Missing persons' families cling to hope
By Crystal Bonvillian
According to law enforcement officials, there are at least 13 families in the tri-county area going through the same emotional turmoil, 13 missing persons cases that have left the families involved -- and police investigators -- puzzled. "It's very frustrating," said Detective Geno Howton, a Montgomery Police Department investigator. "You're working on a case and you keep digging and digging and, just when you think you might be making progress, boom, you hit a huge wall."
LaQuanta Riley: Riley, 19, left her family's Montgomery home the night of Dec. 7, 2003, getting into a green car, possibly a Ford Taurus or Chevrolet Caprice. Police have had several leads in Riley's case but none has led to her location.
