SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE) - No one has seen or heard from her in nearly a year. As they continue looking for her, the daughters of Debra Lucas are asking the public for any sign of their mother.
"Our mother is nice. She's caring, she's easy to get along with," Kelly Pinnick said.
It has been 10 ½ months since Pinnick and her sister, Chasity Lucas, last heard from their mother. Pinnick said it has been a difficult time and she never dreamed in a million years something like this would happen to her.
Debra's family said the now 49-year-old is the type that keeps in touch with her four children and grandchild. Pinnick said her mother would call them every day just to check on them to make sure everyone was okay.
According to Pinnick, her mother was last seen with her boyfriend near her home at 4th and M Streets in Louisville on September 26, 2010. Pinnick said her mother may have gotten into some kind of dark colored car, but that's all they know which leaves many questions and not nearly enough answers.
"Like, what happened?" Lucas said, "If she's alive, or if she's not. Who she's with? Why they did it?"
Pinnick and Lucas just want to find their mother. That's why they are asking the public to come forward if they know something.
"If they've seen her get in the car, or if they know what happened, who she's with or whatever. Just come forward and say something," Pinnick pleaded.
Both sisters hope their mother is alive and that she will see or hear this message.
"Mom, if you're out there or if you see this, please call the police or the news and call one of us. We love and miss you. Dustin's okay, he's in 5th grade now." Pinnick said.
Metro Police said they have no new information or new leads in this case.
Anyone with information is asked to call the anonymous police tip line at 502-574-LMPD (5673).
