An Acadiana family is holding on to hope that their daughter is still alive.

It has now been six years since Crystal Dupuis Grebinger went missing.

Family say she was last seen in February 2013 leaving Faith House shelter for abused and battered women.

“It’s been a long six years,” said Grebinger’s dad Randy Dupuis. “My greatest wish is that we find her and bring her home as soon as possible. That’s our main focus, just finding her and getting her home.”

Grebinger, a mother of four, was 32-years-old when she went missing. Her family and friends still question her disappearance.

“Crystal would have come home to her babies,” said Heather Huval. “She’s a fighter and she would have fought her way to find home, that’s how I know there was something. She would be home. She loved her kids so very much.”

Grebinger’s disappearance is being investigated by Lafayette Police and so far, no new clues.

“”I think that’s the most painful thing we go through,” Huval said. “Not knowing, nothing new…nothing. It’s heartbreaking.”

There is a $10,000 reward for anyone with information leading to Grebinger. Her family and friends are continuing to place fliers around Acadiana to bring attention to this case.

According to court records, Grebinger had filed numerous protective orders against her husband in two parishes and over several years.

He was formally charged with violating at least one of those protective orders three times. She filed for divorce two weeks before her disappearance, court records show.

Shortly after her disappearance, her husband gave an interview to a local newspaper, saying he was living in Brazil.
