A South Jersey woman is searching for her missing wedding dress.
"Every woman feels beautiful on her wedding day and I really did. From my hair, to my makeup and my wedding dress."
Rosalynne Plum had what every woman wants on her big day.
"It was perfect. It fit me perfectly," she said as she talked about her dream dress.
"It's a cream color. It has like beading all on the front of it." She says what made it even more special is that her mother helped her pick out and buy the dress. Her mother died a year later.
"She never got to do that with her mom. My mom was 16 almost 17 when my grandmother died. Just to know how much my mom did to get it for me," she said tearfully.
But just this past summer Rosalynne realized her dress was gone. She says it was in a unit her mom rented at a storage facility in West Deptford. Rosalynne took it over after her mother died but says she struggled to make the payments and found out it went up for auction. She's been on a mission ever since to find her dress.
"I called the storage unit and they obviously couldn't tell me any particulars about the person who bought it." So she says she contacted the auction company which passed her contact information on to the person who bought the unit. Rosalynne says she got an email from someone who admitted having the wedding dress and offered to arrange to get it to her.

But after a series of email exchanges she says she never heard from that mystery person again.
"Nothing. Nothing? Nothing," she said. She posted on Facebook about her missing dress hoping someone returns it. She feels it's the only chance she has left of finding the person who has it.
"I'm just begging for mercy from somebody that they've seen this wedding dress," said Rosalynne.
