    It’s been almost 11 years since Diana Bryan lost her daughter... Kissimmee police said Balderas was slain and the case is still open but it’s at a standstill...

    Bryan was estranged from her daughter when she died. She said they had a falling out that she regrets. "Could have, would have, should have. I should have done this and that," Bryan said...

    Bryan said she will hold a vigil Friday night, as she does every year, next to the hotel where her daughter's body was found.
