Friends, family and neighbors of a missing Spanaway woman gathered Sunday night in honor of her birthday and to raise awareness of her disappearance.
Rio Boyd turned 22 years old on March 23, but she's been missing since October 17. She was believed to be going to her friend's home but never made it there. Her brand-new cell phone was found off Field Rd. a block away from the mobile home park she lived in.
Rio's stepsister, JF put on the birthday party-turned-vigil to remind the community that Rio is still missing
The Pierce County Sheriff's Department says rumors circulated in January that Rio had been found but those were not true and there are no new updates.
Rio's family has since hired a private investigator but they believe someone knows something about her disappearance and hope anyone with information will come forward.
