MONROE, Mich. (AP) - A rally and march were held 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/252RXGF) about 30 people gathered Saturday in Monroe to raise awareness about the unsolved case of Nevaeh Buchanan. They processed from a park, through downtown and to the Monroe County sheriff’s office.

The event was coordinated by Justice for Nevaeh, an organization formed among volunteers who helped search for the girl. Her grandmother, Carla Nash, says “we should have answers by now.”

Nevaeh disappeared May 24, 2009. Her body was found 10 days later along the nearby River Raisin. An autopsy found she suffocated after inhaling dirt.

Sheriff’s Major Jeff Kemp says a suspect remains in prison on unrelated charges.
