LITHIA, Fla. — After 26 years, a woman in Hillsborough County is still searching for answers in the disappearance of her 18-year-old daughter and 4-month-old grandson.

Bonnie Lee Dages and her son Jeremy Lee Dages haven't been seen since they left the Lithia home where they were staying on April 28, 1993.

Dages' mother, Linda Hershberger is representing her daughter and grandson on Friday for the Florida Missing Children's Day ceremony in Tallahassee.

Dages and her son left their home for the intersection of Lithia Pinecrest and Lumsden Roads, where a Kash 'N Karry used to sit.

Dages was supposed to be meeting her boyfriend, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says.

Two days later, deputies found the van she was driving still sitting in the Kash 'N Karry's parking lot. The mother and son haven't been seen since.

Hershberger is speaking about the case in the hope that someone with information will come forward and finally end more than two decades of questions.
