PLANO -- Jonni McElroy has become a familiar face at The Shops of Legacy; that's where her daughter, Christina Morris, disappeared from in August.

“It was emotional when I pulled into the parking garage today because this is where it all happened almost three months ago," McElroy said.

McElroy,  who lives in Tulsa,  has been here every single day since Christina was reported missing Labor Day weekend. This week she made the tough decision to go home.

“I have a husband, I have a job, I have two step kids that need me, too, and they miss Christina more than everything and they need to feel my hugs, and my touch, too.” McElroy said.

She's leaving knowing that Plano PD is focusing its investigation on Enrique Arochi, the last person seen with Christina.

A recently released search warrant said Arochi showed up at his police interview with bruises and other injuries. It also concluded he "intentionally made false statements to officers which hindered detectives in locating Morris.”

“Livid.  I was speechless.  I had to take deep breaths with Anna, Christina's step-mom, and we just sat in shock and tears ran down our face," McElroy said about the warrant. Arochi has always insisted he has no idea what happened to Christina.

Before she packs up and heads home, McElroy is putting up as many posters as she can, writing messages to her missing 23-year-old daughter.

Giving up is not an option, and on some of them I`m writing 'We will find you.'”
