CAPE GIRARDEAU (KFVS) -

No one knows the feeling of a missed loved one better than the families going through that right now.

"That kind of stuff gives us hope because that means people are still looking," Brenda Wilson said.

Wilson is the sister of Teresa Butler. She was last seen at this home 7 years ago.

"She is a mother and she is missing it all," Wilson said.

Family and friends of Butler hope this news in Ohio helps keep Butler on the minds of people here.

"You don't want to ignore something and later on found out there was something to that," Wilson said.

It's the same story for family members of Beth Gill.

"We love you Beth," Martha Hamilton, sister of Gill, said. "We are searching. We will never give up."

After almost 48 years, they haven't given up hope yet.

"When we think of being in Beth's place and to think she could be looking for us, if she knew her family had given up, I don't think we could stand to live with that thought," Jeannie Hinck, sister of Gill, said.

Both of these families are still wanting for that moment.

"It's almost unimaginable how good the feeling would be and the happiness that would come from that," Hamilton said.
