    CONCORD, N.C. - Smiling pictures are all that a father has to hold on to two years after his daughter disappeared.

    Crystal Morrison left work in Concord because she wasn't feeling well and no one has seen her since.

    Her father told Eyewitness News reporter Trish Williford he hopes she is found for his own closure and for her 10-year-old son.
    Rick Morrison said his heart still aches every day not knowing what happened to his beloved daughter.

    “I am more frustrated today than I was a year ago,” Morrison said.
    Crystal Morrison disappeared on Aug. 23, 2012, before she left work at Connextions on International Drive in Concord.
    Family members said she called a friend to pick her up but when that friend arrived, Crystal Morrison's employer said she already left.
    Witnesses saw Morrison was seen walking down International Drive and went inside McDonald's and to buy a soda.
    Morrison then walked outside the restaurant and vanished.
    Concord police investigators searched for weeks and family members offered a cash reward but there was no information about what happened to Crystal Morrison.
    Rick Morrison is now the sole provider of her son.
    “Yes, he misses his mom dearly. He does ask questions about her,” Rick Morrison said.
    Rick Morrison just wants closure.
    “Just be a human being, step up. If you don't step up as a human being, step up for the money,” he said.

    The family will hold a rally Saturday in Crystal Morrison's honor.
    The family and supporters will walk from International Drive to Davidson Highway in Concord where she disappeared.
