Regina Woodward went missing July, 2013 at the age of 30. Saturday (Feb22) the family hosted a vigil for Woodward at the Altus City Park.
The family said their faith has been keeping them going.
“For number one we believe in the power of prayer and we want people to know that Regina hasn’t been found regardless of what kind of rumors there is, and we’re praying that we do find her and get some kind of answer,” said Steve Woodward, father of Regina Woodward.
Sheriff Anthony Boen said the Woodward case is still an ongoing investigation and they do suspect foul play.
Boen said “right now we do have a couple people of interest that we think that may know something about her where about and that we’re wanting to speak to, and we also have information that she may have ties to Johnson count and they are also assisting in the investigation.”
The Woodward family said they felt the need to have this vigil to remind the community that their little girl is still missing. Sunday (Feb 23) they will search the area for leads starting at the city capitol. They are asking volunteers to gather at the capitol steps at 10:00am. The search will end at noon.
