The sister of the missing 18-year-old from Lafayette is pleading for answers in the case of their beloved family member known as “Daisy Lynn.”

Jacquelyn Landry left home with a friend on May 23 and has not been heard from since. Her oldest sister, Lori Sonnier, says they'd do anything to have Daisy Lynn back home.

“It’s not something that’s easy to deal with, to be told somebody’s hurt your child, and now she’s just still missing," Sonnier said.

Twenty-two-year-old Malik Davis of Lafayette has been charged with second degree murder in connection with Daisy Lynn’s disappearance. But Sonnier says they still don’t have any answers or closure.

She says law enforcement doesn't want to release much more so that the investigation is not compromised.

“I know they’re out there diligently doing their job to do everything they can to bring her home. So what he has or hasn’t said, we don’t have any of those details,” Sonnier said.

Sonnier says she’s trying to keep faith that she will have answers in the end. Teams of volunteers and rescue crews are searching for the missing girl. She says Daisy Lynn is the youngest of four sisters, and this has been a terrible ordeal for the entire family.

“I was the oldest. When she was born, I was 17. So it was kind of like a baby of my own. She was definitely spoiled, and I had her rotten. She was my little shadow and sidekick for many, many, many years,” Sonnier said.

Sonnier says they are looking for volunteers and asking the public to share the below Facebook Page with their friends on social media. To find out how you can help, click here.
