Family ties yellow ribbons for missing Lubbock woman Zoe Campos

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

When Zoe Campos' mother heard that the Texas Department of Public Safety and Texas Ranger Unsolved Crimes Investigation Team were investigating the cold case murder of Colorado City teen Hailey Dunn, she felt relief for Dunn's family.

"I hope and pray that they have what they need," Melinda Campos said, "just like I know they're hoping and praying I have what I need."

A Christmas miracle happened in missing Lubbock woman Zoe Campos' case, Melinda said, when the Texas Rangers and Naval Criminal Investigative Service recently joined in the investigation of her daughter's disappearance.

Zoe, now 20 years old, went missing on Nov. 17, 2013.

"This is something that I've been waiting for, and they say they're one step closer, one step closer," said Zoe's mother, Melinda Campos, "I'm going to have to trust and give them faith."

Those feelings inspired Melinda to tie yellow bows on her front lawn tree, hoping to spread awareness about Zoe's disappearance. She invites everyone to join her in this cause, or even tie the ribbons to her tree at 1906 39th Street.

"I can't even trim a tree right now," Melinda said, "but I can decorate one, and this is all for her."

Melinda hopes these bows will help lead to her ultimate Christmas wish.

"One day, the cops are going to knock on my door and Zoe is going to be right behind their coats," she said. "Baby Cakes! I'm home! Because that's what she calls me. It would be the best Christmas, New Years, Happy Birthday, any present-thing ever."
