ROBESON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - For nearly a week now, crews have been searching fields and wooded areas around Robeson County, and still there's no sign of 18-year-old Sara Graham.

"I'm still lost, I just don't know how to deal with that situation," said Hubert Graham, Sara's father.

Sara Graham had moved in with her father Hubert only a few months before she went missing.

He says this whole experience came out of nowhere.

Last Tuesday night they were watching TV together, then Wednesday morning she disappeared on her way to work.

"I can't even describe it," explained Graham. "It's kind of like a daze, days go by and you're constantly questioning and asking, is there something else I can do? "

One thing Graham has done is separate himself from the situation. He's been a sergeant with the Robeson County Sheriff's Office for years, and knows what goes into a search like this.

"I know I'm not gonna be able to control my emotion in the situation," Graham explained. "It's hard to do this line of work with emotion tied in because eventually it's going to get the best of you."

The search has gotten the best of everyone so far. Search teams made up of departments from all over the region have spent the past few days searching everywhere.

Tuesday, those teams got a quick break, while investigators followed different leads.

Graham says at this point he doesn't care where she is or who she's with… he just wants one thing.

"Just to hear that she's ok would be the greatest news I could ever get," He said.

The search efforts are set to start up again around 9 a.m. Wednesday. The sheriff's office says any volunteers are welcome to come help. ?

If you have any information regarding Sara Graham, call 911.
