The page could ultimately help find Metheny, Mullins said.
Daniel continues to hold on to hope that someday, someone may find her daughter.
"I pray every day that we find her," Daniel said. "But every year it gets harder."
Mullins also prays for her friend.
"We'll never stop looking for her," Mullins said. "Every family deserves closure, answers."
But neither Mullins nor Daniel has found closure even though seven years have passed since Metheny vanished.
"I don't know if we'll ever find closure," Daniel said.
Madonna Layne, who attended the event Saturday, understands what the women have gone through. She lost her mother 39 years ago and calls the experience "haunting."
Layne now works for the CUE Center -- an organization that continues to search for missing people years after they disappeared.
"I don't believe that I can find my mother, but I can help others," Layne said.
Layne believes that the family and friends who gathered at Coonskin on Saturday should simply continue to hope that Metheny remains alive."If a family gives up hope, they're lost," Layne said.
