The renewed effort to find a missing Dallas woman has compelled a group of her friends to go door-to-door, armed only with a piece of paper and a prayer.

The renewed effort to find a missing Dallas woman has compelled a group of her friends to go door-to-door, armed only with a piece of paper and a prayer.

Lisa Stone, 51, was last seen on June 5, 2010, at her home in the 3300 block of Truxillo Road.  Wherever she went, she left her personal belongings behind, along with her cat and her car.

Police have investigated and, according to friends, identified multiple persons of interest in Stone's disappearance.  But detectives have not been able to uncover enough evidence to bring any charges.

That is why Stone's friends have made up hundreds of flyers that read, "Have you seen Lisa Stone?" 

The flyer also prominently displays the notice of a $10,000 reward that is being offered by Crime Stoppers for information leading to an arrest and indictment for a felony crime in connection to Stone's disappearance.

"We need to start back at square one with Lisa's case," said Tina Stringer, who is coordinating the flyer campaign.  "We need to revive this case.  We need to hit the streets and get the word out."

A judge declared Stone legally dead this past summer, and Stringer admits she holds little hope of ever seeing her friend alive again.

"I just feel that somebody around here knows something.  Maybe they heard something -  maybe it didn't seem important at the time," Stringer told NBC 5.  "So I think it's just vitally important to get the word out again."

The friends have also created a website dedicated to the search, as well as a Facebook group.
