BRIDGETON — The family of a missing 5-year-old girl will hold a candlelight vigil Saturday, according to family spokeswoman Jackie Rodriguez.
Saturday will mark two months since Dulce Maria Alavez was last seen at City Park. Her mother was in the car with an 8-year-old relative when she saw her 3-year-old son crying and pointing to where he last saw Dulce, police said.
The girl may have been taken by a man who led her away from the playground and into an older model red van, police said.
