BREAUX BRIDGE, La. -

The search continues to identify a woman, who was killed, near Breaux Bridge six years ago.

The woman, to this day, remains unidentified, and one group is on a mission to help bring closure to her family. 

Thirty-six Christmases ago, she was hit by a car driving west on I-10. Her body was buried in a nearby cemetery where she lies unnamed and alone. 

"If this was my son, I would really hope someone would care enough to find out who he belonged to," says Catalene Theriot. Theriot's son passed away, and she spent two years unsure of how or why.

Theriot and her group, "Voices of Innocent Civilians Empowered," or "V.O.I.C.E.," set out to solve this mystery.

They had the woman's body exhumed ten years ago to get DNA.

"We know, as families, we want to know what happened to our loved one, and someone out there does not know what happened to their loved one," says Theriot.

There have been no new developments, but the group is trying, through social media and word of mouth, to spread the word about this girl. 

"It would be such a Christmas miracle if we could find out who she belonged to. That would be a miracle. Every Christmas, I think we will bring it up. We're not giving up on it, I'll put it that way," says Theriot.
