Friends and family of Nina Coe, a Middletown woman who has been missing since last year, gathered at a vigil on the town green Saturday night.
Coe was reported missing July 16, 2015 and her family has been looking for her ever since. They still hope for answers.
“We really need the public’s help. Someone knows something out there. And just think if that was your family member. We need closure,” said Coe’s brother Michael Plourde.
Police said in March they suspected foul play because Coe had been in daily contact with family members until her disappearance and it was not like her to lose touch.
“I want my sister back. If she’s alive, I want her back. But I’m sure she’s not,” said Coe’s sister Dale Ocelik.
On March 11, Gov. Dannel Malloy signed off on a reward up to $20,000 for anyone who provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is found guilty of a crime in connection with Coe’s disappearance. But months later there is still no information on what happened to her.
“My family feels like her case is at the bottom of the pile now. But Nina is going to get justice no matter what,” Plourde said.
Nina Coe is 5-foot-2, weighs 130 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes. Police said she wears glasses and has a tattoo on one leg and a scar on the right side of her neck.
Anyone who thinks they have information on her case is asked to contact Middletown police at (860) 638-4140.
