Missing Louisiana Teen's Sister: 'She Is Our Heart And We Want Her Home'

Jacquelyn "Daisy Lynn" Landry vanished after leaving home to walk to a friend's house last week.

A Louisiana woman has taken to social media in a desperate effort to generate leads in the search for her missing sister.

“We miss her [and] we love her,” Lori Landry Sonnier said in a video posted to the “Finding Daisy Lynn” Facebook page on Saturday. “I don’t care what’s happened, what’s been done ... she is part of our family. She is our heart and we want her home.”

Jacquelyn “Daisy Lynn” Landry, 18, was last seen on Thursday, when she left her Lafayette home to go to a friend’s house, according to Sonnier. Landry never arrived and no one has heard from her.

Lafayette’s KATC-TV 3 reported Landry’s phone is either turned off or the battery is dead. Family members say the teen has never gone this long without being in contact with them.

“We are still looking for our girl,” reads a Tuesday post on the “Finding Daisy Lynn” Facebook page. “Pray and pray hard for our baby girl and her safety.”

Landry is described as a white female, about 5 feet tall and 105 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. She has a tattoo of a Chinese symbol above her left breast, a small triangle tattoo on the inside of her right wrist, a burn mark above her right breast and a burn mark on the outside of her left forearm, according to the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Anyone with information about Landry’s whereabouts is asked to call the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office at 337-232-9211 or Crimestoppers at 337-232-TIPS.
