ROBERTSON CO., Tenn. -- It has been 10 years since Jennifer and Adrianna Wix went missing in Robertson County. Investigators believe the mother and daughter were murdered, and family members hope the case will soon be solved.

Motorcycles and riders form a chain of hope across Robertson County. "We're here and we just want everyone to remember them, and we just want some kind of closure," says Jennifer's sister Casey Wix.

They ride is in remembrance of 21 year old Jennifer Wix, and her two year old daughter Adrianna. It has been 10 years since they disappeared under mysterious circumstances. "It's harder on some days than it is on other days. It's hard everyday," says Casey Wix.

Jennifer and Adrianna were dropped off at a gas station by Jennifer's boyfriend, who claims he saw them get into a car. For years the case has lingered, then in December investigators decided to classify it as a homicide.
This Chain of Hope ride has become an annual tradition marking the anniversary of the disappearance. Kathy Nale is Jennifer's mother. "I go to bed every night wondering what happened to my children, and I wake up every morning wondering if today is the day I find them," says Nale.

After 10 years, there is desperation to solve this case. "I have a driving force, and I have a mission, and no matter how tired I am, I'll keep on going," says Nale.

The family now believes they'll never find Jennifer and Adrianna alive, but they hope to one day find their remains and have someone go to jail. They release balloons wishing for the answers they have gone too long without. "If you're praying people, I just ask you to pray for me and my family, my girls, the detectives, the person who knows to come forward, and the person who did it," says Kathy Nale.

Family members say the investigation appears to be going well, but they're not sure if detectives are any closer to making an arrest.
