A family has not lost hope in the search for their daughter who vanished seven years ago.
Bekime “Becky” Elshani was 22 years old when she disappeared. Her family is still searching for answers.
“We think about her all the time and every day,” Becky’s father, Agim Elshani, said. “Becky was a very loving person. She was a beautiful girl.”
Two days after Becky disappeared, Becky’s boyfriend was found dead inside the apartment they shared. Police say he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Without any clues to Becky’s whereabouts, her family is still hoping to find out what happened to their daughter.
“We would like to have closure. We would like to have a grave for her, to bring flowers for her,” Elshani said.
Life without Becky has been difficult for everyone in her family.
“It hit me very hard. We were really close,” Becky’s younger sister, Fatime Elshani, said. “It still feels like a dream, so surreal.”
The Elshani family is offering a $5,000 reward for anyone who provides information on their daughter’s case.
