More than a week after her waitress daughter went missing, a Texas mother said Monday it was unlikely for her to run-off. Emily Wade , the 38-year-old woman has been missing since Jan. 5, police in Ennis, 35 miles south of Dallas, Texas, said.

The missing woman worked at the local Chili’s restaurant and according to a report by NBC, she had left her house to meet a colleague for going out to a movie. The woman was last seen wearing a pair of blue jeans with peach sweater and peach stripe sneakers. She drove a 2012 silver Nissan Altima.

“If she was able to crawl to me and her daughter, she would do it," said Shirley Wade, mother of the missing woman.

“I don't think she ran off, I would bet my life on that ,” she told NBC news.

Wade said she started to get worried after her daughter didn’t reach home by 10 p.m, the day she went missing. It was when the daughter wasn’t home the following morning too, she really sensed danger.

“I’m scared I’ll never see her again alive, and I’ve never said that to anybody else, but I am scared to death ,” she told the outlet.

Meanwhile, police have questioned the man with whom the missing woman has a seven-year-old daughter.

Jared Jones, the father of Emily Wade’s daughter, told the outlet it has become difficult to keep their spirits high.

"I can see the pain in my daughter's eyes," he said. "She tries to stay strong, but I know it's gotta be eating away at her as well."

Jones told WFAA, “We don’t know what to say to her, but we’re going to have to say something to her. She’s very intuitive and she knows something is wrong.”

About the police investigation, Jones told NBC he did not object to it and just wanted the mother of his child to come back.

Authorities have also interviewed Shirley Wade, who ruled out foul play from Jones. “I don't think Jared would ever hurt the mother of his child. It would shock me.”

Police too have said they don’t count Jones as a suspect, however, they are yet to clear anyone from the case.
