MONROE, Mich. (AP) - A rally and march are planned in memory of a 5-year-old southeastern Michigan girl who disappeared in 2009 and was found buried near a river.

The Monroe News reports (https://bit.ly/1NrrU42 ) the rally for Nevaeh Buchanan is Saturday afternoon at St. Mary’s Park in Monroe followed by a procession to the Monroe County Law Enforcement Center.

The event is coordinated by members of Justice for Nevaeh, an organization that formed among some volunteers who helped search for the girl. The hope is that authorities will get enough information so that an arrest can be made in the case.

Nevaeh disappeared May 24, 2009, from Monroe, located between Detroit and Toledo, Ohio. Her body was found 10 days later along the nearby River Raisin. An autopsy found she suffocated after inhaling dirt.
