Posted by Debra Worley - email

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The CUE Center for Missing Persons is holding a candlelight vigil this weekend to remember two local murder victims.

The remains of Allison Jackson Foy and of Angela Nobles Rothen were found near each other in a wooded area off Carolina Beach Road in 2008.

Monica Caison with the CUE Center was deeply involved with this case and other missing women cases in the area.

In a previous interview with WECT, Caison said there are more than a dozen women missing in the Wilmington area.

She says the hardest part for the families of missing people is the waiting and wondering.

The public is invited to attend the vigil that will take place Saturday, March 21 at Riverfront Park in downtown Wilmington beginning at 7:30 PM.
