AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

A missing pregnant woman's family is begging for your help in finding the 31-year-old mother.  Cheri Dawson's family last saw her on Saturday evening. 

Charlotte Barnes, the missing woman's aunt, says she has had sleepless nights all week.

"What bothers me the most is I can feel that something is wrong because I usually would get a text from her.  She would not allow me to worry like this because she knows I would worry," said Barnes.

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.

If you have any information on where Cheri Dawson is you are encouraged to contact your local police department.
