WEATHERFORD, Okla. – Three missing Cleveland, Ohio, girls found alive after about 10 years have given renewed hope to an Oklahoma family who is still waiting for their daughter to return home.

JaRay Wilson, 16, disappeared Oct. 15, 2012.

The Weatherford teen was last seen in a surveillance picture taken the day before at a convenience store.

Her family said they believe she is a victim of human trafficking and held against her will.

With the discovery of the Cleveland girls, the Wilson family said they hope JaRay will make her way back home too.

“That just shows you, never give up; you never, never, ever give up,” Jara Wilson said, the missing teen’s mother. “I pray it’s not 10 years. When she first disappeared I didn’t think I would make it the first week and now I’m looking at seven months and I’m still here looking for her.”

The Wilson family holds a prayer vigil on the 15 day of every month based on the day she went missing and will continue to do so until JaRay is back home.

If you have any information, call the Custer County Sheriff’s Office (580) 323-1616.
