PLANO (CBSDFW.COM) – It’s been two months since a 23-year old Fort Worth woman, Christina Morris, went missing after walking into a Plano parking garage.
Morris’ mother is demanding answers from police and the man who was last seen with her.
Jonni McElroy says she hasn’t given up hope that her daughter will be found alive. She says she just wants someone to come forward with information.
“I ask myself why. Why has nobody come forth? Why we have no clues. I ask, Why her?”
McElroy is now turning her attention to the young man seen in the last known video of Morris as she walked out of a parking garage at Plano’s Shops at Legacy. The man is identified as Enrique Arochi, a friend of Morris, who has not been named a suspect or person of interest by police. McElroy, however, believes he knows something about her daughter’s disappearance.
“I feel like the one person that walked her to the parking garage has to know something,” said McElroy.
Morris’ family and loved ones have even gone as far as to picket outside Arochi’s home hoping to get answers from him.
“He hasn’t reached out to us as a family since day one. He hasn’t helped with one search. He hasn’t helped out with any concerns.
Arochi’s attorney told CBS 11’s Ken Molestina that contrary to what the Morris family believes, he is cooperating with police and has been interviewed several times.
McElroy is also angry with Plano police. According to her, the department has not done enough to keep her up to date on their investigation.
“I want just a phone call maybe every day or every other day just letting us know ‘Ms. McElroy, we haven’t found anything new today.’”
Plano police released a statement to CBS 11:
“The Plano police department currently has two detectives assigned exclusively to this investigation. The investigative team has many other detectives and officers at their disposal for any assistance they need. The investigation remains a high priority case for the department.
The department says there are still no leads.
More than 100 people are expected to gather at the Legacy Center Park at 7 pm for a vigil in Morris’ honor. McElroy hopes the attention will lead to answers in her daughter’s disappearance.
