BERKELEY (KMOV.com) -

Police are still searching for 25-year-old Monica Sykes, who disappeared on October 27. It's been one month since the search began and there are still no leads in the case. 

Her family placed more than 5,000 fliers all over, desperately trying to find her. Her mother, Regina Sykes, said she hasn’t slept since her daughter went missing and believes she is being held against her will. 

“We noticed something wasn't right because she normally texts and calls her older sister that she lives with every day. We had not heard from her and when we tried to call her cell phone, it goes to voicemail. We knew something was wrong,” said Sykes.

Sykes contacted Berkeley police and Interim Police Chief Art Jackson said they still are working to find out how she disappeared, but they need the public’s help.

"This could be anyone's family member and you would want someone who has seen since her or know her whereabouts to come forward,” said Chief Jackson.

It's something Regina is confident will happen. She just can't even imagine the thought of never seeing her youngest daughter again.

"My belief is that if you know who she is, if you seen her, if she's with you, let her call home. Let her call her sister. Let her call and tell us that she is okay,” said Sykes.
