The following is a message from Alina Durham to her daughter Shaelene Bell for mother’s day. Shaelene is the mother of two young boys, and she was last seen in Chilliwack on Jan. 30.

This is a tribute to you Shaelene. From your whole family and especially your boys. Mommy, you gave us life. You nurtured us. You held us, and most importantly you loved us unconditionally and advocated for us. You are in our hearts for ever. We love you mommy.

We all wish you a Happy Mother’s Day. We are thinking of you with lots of love in our hearts. Hope you can feel it.

Stay strong whereever you are. Do not give up.

You are in my thoughts continuously Shae, and glued in my heart forever.

We all miss you so, so much. We will never give up hope to bring you home!

I would also like to take the time to say Happy Mother’s Day to all missing moms around the world.

Alina Durham
