SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – Candles were lit for a Springfield woman missing for more than a year.

Family and friend of Amanda Ward-Romine are holding hope someone has information on the missing 30-year-old.

“It’s been heartbreaking,” said Carolin Ward, Romine’s stepmother. “Sometimes you think you could just scream if it would do any good.”

Ward has been Romine’s stepmother since she was eight-years-old.

She said this time of year brings back hard memories. The holiday season was always Amanda’s favorite.

“She loved the holidays,” said Ward. “She was always late coming in for the meals. That was a big joke that Amanda was always late.”

Since her disappearance in July 2013, Amanda’s family has done several vigils.

Gathering at a fountain in downtown Springfield, they light candles, reminisce, and release balloons in her honor.

As time continues to pass, this family vows never to give up hope they’ll find the answers they are wanting.

“I just hope somebody comes forward and at least tells us where her body is,” said Aliya Lindsey, Romine’s older sister. “Just so we can put her to rest like she’s supposed to be.”

Anyone with information in her disappearance is asked to call the Springfield Police Department.
