Friends and family of Lisa Stone are renewing their efforts to find the missing woman.
Friends and family of missing woman Lisa Stone held a vigil in her honor Sunday afternoon at Mesquite's City Lake Park.
The 54-year-old woman vanished from her east Dallas home on June 5, 2010. On that day, police said Stone took a friend out to lunch and the salon before returning home never to be seen again.
"This is just crucial that we keep the word out there," said Tina Stringer, a friend of Stone's since 7th grade. "We can't let this die.”
Friends sang a song of remembrance for Stone.
"We still have hope that we can find her, that we can laid her to rest properly. We still have hope that there will be justice for her someday. No one should just go missing," Stringer said.
Ever since Stone went missing, vigils have been held frequently. This year, her friends gathered in front of this bench at City Lake Park -- which is dedicated to her.
"It's a healing process when you can come together as a group of friends and support each other," Tammie Selvidge, who attended the vigil said.
A year after her disappearance Stone was declared dead by the court.
"Someone should pay for this there is somebody out there who did something to Lisa and they have their freedom still. That's just not right," Stringer said.
