Missing in Columbus: son, sister, mother

COLUMBUS, OH (WCMH) - A mother, a sister and a daughter. This is a group of women who have been searching for their loved ones for over a decade.

"We all belong to a club we don't want to belong to," said Judy Rafferty, mother of Andrew Chapman.

Taking advantage of the large crowds at Ohio State's football game, these women passed out fliers while holding posters of their loved ones, hoping someone recognizes their faces.

"We need answers and we are going to find answers," said Kathy Huber, daughter of Barbara Frame.

Kathy Huber's mother Barbara Frame went missing 33-years ago; she was last seen leaving her home in Zanesville.

"It is surprising that there are so many people here that are missing," said Mandy Licon-Conner, sister of Carla Losey.

Mandy Licon-Conner says there is never a day she doesn't think about her sister Carla Losey who has been missing since 2002. She went to work on New Year's Eve and hasn't been seen since.

"She was suppose to go to my mother's house the day after and then she never showed up," said Licon-Conner.

Judy Rafferty is the reason why all these women are here. She is the mother of Andrew Chapman. Her Facebook page, Help find Andrew Chapman has gained over 500 likes as she continues to search for her son 12-years later.

"He lived on the west side of Columbus. I went to see him one day and he was no longer living there. He has just disappeared," said Rafferty.

Five women with one goal in mind. And they won't stop searching until they find the missing.

"You can never give up hope. I know God knows were he is, but we don't so in the mean time we will keep looking for him," said Rafferty.
