The family of a missing girl put up a billboard in Tulsa Friday, hoping for leads that will help them find their daughter.

Adrianna Garcia was 15 years old when she disappeared on December 29, 2004.

Her family says she was last seen walking to a friend's house 11 years ago.

Adrianna's family worked with the national nonprofit organization, LostNMissing, Inc. to hold a fundraiser to pay for two highway signs.

The first was erected Friday and is expected to remain for at least 30 days, possibly up to a year.

Garcia family spokesperson Karen Ranoni says, " is vitally important that the public recognize that Adrianna is still missing and that law enforcement needs leads as to her disappearance." She added, "The best way is through recognition and awareness, which is what these billboards can hopefully bring. "

Adrianna's mother, Marianne says her pain is overwhelming and she wonders every day if her daugher is safe. "How can anyone carry this secret for 11 years and not speak up?"

Adrianna would be 26 years old now.

Anyone with information about her disappearance can contact the Creek County Sheriff's Deputy Jeremy Plane at 918-224-4964 and refer to case number 11-012.

Tipsters can remain anonymous.
