HENRICO, Va. (WTVR)--Every day is a struggle for Zandra Ford and family.

Her daughter Arianna "Peaches" Davis vanished just over two years ago

In an East End store parking lot this afternoon, about a third of a mile from where Davis disappeared, family and neighbors gathered for a pink pledge-to never give up.

Pink represented Davis’ favorite color, so her family blew up pink balloons,  saying resembles their continuous and growing love for their missing loved one

The mystery of where Davis is eats away at Ford's soul daily.

A pain she said is dealt in a double-dose on Mother’s Day, she said.

"I want to know if God has her and she isn't suffering,” said Ford.  

Two years ago Henrico police wasted no time saying they suspected foul play.

Yet no arrests have been made and her mom fears the case has gone cold.

Peaches grandmother says her granddaughter was last seen off Nine Mile Road, just three blocks from her home with a man she knew well.

That man is now in prison for stabbing another woman, she said.

"Sometime you have to watch the people they know, it's not always going to be a stranger, it can be someone you've known for a long time, so tell your girls to be careful."

The reward for information to “Peaches” whereabouts has grown to $3300 dollars.

Her family is hoping money will be incentive for someone to come forward.
