COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - Friends and family of Paige Johnson gathered Friday evening to remember the teen on the 1-year anniversary of her disappearance.

Johnson, of Florence, was 17-years-old when she was last seen in September of 2010.

"It's indescribable," said Donna Johnson, Paige's mother. "I just miss her so much and it's been a nightmare."

Friday night was also a time to remember other missing people, including 22-year-old Katelyn Markham of Fairfield and Bill Diselvestro of Hamilton.

Those families have been a support system for Donna.

"We really connect because we know," said Johnson. "No one else really knows and understands the pain."

Donna says it's been painful watching Paige's daughter Mackenzie, grow up without a mother.

"I miss Paige so much and when I look at her daughter it breaks my heart because Paige isn't here to see her growing and things she is learning everyday, getting bigger," said Johnson.

Moving forward, Donna says everyday she prays for some closure in her daughters disappeared and wants to know what happened.

Donna believes questions can be answered by Jacob Bumpass, the last known person to see Paige. Bumpass has never been considered a suspect in the case, but has refused to talk with investigators.

"A year is a long time to wait while someone sits in silence," said Johnson. "I don't know how he could do that to us, and it's so unfair."
