Peoria, Il. (WEEK) The search for Alexis Scott, the missing Peoria woman who vanished from a party two years ago, will be the focus of an episode set to air on Investigation Discovery.
The network interviewed her mother, April Allen Scott, on Friday in East Peoria.
Despite reliving the painful memories of her daughter's disappearance, Allen-Scott told 25 News she still gets nervous to talk about it, but will never let that stop her from finding her.
Alexis Scott was last seen September 23, 2017 at a house party on Richmond Street, but beyond that are question marks regarding her whereabouts.
Two years later though and the pain hasn't dissipated for Allen-Scott. While credits search groups and advocates for keeping Alexis's story alive, she worries her grandson may forget his mother, and at times even she doesn't know what to believe when it comes to the local investigation.
"Very stressful, very strenuous…It's an emotional roller coaster. I'm glad it's gonna be a national platform. I really want answers and I want to find out what's going on and the truth. If this is really a homicide and if this is what they're telling me behind closed doors then I need to know why we aren't moving forward with this case," said April Allen-Scott.
A detective from the Peoria Police Deptartment affiliated with the case was also interviewed for the piece; though their spokesperson says there are no new leads.
"365 days a year. No days off. It's continuous pain. It's continuously waking up day after day and nothing's changed. You're looking for something, in this case my daughter…to hear her voice, to see her. to hopefully have a message from her on the phone."
April says she will never give up hope that she will find Alexis, though and will continue to do whatever it takes to bring her daughter home.
The episode's tentative air date is February 2020.
