Reward for missing woman up

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - It's been nearly three months since 20-year-old Arianna Davis, better known as "Peaches" was last seen. On Friday, dozens of family, friends and community supporters gathered at the First Union Baptist Church in Highland Springs to raise money for a bigger reward.

"How would you feel if your child was missing and no one would speak up," said Zandra Shearin, mother of Peaches.

It's been an emotional rollercoaster with hopeful highs and at times frustrating lows. Peaches disappeared near her home off Nine Mile Road and after two and half months, there's still no sign of her.

"I've been angry a few times. I've been angry because there's no progress in the case. I'm angry because she's not here with me. I'm angry because I want to be there, touch her, and I don't know where she is," said Shearin.

Among family and friends were Henrico Police Chief Colonel Henry Stanley and Investigating Supervisor, Cindy Wood attending the vigil.

"It's real tough for the family and real tough for the police too because the investigators they pursue every piece of information they possibly can," said Chief Stanley.

Thanks to the donations during the vigil, the reward for finding peaches is now up to about $1,200 dollars.

"I'm still looking still wondering hoping that she comes home," said Shearin.
