Police were called for a disabled vehicle in the center lane of the Inner Loop of the Beltway between I-95 and Philadelphia Road in Rosedale.
Responding officers found two people who had been struck by a car.
Amira Jennings, 17, was pronounced dead at the scene.
It has been six months since Heather Faulkner, Amira’s mother, last saw her daughter.
“I miss my daughter,” she said. “You know, I’m at the stage of acceptance. I don’t sit and wait in the house anymore. I know she’s not coming back.”
Police believe the suspect was driving a dark gray Infiniti Sedan.
“Instead of having her birthday party, I have to go see her in a box,” Faulkner said.READ MORE: COVID-19 In Maryland: 18 New Deaths Reported Saturday As Hospitalizations & Positivity Rate Continue To Decline
Maryland State Police said this is just one of four unsolved hit-and run-cases within the past year.
“We don’t know who they are at this point,” Ron Snyder, a spokesperson for Maryland State Police, said. “We’re running out of leads.”
The most recent case happened in September in Howard County. A two-person crash turned deadly when a driver in a Toyota Highlander struck three people.
Russell Eggleton, 40, was killed in the crash. His wife, Anita Eggleton, told WJZ he was a beloved EMT.
“There was damage to this car, so I feel like somebody should have seen something,” Anita Eggleton said.
No arrests have been made in either case. Both families are begging for answers.
“It’s hard,” Faulkner said. “I just want whoever did it to come forward.”MORE NEWS: Baltimore Mayor, Gov. Hogan Clash Over Available COVID Vaccine Doses For City Residents
