SENECA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

As they flipped through a book of memories filled with pictures of holidays and smiles of loved ones each picture represents a special chapter in their lives.

But, one particular picture happens to be one of the Carver's favorites.

"She was tender hearted as she could be. She'd just do anything for anybody she could," Shirley Carver said.

The picture is the last photo that captured her daughter Sheila Carver nearly 15 years ago before she disappeared.

"We remember that day June 16. I'm pretty sure it was on a Saturday and she come by here on Thursday. She was never gone over a day or two," Shirley Carver said.

So, she and her husband, Bert Carver, said they knew something was something was wrong and that's when he reported his daughter missing.

"I mean there ain't a day goes by you know that you don't think about her," Bert Carver said.

Investigators with the Oconee County Sheriff's Office said according to reports, 33-year-old Sheila Carver left her mobile home in Seneca, which she shared with her boyfriend, after midnight with someone. Deputies said that person told them Sheila Carver changed her mind and was dropped off at Goddard Avenue near the Utica Mill hill so she could walk back home.

"It's time that we know what happened and where she's at," Bert Carver said.

And although this is officially a missing person's case, the Carvers said they believe their daughter is gone for good.

"We'd just like to know where she's at, where we can put her to rest like she needs to be," Bert Carver said.

And so they said they're praying to soon close this chapter of their lives so they can find peace.

"I really loved her and I sure would like to know. So somebody please come forward and let us know something," Shirley Carver said.

Even if it's not the picture perfect ending they hoped for.

"I know she knew that we loved her," Bert Carver said. "And we really appreciate what the sheriff and investigators with the sheriff's office are doing."

Right now, there is a $10,000 reward and an additional $2,000 for anyone with information that can help solve the case. Over the next several weeks investigators with the Oconee County Sheriff's Office will profile a cold case in hopes of generating new leads.

If you have any information about the case you can call Crime Stoppers at 638-STOP or 1-888-CRIME-SC.
