SMITH COUNTY (KYTX) - Elizabeth Hamilton left her house with only the clothes on her back. The only item missing is her driver's license.

"My car was gone. She wasn't here," said Lynn Day.

When Lynn Day woke up on the morning of October 25th, the only thing she found from her daughter was a note.

"The note said "went to go get cigs. Be right back" that's it," said Day.

More than week later, not a word from Elizabeth.

The last conversation was with her friend, Shelley Ramsey, through a text message, the morning she went missing.

"The last thing I heard from her was at 2:50 that morning, "you awake," and right before that it said, "I'm worried and I'm coming by," said Ramsey.

Shelley doesn't believe Elizabeth ever came by her house.

"I feel like I know I my friend and she doesn't disappear like this. And if she is going to take off, she would let me know," added Ramsey.

Elizabeth's mother says there was a mysterious number found in her daughter's cell phone records.

"There's a phone number on her phone log that we cannot figure out who it was. The phone call started on the 16th on October," said Day.

Lynn says that concerns her.  She knows Elizabeth had recently been speaking with someone.

"My main concern is that she's being held against her will . Possibly the worst thought a parent could ever have about her child is that somebody has committed the ultimate crime and murdered her," said Day.
