ALLEN (CBSDFW.COM) - The search for missing woman Christina Morris has been going on for months now, and has still turned up nothing. Friends and family members conducted another search on Friday. Those who are closest to Morris said that this has gone on for too long, and it is time to bring her home.

The Fort Worth woman went missing back in August. She was last seen on surveillance camera footage at The Shops at Legacy in Plano with Enrique Arochi. On the video, the two people are seen walking into a parking garage. Police stated that DNA evidence led them to Arochi's arrest.

According to police records obtained on Friday, officers found a "significant amount of DNA" in Arochi's car. The DNA came from the blood and saliva of a female. It was recovered from the edge of the car's trunk opening. The police search and arrest warrants suggest that Arochi left the parking garage "with Christina Morris in the trunk" of his car.

The chilling documents state that a phone belonging to Morris was pinging cell towers while she was allegedly locked in the trunk of the car. Authorities believe that Arochi even returned to The Shops at Legacy with Morris still inside of the trunk.

The suspect was back at his home in Allen about 40 minutes after the alleged abduction. The warrants also suggest that Arochi had intended to sexually "violate or abuse" Morris, and that he may have become angry when his advances were rejected.

Arochi has been charged with aggravated kidnapping in connection to the woman's disappearance. He has maintained his innocence in this case. The whereabouts of Morris are still not known.

A search group met on Friday at the Allen Performing Arts Center, near Allen High School. Similar searches have been held in the past, and flyers have been going around, but very little new information has been found.

Friends and family members said that they have not lost hope, and still believe that Morris is alive somewhere.  They will conduct another search on Saturday.
