It's day four of the search for a missing UALR student. Saturday, Patricia Guardado's friends expanded their search efforts to downtown Little Rock hoping someone knows what happened.
Police found Guardado's car unharmed in a South University parking lot after she didn't show up for class Wednesday.
"We should be here for her. Right now, what she's going through, we don't know," says friend Amy Berrones.
Friends and family members met up Saturday morning to search for the missing 20-year-old in the UALR neighborhood where police found her abandoned car this week.
"We're gonna find her," says friend Christian Alvidrez.
"We have faith that we will find her alive," said Berrones.
"Keep an eye out because we're gonna find her," said cousin Gabriela Guardado. "It's affecting a lot of us. Not just her family, her friends, her classmates and we just want to know something."
"If we have to not sleep to get everybody to know that she's missing, that's what we're gonna try to do," says family friend Yolanda Ramos.
Wearing white as a sign of hope, Guardado's friends say they have no reason to believe the college student ran off on her own.
"She was reserved to herself and she wasn't one of those people that you could say that she was a partier or a crazy person," says Ramos. "Think about it as your own family member, you know, would you want somebody to
come forward and talk and say something? Because she has a family."
