It's been three years since 15-year-old Rachel Owens was last seen by her family and investigators say there are no new leads.

Saturday, the Owens family filed into the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office to ask the public for their help in finding the missing teen.

"We're here today, to make a plea to the public regarding our missing daughter Rachel Natacha Owens," Kenneth Owens, Rachel's father, said. As the youngest of six children, he said she is very outgoing.

"We love her and we miss her, and if she is listening we want her to know we want her back in our lives," Owens said.

Rachel, also known as Raquel, was last seen on May 5, 2011 at South Brunswick High School.  Surveillance video captured her getting into a dark colored car, possibly with South Carolina licenses plates.

Investigators are asking for any leads about Rachel's whereabouts or who was driving the car.

"Every lead will be followed up with," Candi West said.

Although no one has heard from Rachel in three years, her case remains a missing persons investigation.

"We are working this investigation like Rachel is still out there, watching this and listing to us," West said.

Investigators are not limiting the search to North Carolina, if you have any information about Rachel Owens you are asked to call the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office or the nearest American Embassy.
