One year ago, on May 22, 2013, Andre Price from Lumberton was killed in a motorcycle crash in Myrtle Beach on his way to the Atlantic Beach Bikefest.
Police say the driver of the van that caused the crash left the scene and still hasn't been found.
Price, 46, was driving down Highway 501 South when police say a van cut in front of him to turn onto Robert Grissom Parkway.
Price was thrown from the bike and hit the side of the van.
The van never stopped.
Price, a husband and loving father to his seven-year-old daughter Naomi, died a short time later.
"She (Naomi) and her father were very close. They were attached at the hip, and when I found out, I was hurt, but my first reaction was, oh my God, how do I explain this to Naomi? What do I say to her?," Ivory Price, Andre's wife, told us.
It's now been 365 days without Andre, including holidays, birthdays, and special occasions.
"When she'll actually just break down, and she will just cry. And then I'll ask her what's wrong, and she'll just say I miss my Daddy. I want my Daddy," Ivory told us.
Still the only lead police have is the description of the white panel work-style van with a rack and a blue tarp on top. It also has dual doors and windows on the back.
While law enforcement has spent the last year looking for the van, they're not sure if the driver was from South Carolina since it was Bikefest.
Police hope by getting the word out now, that people who were here for Bikefest last year may remember information that could help solve this case.
