Rain poured down on Oak Island Park Saturday morning as friends and family gathered once again to search for Stephanie Low.
This isn't the first time they have searched in inclimate weather, and it may not be the last.
For Stephanie's mother, the searching is a sign that they will never give up hope.
"Until I am told otherwise, or until she is found, I will have hope. I will have hope that she is out there and needs me to find her." says Stephanie's mother Claudia Blake.
Blake is a mom on a mission. Her goal is to find out what happened that fateful night in October 2010 when her beloved daughter disappeared.
However Blake can't do it alone, that is why she relies on the help of people like Christine Reimer to help in the searching efforts.
Reimer says following up on leads is key.
"Ruling out places is the best we can do because then we know we hit that area. We are going through things, tips, leads, talk of the town, checking everywhere you can." Reimer says.
It is hard to imagine what it must be like for a mother to have so many unanswered questions about what happened to her daughter.
For Claudia Blake, continuing to actively search is far better for her emotionally than focusing on the unknown.
"I wouldn't be able to function if I focused on that. I have to focus of finding her and what to do to bring her home and get answers." Blake says.
Stephanie's friends and family say they will continue to do that for as long it takes, no matter how much rain, or snow they have to deal with.
