KUSA - September 7 marks two years since the body of Kenia Monge was found.
The young woman was abducted from LoDo and later found dead in Keenesburg. A memorial walk for Kenia is happening Saturday.
Tony and Maria Lee recently brought flowers to the cemetery where she is.
"It's so unnatural to have to come and see your child," Tony Lee said.
"I miss my little girl, hear her laughing, talking to me," Maria said.
Tony and Maria say days of of celebrations past are now reminders of pain.
In 2011, Kenia disappeared after she left a Denver club.
Travis Forbes would eventually plead to first degree for her death.
She had been missing for 5 months before her body was found.
"It's Kenia's story and helping families of the missing. It's incredible how many go missing each day," Tony said.
That five months of searching gave her parents a world of experience.
Their goal now is to keep Kenia's spirit alive by helping others. They now help other families search for their missing children.
They also teach awareness. They want other young women to be more aware when going out. Her family calls it therapy.
The Memorial Walk for Kenia Monge Saturday, September 7 at 11 a.m. Her parents Tony and Maria Lee will be there.
It starts at 35th and Gilpin - and goes to Skyline park. That's 2.5 miles.
There is no registration and no cost. Anyone in the community is invited to come.
