JACKSONVILLE, Ark. - With the summer solstice just days away, Lillian Satterfield's hopes of finding her missing 2-year-old daughter again - after more than eight months - are fading.

On Monday, Satterfield walked around the block several times, asking for help from anyone who might have seen her daughter, Eliza Satterfield. She is a bit gaunt from the past month or so and looks to be suffering from the lack of sleep, as well as an overabundance of stress and worry. She is dressed in a pink T-shirt and white shorts. Her white sneakers are scuffed from walking. She has long hair pulled back in a messy ponytail. She looks around nervously, searching for signs of her daughter.

"I want Eliza back, and I don't want no more to happen to her," said Satterfield, 26. "There's nobody who can help me but myself. I'm asking you to pray for me, because God's been trying to tell me what to do."

For more than a year, Satterfield and Eliza have lived in the 900 block of Bixby Avenue. On Monday, their yellow house was full of signs that the girl was still in the area.

The house, on a corner lot with a few other small structures, had a "help us" sign on the front lawn. Inside, a missing persons flyer was taped to a wall. Inside, the air conditioning was cranked, and the house looked warm, despite the 90-degree weather.

On the porch, two large dogs slept under a shade tent.

Satterfield, who is originally from California, and Eliza moved to the country in the late fall, in search of a different life. They had spent the past few years living in California, where Satterfield was in a relationship with a man who did not care for Eliza. She said she and Eliza lived together for more than six months, until she decided she didn't want to be in that relationship anymore.

"Eliza's just like my daughter," said Satterfield. "I love her to death. I'm just trying to get her back."

A few weeks later, in the middle of May, Satterfield said she received a call from someone who asked for her phone number. It was Eliza, and she asked for help finding her mom.

"When I got the call, I was shocked," said Satterfield. "I got a little bit afraid. I didn't want her to cry or cry for me. I just wanted her to know that she wasn't going to be alone anymore."

After she took the phone call, Satterfield said she put the matter on the back burner. Eliza had told her mother that she was in trouble, but that was all she would say.

"She just wanted me to come get her," said Satterfield.

Eliza's mother didn't believe her at first, and she went to work, leaving the baby with a baby-sitter. Later that day, she told her boyfriend what had happened. He told her that Eliza was in the
