WEATHERFORD, Oklahoma -

A 16-year-old Weatherford girl disappeared without a trace. One year later, the search to find Jaray Wilson is still far from over.

Investigators say they get several tips a week, but unfortunately, they're not any closer to solving her missing person case.

"I gotta keep on looking for her and fighting every day to find her," Jara Wilson, Jaray's mom said.

Wilson explained she refuses to give up. She said the last year has felt like one long day.

"It doesn't seem like it's been a whole year since I have seen her," she said.

Her daughter Jaray Wilson vanished on October 15, 2012. The only signs of the teenager since then have been the 1000s of posters they put up around the state.

"I'm frustrated and I'm emotionally drained, but I'm not giving up," Wilson explained.

Same as the family, the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotic's Human Trafficking Unit is working to find Jaray Wilson. Investigators initially believed the teenager was sold into the sex trade.

"We still don't have concrete evidence to point us to human trafficking, kidnapping, or runaway," OBN spokesperson Mark Woodward said. "We don't know but somebody out there has the answer."

Since the day of her disappearance, agents have followed more than 1000 leads and conducted more than 76 interviews. Investigators have also served more than a dozen search warrants in six different states, Maryland, Texas, Nevada, New Mexico, Kansas and Tennessee.

Woodward explained the search warrants are for cell phone records, surveillance video, and photos captured at traffic lights or convenience stores. Investigators say it's possible her image has changed some since family and friends the day she went missing.

The last known photos of Jaray Wilson were captured at a convenience store in Hydro, Oklahoma, in October 2012.

Still, investigators are optimistic.

"Don't worry about the clock or the calendar, we need to be focusing on the information and getting someone to speak up and come forward with information about where she is," Woodward said.

Jara Wilson hopes it's soon. So she does not have to spend another day without her daughter.

"I wish she was already home, but I know she is out there somewhere," Wilson said.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the OBN's Human Trafficking Tip Line toll free at 855-617-2288. You can remain anonymous. There is also $10,000 reward being offered in the case.
