EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - It has been one year since Dawnita Wilkerson went missing.

She was last seen one year ago this weekend in Evansville.

Saturday morning, Dawnita’s family held a walk at Wesselman Park.

They were asking for donations to help with reward money, advertising and to help take care of her twin girls.

”The family has just had a long struggle this year,” said Faye Cardin, Dawnita’s aunt. “Not knowing, wanting to know, and cannot be told what needs to be known. And what we do know, we have a hard time working with it and dealing with it. Our emotions are from every which way. There are sometimes words we can’t say. Because we can’t really describe how we feel.”

Dawnita went missing from an Evansville motel.

Just months ago, investigators revealed the last known image of her.

When we checked in with police this week, they told us they had no update in the case.

If you know of her whereabouts, you’re asked to call the FBI or the Evansville Police Department.
