EARLTON, N.Y. -- "Do you really got much of a choice? You got to keep going," said Raymond Turk Jr.
Every year Turk Jr. rides his motorcycle for his sister, Audrey May Herron. As he will, this Saturday. "Aw, just a great person, very loving, outgoing," he described her.
It's been ten years since she disappeared. The mother of three was last seen August 29, 2002. She was driving home from her job at a Catskill healthcare center.
"Anyone out there that's got a sister, put yourself in my shoes. You would want to know too," Turk Jr. said.
There is not much that family and friends do know, and there are no signs of Audrey's black Jeep either. That's why Marie Parker, Raymond, and Audrey's father, the late Ray Sr., began the annual Riding for Audrey event.
"We thought we'd raise a reward for her and somebody would come forward," said Parker, Audrey's friend.
This weekend's bike run will be the last.
"I'm kind of sad to see it end, because we're going to have to try to think of some other way to keep her name alive," said Audrey's Stepmother, Jeanne Turk.
However, until there are answers, family and friends won't give up hope.
"She's out there somewhere and I hope someday someone tells us," said Parker.
"I want to know what happened, closure, you know," said Turk Jr.
Riding for Audrey will be held at Brennan's School House Inn on Route 81 in Earlton. For more information, visit Riding4audrey.com.
