Family and friends continued a search Saturday for missing Belmont mother Elizabeth "Liz" Stonger.
Stonger was last seen Sunday, October 14th at the Belmont Wal-Mart.
Stonger is 5'3" and 180 pounds. She has red hair and hazel eyes.
A family friend told WBTV people are searching areas in and around Belmont. They also spent the day handing out flyers.
"A lot of people don't know about it unless they just briefly see it on the news...it brings up people thinking I might have saw her and at this point that's all we have is people that might of and then go find out if it is true," Tara Morell said. "It's been a while so we are just trying to do anything...somebody could be traveling through..see it recognize her."
"I try not to break down but how do you not?" Liz's sister Amy Stonger said.
The family has contacted the CUE Center for Missing Persons to help with the case. Volunteers with the CUE center recently found missing teens Jake Ziegler and Ray Pierce. The two went missing in mid-October on a trip to Myrtle Beach.
"Even just the few people that were willing to take their time out of their lives [to search or pass out flyers]..for somebody that didn't even know..people are very caring and concerned..it means the world to me..because I can't do it on my own..I can't," Stonger said.
Police say Stonger's cell phone pinged in a spot near the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Stonger may be driving a faded burgundy 1998 Chevy Lumina with NC license plate ABC-6609. The car has a "Happy Bunny" sticker on the fuel door. There is also a stick figure on the back windshield. It shows a woman and child.
If you have any information about Stonger's whereabouts, please call the Belmont Police Department: 704.825.3792
