Peoria, Il. (HOI) - A national television show is shining a light on a Peoria woman's disappearance.

An episode of Investigation Discovery next year focuses on Alexis Scott. The network interviewed her mother, April Allen Scott, on Friday. April told us Friday that it still hurts like it did more than two years when Alexis vanished.

April credits search groups and advocates with keeping the search alive, but she worries her grandson may forget his mother, and at times even she doesn't know what to believe.

"Very stressful, very strenuous…It's an emotional roller coaster. I'm glad it's gonna be a national platform. I really want answers and I want to find out what's going on and the truth. If this is really a homicide and if this is what they're telling me behind closed doors then I need to know why we aren't moving forward with this case," said April Allen Scott.

April says she will never give up hope that she will find Alexis.

The episodes tentative air date is February 2020.
