PLANO - It's now been seven months since anyone has seen 23-year-old Christina Morris.

"I've spent most of my morning crying. Surreal that we're even here seven months later," Christina's mother Jonni McElroy said.  "I haven't gotten to see my daughter's face. I haven't gotten to hear her beautiful voice, see her smile."

The man last seen with her on surveillance video at the Shops at Legacy in Plano is being held at the Collin County Jail.

"I just don't understand why one human being that caused all of this seven months ago cannot just do the right thing and tell us where Christina is. I just don't get it. Somebody knows something," McElroy said.

"I've written him a two-page letter. It's the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I told Enrique I forgive him. Christina forgives him. God will forgive him, but he has to ask for forgiveness and want to do the right thing."

For this family, it's been seven months way too long.

"It's the worst pain you can endure," McElroy said through the tears. "When you get up every day and you know you're going to put those boots on to go search and pray for that one clue. I still feel like Christina is alive and she's out there."
