Volunteers have been scouring an are south of downtown Houston, looking for any sign of DeJesus.

"You know, we just trust it in the faith of God to bring her back home alive," said DeJesus' sister, Guilly Puente.

Puente says her family still believes that DeJesus will return safe. It's been days since the woman's abduction at gunpoint from a Pearland shopping center and the family continues to do what it can for her.

"We had about 40 to 50 volunteers at the Laura Recovery Center and then we also passed out fliers throughout Houston, just trying to get as much of the Houston coverage that we can," said Puente.

DeJesus was forced into her own car, a vehicle equipped with On Star satellite assistance. It's hoped that information can be used to track the vehicle's path after the abduction.

"It's been twelve days and local law enforcement agencies knew about this. She also had a navigation system in there as well as the On Star and it's been 12 days and we don't have any word on that yet," said Puente.

Volunteers will be meeting at 9am at the Bass Pro Shop Outdoor World at Highway 288 and Beltway 8 to search for DeJesus. Family members are hoping more volunteers will come out. They say that even if you only have a couple of hours to spare, they could still use your help.

If you want more information on how you can take part in the search, call the Laura Recovery Center at 281-482-5723.

If you have any information that could help find DeJesus, you are asked to call Brazoria County Crime Stoppers. That number is 1-800-460-2222. There is a reward of up to $17,500 in this case.
