WILMINGTON – Two families continue to search for answers in the case of two missing women.
Priscilla Rogers, 41, and Pamela Bradshaw, 47, both lived in Wilmington.
Rogers went missing last summer, and family members say this holiday season wasn’t the same.
"We always get together on the holidays,” Larry Rogers, Priscilla’s brother, said. “You can tell she wasn't there this past Christmas, because she's the life of the party."
Family members recently put out new posters with Priscilla Rogers’ picture, hoping to generate some new tips.
"If you're out there Priscilla, and you’re looking at this, give your big brother or sister a call. Call somebody," Larry Rogers said.
Priscilla Rogers’ sister said she can’t understand why her sister hasn’t just picked up the phone.
"She is a family oriented person,” Beverly Stephens said. “She loves her family she doesn't go far without even calling us or what's going on."
Bradshaw’s case is also a mystery. She was last seen in September 2000. Doctors had also diagnosed her with AIDS. But her family said her diagnosis was hopeful and that she was trying to get her life back on track.
In fact, the day she went missing, she and her mother had just returned from a doctor’s appointment.
"She saw Pamela talking to someone who drove up before she left and didn't really think anything of it, and that's basically all we have," Monica Caison, with the CUE Center for Missing Persons, said.
But the trail goes cold from there. Investigators say without her medication, she would not survive.
"We recently worked with law enforcement to get her daughter and family members entered into COTUS in case in fact she may have already been found and was a Jane Doe," Caison said.
The two cold cases require the community’s help.
"I feel these two black women have not gotten noticed as they need to be noticed and we definitely want to reach out and let them know that we are here for everyone and we think their case is as important," Caison said.
