Vigil marks 10-year anniversary of Harvest woman's disappearance

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

On Thursday night, family, friends and community members joined together in honor of a Harvest woman who's been missing for a decade.

Jennifer Powers vanished in July 2008, leaving behind her purse, medication and family. No one has seen her since.

"As it turned the 12th, I just sat there and I thought that 'Wow, 10 years ago this was like the worst day of my life.' I found out I didn't have - my mom was gone. So it's hard. It's hard,” said her daughter Katelyn Vann.

"You'd think that the hope would be gone, but seeing all of this, it's still there. It's still high,” she said.

Vann was 10 years old at the time. She’s spent much of the past decade experiencing new things and living life the way every other teenager has, but with the void of her missing mother.
