MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - A special memorial was held for missing mother Brittney Wood, who disappeared a year ago on May 30, 2012.
Relatives and longtime friends of Brittney gathered outside her childhood home in Mobile to draw strength from each other and let others know that Brittney has not been forgotten.
The memorial vigil kicked off at 7:30 p.m. That's the time authorities believe Brittney left her home and met her uncle, Donald Holland, down the road.
Investigators believe Holland picked up Brittney and drove her across Mobile bay to a residence in the Styx River area.
Brittney's phone later went dead. Authorities said her cell phone battery was found in Holland's truck after he was discovered with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, two days later.
In the months that followed, a number of Brittney's relatives were arrested and charged in an alleged child sex ring that authorities believe Brittney had fallen victim to at one point.
Many said they are still keeping hope that Brittney is alive.
However at the end of the day, relatives said they want to make sure she is never forgotten.
