PROVO, Utah – Family and supporters, including kidnapping survivor Elizabeth Smart, are marking the disappearance of a Provo woman who was last seen a year ago.
Smart said at a press conference Monday that she believes a miracle can happen to get the woman home safe and urged Elizabeth Elena Laguna Salgado to focus on surviving.
Dozens had also gathered on Saturday to march the route that the then-26-year-old woman would have taken on April 16, 2015 from her apartment to the Nomen Global Language School.
