NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A family is reliving all the fear and uncertainty of a missing persons case.

It's been two weeks since Wanda Faye Walker disappeared.

However, this isn't the first time her family has dealt with something like this. Wanda Walker's daughter went missing 17 years ago and was never found.

“That’s my sister. I have been knowing her for a long time and I love her,” said Rochelle Charleston, Walker's sister.

Wanda Walker's family has been scouring the Edgehill neighborhood, passing out fliers and begging for information.

“We are not going to stop until we find something to lead us to her,” said Lakesha Chambers, Walker's daughter.

Metro police said Wanda Walker was last seen with her boyfriend on Oct. 5 in the 1400 block of 11th Avenue South. She didn't show up for work at the Family Dollar store on Franklin Pike that day.

“She would not just run off and be OK and not let us know what is going on,” Chambers said.

Wanda Walker's car, a Nissan Maxima, was found on Oct. 23 parked behind a home on Wade Avenue. Police said it was locked and all of Walker's personal belongings were inside.

“I know she wouldn't do us like this because my mother is already missing. She wouldn't want us to go through that again,” Rayvon Walker said.

Rayvon Walker is the grandson of Wanda Walker and the child of Laresha Walker, who disappeared 17 years ago. He was just 2 years old at the time.

“I’m already dealing with it with my mother, gave it to God and I thought he going to bring some type of answer to me, but this happening again? It just makes you want to give up,” Rayvon Walker said.

In Laresha Walker's case, nothing was ever found. Her family said it was like she literally vanished into thin air.

“You don't have not one inkling of what could have happened. Where could she be? Who could have done it? You know, all of those questions,” Chambers said.

The family said they don't want Wanda Walker's case to be a repeat of that nightmare.

“Closure is it. Whether the outcome is good or bad, we just need to know,” Chambers said.

There are no suspects in this case because police don't have evidence to suggest foul play, but they are calling the disappearance suspicious.

Residents reported that the Wanda Walker's car had been parked behind Wade Avenue for about a week. The car was towed to the Metro Nashville Police Department Crime Laboratory for processing.

Walker is 60 years old, 5’6” tall and weighs 155 pounds. She has blonde hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information is asked to call Metro Nashville Police’s Midtown Hills Precinct at 615-880-1411 or Metro Nashville Police at 615-862-7239.
