“Tarie is the light of my world and I just want her to come home to mom dad and her five brothers and sisters,” said Latressa Price.

Latressa runs through family photos, one family member is missing, and she wants her little girl to come home, she’s still holding out hope. Hoping her daughter will return to her.

“There’s hope, and miracles happen every day and I know she’s a miracle she was my miracle,” said Latressa.
