The family's concern heightened after learning authorities found Dawson's car burnt to its metal frame on rural Chambers County Road 96.
Investigators say the search continues for the missing woman who is five months pregnant and the mother of a seven year old boy.
Her aunt describes her as a mom who would never go one day without calling her son.
"He's having a very rough time. He's having a very rough time. He's cried a lot. He's asking for her. He's missing her a lot," said Barnes describing how Dawson's son is coping.
Barnes says her niece is a hard worker and has served in the Army with one deployment to Afghanistan. Now, her aunt says Dawson is a member of the Army Reserve, is kind, and loves family. The worried family begs for anyone's help to find the missing woman.
"Please, for her son's sake, for her grandparents on both sides sake, for her aunts and uncles on both sides. Please just help us have closure," said Barnes.
