It's the 8 year anniversary of a Bay County woman's mysterious disappearance. Elizabeth Prescott would be 26 years old.
Today her parents are still seeking answers to questions they've carried with them since that fateful April day in 2004
They joined officials from Crime Stoppers and the Bay County Sheriff's office seeking closure. They handed out over 1300 flyers, Monday.
It's believed that Prescott was walking to the Wal-Mart on Tyndall Parkway when she disappeared. She was last seen down the street at her apartment in the Abalone Apartment complex.
It's a case that's baffled her family and investigators these eight years. They say after all this time they just want some answers.
"When I see people come in or hear girls say hey mommy, I constantly turn around. I'm hoping that one of these days when I turn around it's going to be her," said Donna Paglaiccetti, Prescott's mother.
Paglaiccetti has never given up trying to find answers in her daughter's disappearance. Monday's flyers showing photos of a young blonde with a bright smile reached the hands of Wal-Mart shoppers.
Prescott's father, Vince Paglaiccetti has a harder time with this anniversary. He fought back angry tears recalling the day she disappeared
"That first day you don't worry. May she just went to one of her friends. Something went wrong, but then 2 or 3 days went by. Now its 8 years later and I don't know anything more than I did on day one," he said.
19 year old Prescott was married only two months at the time of her disappearance. Her husband, Coy Prescott, reported her missing. He and others were interviewed by investigators regarding the disappearance. His whereabouts aren't known today.
"She had a vivid Imagination, thought the world was perfect...which was her down fall," said Mr. Paglaiccetti.
With a $1000 reward on the line through Crime Stoppers, Bay County Sheriff's Investigator Paul Vecker is pleading for those with information to come forward.
"We never close a case. I don't like that word "cold case" because we keep it going at all times," said Vecker.
"It could be ten years, it could be 20 years and I'm going to still be here. I'm still going to be looking for her. I don't care how long it takes till the last breath in me, I will keep doing this," added Paglaiccetti.
If you have any information you're urged to call the Bay County Sheriffs Office at 747-4700 or you can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 785-tips.
