It's been almost three months since two Oklahoma City women and a child were reported missing, but Jackie Taylor says she won't give up searching for the bodies of her missing daughter and granddaughter.
"We've known from the beginning that they were murdered. But we don't have the proof or evidence to bring this to trial. I'll never give up on this till the case is solved or the day I die," Taylor said.
Lisa Kregear, 25; Jackie's daughter, Wendy L. Camp, 23, and Camp's daughter Cynthia Britto, 6, were reported missing May 29.
Since their disappearance, Taylor, a librarian at the University of Central Oklahoma, said her life has been a "nightmare. " Taylor said she had a "mental breakdown" and has been unable to work since Camp and Britto made the ill-fated trip to Shamrock on May 29.
She said everything just seems to have gone wrong since her daughter's disappearance.
"Our two cars broke down, and it took a week and half for my husband to fix them so he could go to work. It seems like it's continuous. I feel like I'm on bottom, and I just keep getting knocked down farther," Taylor said.
At the urging of her psychiatrist, Taylor and her family last Thursday conducted a memorial service in Mesquite, Texas, for her daughter and granddaughter.
"It was just a way of going through the grieving process, some kind of way of putting things in perspective," Taylor said.
"We have 8-by-10 pictures made of them and had them displayed on an altar. We had our memorial around that altar. I have an uncle who is a minister, and he officiated," Taylor said.
She said she hopes someone will come forward and give information about the disappearance.
Kregear, Camp and Camp's daughter went to see Camp's 4-year-old son Jonathon Noe at his father's home in Shamrock on May 29, Taylor said.
Taylor said Camp called her husband in Oklahoma City from the Shamrock Cafe about 5 p.m., and that was the last time the family heard from the three.
They were last seen getting out of a 1983 gray Audi in Chandler, Taylor said.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and local authorities have conducted aerial and ground searches for the three but with no luck. Last month the bureau offered a reward of up to $5,000 to help find them.
Wednesday OSBI spokesman Kym Koch said investigators still have no major leads.
Kregear is 5 feet, 4 inches tall, weighs 130 pounds, and has blond hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing acid-washed jeans and a yellow and white striped shirt.
Camp is 5 feet, 3 inches tall, weighs 200 pounds and has brown hair and eyes. Camp has multiple sclerosis and walks with a limp.
She was last seen wearing a red sweat shirt and pants and white tennis shoes. Officials fear for her safety because she was not carrying her life-preserving medication.
Britto is 3 feet tall, weighs about 60 pounds and has brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink sweater, light blue corduroy pants, a blue and black striped shirt and tennis shoes.
Anyone with information should call the OSBI's 24-hour hot line, 1-800-522-8017. BIOG: NAME:Archive ID: 513007
