again next month for Jamie Fraley, this time in areas that had not been searched when she vanished last April 9 th.
"People have to remember them. Families need us for that. They can't go home and wonder what happened to their loved one," says Joan Petruski, with the Kristen Foundation.
"You wake up every day and wonder if this is going to be the day. You just have to keep going and that is what I am doing," says Fraley
When Jamie went missing, her purse and keys were found in her locked Lowell apartment.
A few days later her cell phone was found on a road a couple of miles away.
"Investigators for a time were looking at a man they suspected had been stalking Jamie, but two months after she disappeared, he died and that lead like so many others went cold."
It is now coming up on a year that Jamie has been gone, but her mother says she will never give up hope.
"You can go on and just take it day to day and hope this will be the day you get the call to say we found her and everything is going to be OK," says Fraley.
