"I called her home, still have her number, didn't get an answer, I called her church didn't get an answer," said Davis.

Davis says she and her sister had a fall out six years ago and haven't really spoken to each other since.

"She's still my sister and I've been praying that she's okay that we will find her, and if she doesn't want to contact me, that's fine just let somebody know that she's okay," said Davis.

Reports say the tornado moved through Mayflower and then continued to Vilonia. Davis believes her sister drives through Mayflower on her way to and from church Sunday evenings.

Officials released the names of all 11 victims in Faulkner County and Sylvia Ranson's name is not on that list. Still, Davis doesn't know if her sister is hurt, or at a shelter, she just wants to know she's okay.
