WAIPAHU, Hawaii -

As we celebrate moms on Sunday, three young boys are hoping to see theirs once again. The return of the three kidnapped women in Cleveland has given hope to other missing person cases. Caliph, Cameron, and Cairo, are spending mother's day by looking through photos of their mom. Caliph remembers seeing her, right before she left for work, and never returned, a year ago.

"I just saw her come out of the bathroom, and she didn't want to disturb us so she walked out and went to work," said Caliph Wideman.

The Waipahu mother, Loida Gubon-Wideman, left home for the night shift at Kapolei Nursing Home. The next morning the family knew something was wrong.

"My mother called me crying over the phone, your sister has not come back from work," said Gubon's sister Mary Grace De Guzman.

A week after her disappearance police found her Saturn, unlocked, parked along a Pearl City Street, far from her work place. But, there was no trace of her, or evidence of what could have happened. The family believes she is still out there wanting to come home.

"I was hoping, I thought she would come back today because I thought that she probably maybe went away for a little bit to get the stress out of her, and then I thought she's come back today, on Mother's Day," said Caliph.

"Who ever did this to my sister please send her home. I know you have the heart, so please send her home," pleaded De Guzman.

"There's someone that probably knows my mom and knows what happened to her but didn't tell us," said Caliph.

Gabon was 5'2" and about 134 pounds. Her missing persons case has since gone cold. The family asks if you have any information to call police.
