MILWAUKEE - Nearly two weeks since 27-year-old Kelly Dwyer disappeared without a trace, her father describes her as health conscious. The email she uses is "organic guru".  She's happy and he's desperate to see his daughter's smile again.

At this point, Tony Dwyer's will to know what happened to his daughter is the only thing that gets him up in the morning.
 
We asked him what he would say to Kelly if he saw her right now.
 
"I would say 'Come home baby. I miss you. I know you're out there and we're gonna find you,'" said Tony Dwyer.
 
Kelly Dwyer was last seen walking into an apartment building on Prospect Avenue.
 
Tony Dwyer says Kelly's mother called to tell him she hadn't shown up for work October 11th at Lulu Lemon, which wasn't like her.  Tony Dwyer quickly returned home from an overseas business trip and family began their own frantic search.
 
"I've spent hours on the phone with her friends. I've spent hours in her apartment, her digital world, banking and all of those things," said Tony Dwyer.
 
Tony Dwyer doesn't know Kris Zocco, who may be the last person to see Kelly.  Milwaukee police arrested Zocco for drug possession, but he was released on bail.  Police have not said he's a suspect in Kelly's disappearance, but sources told TODAY's TMJ4 that police seized his computer. It was at his friend's house, just north of downtown.  Right now, Tony Dwyer just hopes this nightmare is over soon.
 
"You can't express the grieving without crawling up in a ball and crying," said Tony Dwyer.
