Candlelight Vigil Held for Missing Woman Christina Morris

Tuesday marks four months since a woman disappeared from a Plano shopping center

For four months family and friends of Christina Morris have prayed the 23-year-old will be found after she disappeared from a Plano shopping center in August.

A candlelight vigil for Morris was held Tuesday night near the home where the man accused of kidnapping Morris lives. That man is Enrique Arochi, and he was the last person seen with her in surveillance video taken from the shopping center.

Investigators said Morris' DNA was also found in the trunk of Arochi’s Chevrolet Camaro.

“I’m praying that the Arochi family hears God and hears us begging,” said Morris’ mother Jonni McElroy.

Arochi was arrested in December for kidnapping Morris, but she still is nowhere to be found.

“I’m mad, I’m pissed,” said Teighlor Stegman, a lifelong friend of Morris. “How is someone going to do that to her, something so awful?"

But now, there's another blow to the family. The City of Allen removed all the ‘Missing Christina Morris’ signs from public property because it violates a city ordinance and they received complaints from neighbors.

"I would like them [the neighbors] to look at me one-on-one, eye-to-eye and tell me the reason why we cannot post my daughter's beautiful face in this neighborhood,” said McElroy.

But what family and friends want most is for Morris to come home.

Morris' mom said the ordeal has taken a toll on her emotionally, physically, financially and it’s strained the relationship with her family. But she continues to pray that answers to where her daughter is located comes to light.
