    “Normally when our daughter leaves, we hear from her. She calls the next day, she calls an hour after she leaves, she's in a house, she's secure, she's nice and warm,” the victim's devastated dad said. “But we didn't hear anything.”

    Police and the community are offering a $5,000 reward for any information that leads to a suspect in the case.
