Time cannot heal all wounds, especially emotional wounds left open.

"We've searched the road. We've gone to roads around. There's no sign," Taylor Stone said two weeks after her mother, Kelly Stone, disappeared. The then 20-year-old clung to hope that her mother would be found.

One year later, that hope has faded. "I just miss her," Stone said. "I don't think she's alive no more."

At the time of her disappearance, Kelly was 52 years old. She was last seen in Orlinda.

The past year has passed quickly for Stone and her son, Aiden. Now about to turn three years old, he has still been asking about his "G-ma," as he called her. All the while, Stone has had to find the strength to move on for her and her son.

"It's been hard. I have my days, of course. Some days I'm crying, some days I'm mad," Stone said.

Kelly disappeared one day after the anniversary of her mother's death, a family tragedy that hit Kelly hard. Robertson County detectives were soon on the case and pinged her cell phone near Millersville. That was last June, and since then, there has not been a trace.

"He said this is one of the hardest cases he's ever had to work," Stone explained.

In Orlinda, a grieving daughter looks for peace for her mother and her family.

"I just want to be able to put her at peace," Stone said.

Kelly's 2006 white Buick Rendezvous also has not been found. Anyone with information that can help has been asked to contact the Robertson County Sheriff's Office.
