A Tri-State family is still seeking answers.

Family of Evansville mother Dawnita Wilkerson say she's been missing since June 21st.

A benefit event was held on Saturday at Garvin Park hoping to bring awareness to her case and bring her back home.

Family says everyone was asked to wear pink, her favorite color.

"We want people to realize that they have something on their cameras," says Julia Womack, Wilkerson's Aunt. "They have something on their phone that could be evidence, and we also want you to know that this is a community thing. People are missing, not just in our family, 15 people are missing in Evansville and Mount Vernon alone."

Wilkerson's family say proceeds raised will go towards caring for Wilkerson's children, money for a reward, and to help cover costs in an effort to find her.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Evansville Police.
