Laura Garza's family, friends hold vigil in Manhattan
A vigil was held Saturday night outside the Marquee nightclub in Manhattan, where Laura Garza was last seen before disappearing one month ago.
Garza?s relatives who attended the event say they are not giving up hope to find the 23-year-old woman, although search crews that combed the woods in Orange County and braved the icy waters of Echo Lake failed to find anything related to her whereabouts.
Garza was last seen Dec. 3 leaving the Marquee nightclub in the company of Michael Mele, a convicted sex offender from Orange County. Police say they searched Mele?s apartment and discovered that it had been cleaned with bleach and was missing a piece of carpet.
"We want to ask all the community if they know where she is, or if they [know] something about it, please, please, please go forward, give information,? pleads Garza?s brother, Nicolas Garza.
Mele remains behind bars on a probation violation. He is not facing any charges in Garza's disappearance.
