As the search is suspended on Carter Mountain for Bonnie Santiago, her family huddled near the police mobile command in hopes for good news.
"Just praying sitting up here and waiting for her. That's all we can do," said Santiago's sister.
Fifty-seven-year-old Santiago has been missing since Saturday when she was last seen at the orchard on Carter Mountain.
Bonnie's older sister Barbara says its unlike her to wander off without telling anyone.
"She's always close to her family her kids. She didn't contact her kids we knew something was wrong with her," Simpson said.
Simpson says Santiago is a fun loving woman who comes from a large family with seven children of her own, and 14 grandchildren.
"She just likes to have fun. She's a happy person. I just can't see her being missing. It's so surreal," said Simpson. "Her children are missing her, her grandchildren and missing her, her brothers and sisters are missing her."
The family says if Bonnie is out there, or is someone knows where she is to let them know they love her, and want to see her soon.
"If she's out somewhere besides this orchard please, please contact somebody because we need her home," Simpson said.
