    Trukita Scott's friends and family are not giving up hope. They think someone must know something about her disappearance.

    "I just pray for the strength to continue this because every day for me is getting harder," said Trukita's mother Kengeral Scott.

    Marking almost 2 months since her disappearance, Trukita Scott's friends and family released balloons into the air as a reminder that she has not been forgotten.

    "My baby has so much ahead of her," Kengeral Scott said. "She has these 2 kids, has a family that loves her, friends that love her."

    The 24-year-old was last seen in Miami Gardens on June 25th. She didn't pick up her kids from daycare and never showed up at home. Now, Trukita's loved ones hope these messages of love and prayer reach her, wherever she may be.

    "This is a living hell," said Trukita's father, Charles Scott. "If you've never experienced it, it's something i wish nobody has to go through."

    Some parents that have been through this terrifying experience also joined the Scott family in a show of solidarity.

    "You feel very alone and that's why it's so important for us to support this family," said Elisa Stirling, CUE Center for Missing Persons coordinator. Stirling says her son went missing in 2005. "Because you read about missing persons, you see posters, you see it on television, but you don't experience it, and all you think is thank God that didn't happen to me."

    Anyone with information about Trukita Scott's whereabouts is urged to call Broward Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS (8477).
