LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

It's been more than four months since a Smyer woman disappeared. Sunday night her friends and family came together in prayer and hope, desperate to find her.

30-year-old Maegan Hembree was last seen on Feb. 26, while on her way to a friends house.

About a week after her disappearance, police found the car Maegen was driving at a west Lubbock apartment.

The Texas Rangers have been investigating since then.

Friends and family held a candlelight vigil outside the First Assembly of God church at 98th and Memphis.

Maegan's mother and father say they just want to keep Maegan's name in the headlines so people won't forget about her.

Maegan's father Jerry Hembree said, "We want it to continue until she is found. One way or the other we believe that she'll be brought home. We're not going to stop believing, we're not going to lose hope."

Maegan is 4'11 and weighs 120 pounds.

If you have any information about her whereabouts, please contact the Hockley County Sheriff's Office at (806) 894-3126.
