Investigators continue to comb through the nearby land for any clues as to what happened. Her family rushed to Turkey to help find her, but are now devastated.

"You have so many thoughts going through your mind," said Steven Sierra, her husband. "You don't know what to think, you don't know what to believe. You don't know what to expect, and you don't know what is going to come out of this."
