Vigil set tonight for missing Westland teen: Sister of another missing girl aids family of 16-year-old who disappeared 3 months ago
A candlelight vigil to draw attention to a missing Westland teenager drew about 80 people Saturday night.
Carlee Morse, 16, of Westland disappeared just after midnight Aug.20.
“We’re hoping the vigil will bring some exposure to the case, because with every day that passes, we’re losing hope that she is alive,” said Beth Pluta, a longtime family friend who helped organize the event outside the home of another family friend in Garden City.
Westland police classified Carlee as a missing person in an active investigation. “We’ve received quite a few tips on her whereabouts, but at this stage of the game, nothing has panned out,” said police Sgt. Steve Bird.
