One year later, friends, family of missing Franklin Co mom not giving up hope

Friends and family of a missing Franklin County mom gathered Saturday to remember her and ask the public for information about her disappearance.

It's been nearly a year since Heather Hodges was last seen.  She was reported missing April 9, 2012 after she didn't return to her home on Shady Lane in Rocky Mount and her two year old daughter.  Authorities have called her disappearance "suspicious".

Saturday afternoon, friends and family organized a special event in her honor at a friend's home in Callaway.  They say they wanted to remember her by doing several of her favorite things which included a corn hole tournament and a cake walk.

They also did a raffle and held a silent auction to raise money for a reward.  They're encouraging everyone to keep looking for Hodges and to keep hope that she will be found.

"Hope is all you have,' said Wendy Nichols, a friend of Heather's and an organizer of the event. "We will never lose hope for Heather until the day we bring her home."

If you have any information about Hodges' disappearance, you're urged to call the Franklin County Sheriff's Office.
