WASHINGTON -

Three years after her daughter disappeared, a Virginia mother is making a renewed plea for anyone with information about the case to come forward.

Bethany Decker was last seen by her boyfriend at her apartment along Orchard Grass Terrace in Ashburn, Va., on January 29, 2011.

Her mother, Kim Nelson, tells FOX 5, "Every day when the phone rings, if it's an unknown caller, could that be her or somebody calling about her?"

The 21-year-old was pregnant when she vanished. She also has a son who is now four years old.

Decker was legally married, but had been living with a boyfriend, and she was attending school at George Mason University. According to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, he was the last person to see her.

Her car was left behind in the parking lot of her apartment complex. A thorough records search indicates that she did not leave the country. There has been no activity on her bank accounts, cell phones or email.

Kim Nelson believes her daughter is alive and says, "If she could tell us she was out there and safe, I think she would, but I'm not sure that she's able to do that."

Decker was reported missing February 19, 2011 by her family and authorities have been trying to locate her ever since.

The case is listed officially as a "missing person" and anyone who has any information about it is asked to contact Detective S. Schochet at 703-777-0475. Callers wishing to remain anonymous are asked to call Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919.
