JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The family of missing Jacksonville mother, Sherry Prather, is holding on to hope she'll come home alive.
Lighting candles in hopes someone will help shed light on a mystery that's causing their heartache, Sherry Prather's two daughters joined loved ones outside the Boots N Bottles tavern in Oceanway on Thursday night. This was the spot where the 43-year-old mother from the neighborhood disappeared three week earlier.
Prather's 23-year-old daughter Mandy said, "We just have nightmares. We don't know if she's OK or if she's even out there."
Norma Ellis, Sherry's mother told Action News, "This is just so out of character. I just know something's wrong."
Before police knew it existed, Action News and Prather's mother uncovered surveillance video two weeks ago from a nearby business.
It shows Prather the night she disappeared getting driven out of the parking lot by a man on a motorcycle.
Her mother brought this footage to Jacksonville Sheriff's Office detectives.
"They won't tell me his name," said Ellis, "But they brought him in for questioning two different times. I went in the bar today and they say he hasn't been back."
Word from the bar is that the man dropped Prather off on the street somewhere on Jacksonville's Westside.
Daniel Dollison, Prather's fiancé, said, "How could you be so cowardly to just take off and leave her? Something's not right. "
Those who knew her best, now fear the worst.
