Rogers Family Keeping Hope Alive for Missing Daughter, Joanna

There are nearly eight-thousand missing person cases in the state of Texas alone. On Thursday, supporters met on the capital steps in Austin to commemorate the first-ever Texas Missing children's day.

NewsChannel 11's Jennifer Vogel spoke with one family who knows all too well about missing children, as Kathy and Joe Bill Rogers talk about the two year anniversary of their missing teen, Joanna Rogers.

"Some days are good, some days are bad. Over a period of time it gets easier, but it's never easy, there's always a missing spot in your life." A father speaks about the pain only the parent of a missing child could understand. His daughter, Joanna Rogers, has now been missing for two years.

"Little things set it off. As much as we try to go on living, it gets hard." Kathy and Joe Bill say even sitting at a restaurant in California brings back happy memories.

Kathy remembers, "Sitting there at a spot she was at, lets us share something she shared."

The investigation continues to find Joanna, and learn the truth about her disappearance but until that day comes, the Rogers say they are thankful for the support of law enforcement and the community, and hope someday everyone can share in their joy when the case closes.

Kathy has this message for her daughter, "If Joanna is out there, we love her and we miss her. If we could send a message to Joanna, everybody hurts cause she's not here. If you know where she is please tell us. "
