JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The search continues for missing Jones County teenager Alison Walker.

“We love you, we miss you and we just want you home, we just want you safe,” said Walker's step-sister Tasha Jones.

The 16-year-old was last seen at a gas station on Lower Myrick Road and Highway 15 South. Her family said they've been looking for her since Wednesday.

“It's very exhausting,” said Jones. “I mean you worry day and night where she is, you can't sleep and it's just, it's nerve-racking it really is.”

The Jones County Sheriff's Department said they've checked several locations and have interviewed a few people, but still no luck in locating Walker.

“At this time the Jones County Sheriff's Department has no other leads to follow up on,” said Major Jamie Tedford. “We've exhausted every effort to follow up on the local leads that we have around here. We have her on NCIC, which is a national inquiry database.”

Anyone with information on Walker's whereabouts is asked to contact the sheriff's department at 601-425-3147.

“Whoever has her, or wherever she may be, just please let us know because we love her and we want her home,” said Jones.
