SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Friends of Susan Powell gathered at the Salt Lake City Cemetery to remember the West Valley City woman and her two sons on the 4th anniversary of her disappearance.
Friends who bundled up for Friday night's vigil say they still seek answers about the mother, who was last seen alive at her home on Dec. 6, 2009. Her body has not been found.
Utah police focused their investigation into her disappearance on her husband, Josh Powell, until he killed himself and the couple's two sons in February 2012.
The Deseret News reports Friday's vigil at the Christmas Box Angel statue in the cemetery is held every year on Dec. 6, the date of the child's death in the book "The Christmas Box." It's one of over 100 similar statues in 39 states, and is part of a nationwide movement to remember abused children.
Susan Powell's parents, Judy and Chuck Cox, attended a similar vigil near the Christmas Box Angel memorial at the Woodbine Cemetery in Puyallup, Wash., where her sons, Charlie and Braden, were buried.
