"We're torn apart, we miss her, we love her," says Rose Munro.

"I went back in to wake her up and she was gone," says Lena Lunsford.

"It's been 2 1/2 years and that makes it difficult to try and recollect what you were doing that day," says Ashley Wyatt.

The day when their lives changed forever, now they're relying on you to bring answers to their family members deaths and disappearances.

"It doesn't hurt to say it and then be wrong. It could be like a key piece even though you think it's something that you're not even sure if it was right. It doesn't hurt even if you're not sure to put that information out there cause it could be what we're looking for," says Wyatt.

On the morning of November 12, 2009 Wyatt's mother Pamela Judy drove through Elkins.  She stopped to pay bills and get her mail. "She had to be driving around town at least a couple of times.  She had to pass people, sit at a red light. She was the type of person that she would wave at people, throw up her hand," says Wyatt.

But that day wasn't just another day.  Around 1pm the 39 year-old was found dead inside her burning black 2007 Chevy Colorado.  How she got there is still unclear.

If you have any information about the Pamela Judy case call the Elkins Detachment of WVSP at (304) 637-0200.

"We will not lose hope, we will not lose faith,"says Margie Blake.  Faith in finding little Aliayah Lunsford who went missing from her Bendale home on September 24, 2011.  

In an interview the day after her disappearance, Aliayah's mother Lena Lunsford said "I don't know where she's at. If somebody has her please bring her back."  Countless searches have turned up nothing to bring her home.

If you have any information about the Aliayah Lunsford case call the WV Fusion Center at (304) 558-4831

"Somebody knows," said Rose Munro several weeks after her daughter Faith Ann Willis disappeared.

The Barrackville native was last seen at a Fairmont McDonalds on the night of August 6, 2005.

If you have any information about the Faith Ann Willis case call the Fairmont Police Department at (304) 366-4200.

In regard to a lady named Pamela Judy, who was found burned to death in her truck in 2009 in Randolph County. I listened to the ID channel when a serial killer was depicted as killing his victims by burning them in trucks. Of course I had heard about this lady near home and it struck me to wonder because they showed a map where he was known to have killed. He was near North Central WV. and other places on the East Coast. I can't remember the exact program but I believe Paula Zauhn was the host. I was talking to a woman who said she was her grandmother while she was volunteering at Tyrand Cooperative Ministries in Randolph Co. She for some reason referred to her with the last name Satterfield but I cannot find a maiden name/married name etc. Please use this information if you chose and I hope it may help bring some comfort to her family if it is confirmed. Thank you, Linda

The Murder of a Fairmont girl named Fame Cooper has went cold and remained unsolved. Her body was recovered in 1990 in Barrackville. This case is extremely important to me as I knew her very well. She does not have much family left. Her sister Sunshine still lives in Fairmont I believe. Maybe getting it back out there someone may come forward with new information. Thank You so much

What about other Missing People like Joshua Oberg? Why is he never brought up or mentioned?
