"She was a very popular person in high school," Pickett said. "A lot of people love her."

Pickett added that Sony's five children miss her greatly.

"It leaves so much frustration in so many areas," she said. "There are the children. We're all working together as a family in dealing with them to help nurture and comfort them in this particular time."

They are now hoping for her safe return.
