JaRay Wilson's cellphone, the one she was using at the time of her disappearance, has not been found. It also hasn't been used since Oct. 14.
No response on cell
“Every time they ping it ... nothing,” her mother said.
The missing girl's mother said she doesn't think her daughter ran away or disappeared voluntarily because they had been in contact every day leading up to Oct. 14.
Jara Wilson said she and her husband had also bought JaRay a new Ford Mustang and their daughter was due to get her driver's license just days after her disappearance.
“I know my daughter,” she said. “If she was just out there, she would have contacted me by now. I know she would.”
Since her daughter's disappearance, Jara Wilson said she and her husband have followed up on numerous leads in the case, even traveling to Las Vegas when one tipster was sure JaRay was living in Nevada. She said law enforcement efforts have produced no results, either. “We've heard tons of rumors, we check out every little tip we get,” Jara Wilson said. “But, it's all been made up, or it's been girls that kind of look like her.”
