TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) — It has been nearly a year since Dee Ann Warner was last seen. The 52-year-old mother of five has been missing since April 25 last year. Yesterday, hundreds of people showed up at the Hardy Farm event center and held a vigil for Warner.
A family friend, Kathryn Adams, says she asks herself the same questions every day.
“We want to know what happened to him,” she said. “We want to know where she is and start this whole healing process.”
Throughout the night, loved ones gathered to share dinner, drinks and stories about Warner. Guests could also purchase wristbands, signage and shirts to help raise funds to be used for resources to find their friend.
After hearing from several members of Warner’s family and people assisting the family in the case, attorney and investigator working for Warner’s family, Billy Little Jr., told the group at the vigil that he had found new evidence and that he would release it on Mother’s Day. He also said he would bring justice to Dee.
the night would be crowned with candlelight and a warner’s prayer.
Adams says that even though it’s been a tough year, it’s important to stay positive.
“Community support to show Dee’s family that we are all behind them and will be there until we get justice for Dee,” she said.
