It's been over three months and there's been no sign of Loraine Pino of Boca Raton. Detectives revealed Monday that the 47-year-old woman went missing just after a fight with her husband. 
 
Her son and sisters stood together with Palm Beach County Sheriff's Detective Christopher Carey to make a plea to the community. 
 
"My mom honestly was the rock in the entire family," said Jonathan Otero, the missing woman's son.
 
Loraine is described as a loving mother, grandmother, and sister. 
 
"These past three months, it's just pretty much felt empty," added Otero. 
 
Detective Carey says just before Loraine disappeared, she had an argument with her husband about separating after 11 years of marriage. 
 
"Mr. Pino was cooperative initially," said Detective Carey. "As time went on, as we continue to investigate, he felt it prudent to obtain a lawyer."
 
Detective Carey says Patrick Pino is no longer speaking to detectives. His attorney, Charles Mead, told NewsChannel 5 that Mr. Pino has no comment about the family's plea for more information on the missing person's case. Detectives say there has been no activity on her cell phone or bank accounts. She was last seen leaving her home in Boca in a Gray Toyota Rav 4. 
 
"Not being able to talk to her, not being able to call her, she was somebody who was all over Facebook talking to people always texting us, calling us about stuff," said Otero. 
 
The family says Loraine was excited to go on a family trip to North Carolina before her disappearance. 
 
"She had gifts to give the family members and she was definitely looking forward to going on the trip," said Rosannie  Feliciano, Loraine's sister. 
 
Detective Carey says since there is no evidence of a crime there is no suspect or person of interest, but the disappearance is concerning. Her family wants anyone who knows anything to speak up even if they remain anonymous.
