FORDYCE, Ark. (KTHV) - Family and friends gathered in Fordyce Saturday to mark one year since Laura Jones disappeared.

Jones hasn't been seen since July 22, 2013, and clues have dried up. People gathered to raise awareness and collect funds to keep the cold case open.

"Basically to us it's like she just fell off the face of the earth, and no, it was not like her at all," said Shannon Sargent.

Jones had been treated for schizophrenia prior to her disappearance, but Sargent said through all of her previous bouts with mental illness, she remained dedicated to her daughter.
