PROVO, Utah – Elizabeth Laguna Salgado went missing exactly one year ago to the day Saturday, and loved ones marked the anniversary with a march to keep the search and their hope alive.

Supporters marched from Salgado’s apartment to the Nomen Global Language School in Provo, which is the path Salgado was taking home when she disappeared last year.

Rosemberg Salgado, Elizabeth’s uncle, said the last 12 months have been an ordeal.

"It's been a terrible year,” he said. “My father died because of the stress that we couldn't find my niece. I can't even describe the way that we're feeling as a family."

The woman's mother spoke to FOX 13 News earlier this week.

Salgado is originally from Mexico and had only been in Utah for a short time before she vanished. The 27-year-old woman stands 5-feet, 5-inches tall and weighs 120 pounds. She has long black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone who sees Salgado or who has information about her whereabouts should call the Provo Police Department at 801-852-6210.
