Candle Light Vigil

In June a candlelight vigil was held in Cordell Oklahoma in memory of Melissa Flores and Anthony Holland. Melissa has been missing since January, 2007. Her case is considered a homicide by OSBI. Anthony has been missing since June 2009. His case is considered a missing person case but odds are that he has been murdered.

Melissa was a beautiful young mother of three small children. It was so wonderful to meet her loving family. It is obvious how much they cared for Melissa and how much they miss her. They continue searching for her so they can gain closure. They are not giving up.

Anthony was 51 years old at the time of his disappearance and a father of two boys. He is missed so much by all of us. Contrary to many publications he was last seen in Cordell, Oklahoma. He returned home from Elk City and spent about 1 hour with his wife. That was the last he was seen. Like Melissa's family we will not give up. He is out there somewhere and we will find him. We are frustrated daily that his home where he was last seen has not been searched. We are frustrated that we are not allowed to search his farm land. We are frustrated that some of his family seem to not care if he is found or not. But those of us that do we will not give up.

I believe that there are individuals that know something about one or the other of these cases. I just pray they come forward and provide this information to the OSBI.
