ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A Hobbs mother is among those anxiously waiting for the identification of bones found near Lubbock last week.
Her daughter, 26-year-old Jennifer Wilkerson, vanished in Lubbock in 2004 while on her way home.
Her roommate found her car, keys and purse, but no Jennifer.
Last week human remains were found in Scurry County, Texas, about 80 miles southeast of Lubbock.
Investigators say they were badly decomposed and it will take some time to identify them.
In the meantime, Jennifer's mother Vikki is just waiting.
"I'm terrified it could be her I don't' want that to be the end of the story but if it is we need to know if she's out there and we need to know that," Vikki Wilkerson said.
Wilkerson says she has not been contacted by authorities, but Jennifer's dental records and DNA are already on file to be compared in situations like this.
There are several other unsolved missing people's cases in that area.
