Garza family marks somber milestone
The family of a missing Brooklyn woman - who went missing after last being seen with a convicted Orange County sex offender - held a vigil Sunday to mark a somber milestone.
Laura Garza's family says their pain has turned into frustration as the search for the woman continues five months after her disappearance.
The family gathered at St. Patrick's Cathedral in Manhattan and handed out fliers with Garza's picture on it.
The Brooklyn woman was last seen leaving Marquee nightclub in Manhattan on Dec. 3. Authorities say Garza was not alone - they believe she left with Michael Mele, a known sex offender from Orange County.
Mele remains in jail for an unrelated parole violation.
