The family of a Detroit woman missing for four years is still seeking answers and justice.

Donna Wells-Davis gathered with community leaders on the city’s east side, near Coventry and State Fair, the area her daughter’s car was found four years ago.

Her daughter, Tamala Wells, known to her family and friends as Nikki hasn’t been seen since 2012, but Donna has not given up hope.

"I'm praying that my baby is out there. I'm praying that she's safe and alive somewhere and I pray that someone speaks up and tells us where she is. Let the secret go,” said Wells-Davis.

Wells-Davis said she still remembers the start of the long road and search for Nikki.

"I got a phone call from her 6-year-old daughter, who is now 10-years-old, calling to tell me her mommy didn't come home last night,” said Wells-Davis.

Since then there have been no arrests, no major leads and no answers.

Wells-Davis has made it her personal mission to search for Nikki, even going out and walking through dangerous neighborhoods herself.  She won’t give up hope.

"I come out on a regular basis to search for my daughter because I would not give up on my baby, that's my baby,” said Wells-Davis.

She said she knows someone out there has an answer. She won’t let herself think the worst.
