The family of a missing mother from Graham is still searching for her. There is a new effort to try to collect any information about Candice Shields' disappearance. It's been 44 days since Candice was last seen. She is four months pregnant and has a one year old son. Candice's mother and step-father were both at Monday's meeting in Graham. Members of the community came together to offer support to the family and begin the next stage of their search for Candice.
"Today we are actually updating our flyers on my daughter Candice," says Michelle Quillin, Shield's mother.
About 15 family members and friends gathered in the Old Ag Barn in Graham. They are sharing in Candice Shield's memory and gearing up for a continued search for information.
"We're going to go door to door around the neighborhood that she's been missing," Quillin explains.
Candice's mother and step-father lead the pack with help from CUE, Community United Effort Center for Missing Persons. They say the goal is to remind the people of Graham that Candice is still missing.
"There's some rumors that have been going around that have said that she's been found," Quillin says.
But that isn't the case. It's been 44 days since Candice was last seen by her grandfather. Her mother says they are looking for any information about the night Candice disappeared. "We just want to make people remember that night," Quillin says. "We are just trying to jog memories."
The family and friends split in to teams covering Graham with new flyers about Candice.
"We're really grateful for all that they are giving of a few hours of the day out of their hectic schedule to come and help." Candice's mother says she hopes this new effort will bring forward new information on her daughter's whereabouts.
Quillin says, "We just want her to come back safely."
CUE is the same organization that helped in the search for Krishonda Townsend who disappeared in July of 2010. Her remains were found last October in Palo Pinto County.
