CHESTER, VA (WWBT) - It has been more than 330 days since friends and family stood outside Zulma Pabon's Chesterfield home pleading for her safe return.
Nearly a year later, she still hasn't been seen and her sister, Yalitza Solba, is making that same plea once again.
"All I can do is stay strong, believe and keep the faith, and just have people pray for us. My family and I are pretty much asking anybody that interacted with her during that week or might have seen her car to please call the Chesterfield Police department," Solba said.
"We are still actively investigating this around the clock," Detective Chris Rizzuti said.
Police are remaining true to their vow and have remained relentless in the search. Still, to this day they are doing all they can to find the missing mother who had planned to meet up with friends after leaving work that fateful June night.
"Anytime I hear about a body being found or even see a white car driving down the road my heart just drops," Chayln Spain said.
"I still have her number in my phone and try and call her now just to see if somebody will answer. I still dial her number. I just miss her," Cassie Crenshaw said.
Pabon's sister said in a video interview from her North Carolina home that while it may seem the case has gone cold, she and her family are closely working with Chesterfield Police everyday to help find the Puerto Rican native.
"You might not see it all out and there are reasons for it and the reason why I say this -- and I want to make this clear out to everybody who think that are not doing what we are doing but we are -- Detective Clayton and I work every single day together," Solba said.
Police say they can't go into the details, but do confirm new discoveries in the case. They are still working to answer these questions: Where did Zulma go after leaving work the night she vanished? Did she make it home? How did her car end up in this trailer park?
Zulma's friend, Cassie Crenshaw, says Zulma's sudden disappearance doesn't make sense.
"This is a dear friend of mine, an angel, I mean she was the sweetest person you would have ever met," Crenshaw said.
Police circulated a timeline back in July. It starts with the last time Zulma was seen on June 6th. From there it shows security camera photos of John Gibbs, the father of Zulma's young son, walking back to the home that he and Zulma shares just 14 minutes after her car was seen leaving.
Police believe the car wasn't taken far, because security video at this storage facility captured what appeared to be Zulma's car being pulled by a pickup truck.
Nearly 24 hours later that car was located at the Greenleigh Mobile Home Park.
Investigators shared never before seen evidence photos of Pabon's car on Thursday. Detectives are hoping this closer look at the vehicle, will jog someone's memory.
"Somebody was driving the truck who was towing her car. Somebody saw somebody step out of an Altima at the trailer park, somebody saw something," Crenshaw said.
Detective Chris Rizzuti works in the Chesterfield Crime Solvers Unit. They are heavily encouraging the public to send tips to them. Everything remains anonymous.
"Any little bit of information you think you may have, whether it's about her whereabouts, who she has been with the vehicle, anything, let Crime Solvers know," Rizzuti said.
In the meantime, Zulma's family is remaining confident that she will return home. Solba says she visits with her nephew, Zulma's young son, at least once a month, reassuring him and the entire family that no one will rest until Zulma is found.
"In my heart I believe she is still out there, I really do and I want to bring her home. I want to bring her home to my family and I want to bring her home to her son, Solba said.
We left messages for Zulma's boyfriend and child's father, John Gibbs, but never heard word back. If you have information on Zulma's whereabouts or information that could be helpful to Chesterfield Police then call Crime Solvers at (804) 748-0660.
