Reye's mother was inconsolable, "She was amazing ..... a beautiful daughter the best daughter to me. I could say so many things but I just want justice for my daughter."

Investigators say Reyes was missing since Jan 29th no one in the town where she grew up knew where she was all that's left here are candles and flowers well over 100 people showed up at the park to console this heartbroken family.
