The Community United Effort Center for Missing Persons met in Bidwell Park on Tuesday in an effort to re-spark interest in the 7-year-old missing persons case of Heidi Ring.
The organization tours the country to bring attention to cold missing persons cases. Right now they have 67 cases that they are working on.
"I'm so grateful and I don't how to express it. I can't imagine people with that much love to throw around on total strangers and they are all volunteers," says Heidi Ring's mother, Gretchen Ring.
Ring went missing on Jun. 8, 2005 and was last seen at around 3 p.m. at a motel off of Manzanita Court in Chico.
Ring had a Shasta County warrant out for her arrest from a misdemeanor vandalism charge when she disappeared and she had relocated to Chico.
Human remains found on a boat ramp in Glenn County led to suspicion that the body could belong to Ring. Chico police said that they have not ruled out that the remains do belong to Heidi Ring but they could not confirm anything either.
A special “Remember Heidi” presentation was given by her Ring’s mother, sister and brother.
