Vigil will mark woman’s disappearance

A candlelight vigil Tuesday will mark the one-year anniversary of the disappearance of Heather Higgins, who was last seen in Spokane on Sept. 20, 2010.

Higgins, who turned 40 in April, was last seen near an apartment complex at West 10th Avenue and South Cherry Street, where she had lived for 10 years. Her apartment was undisturbed, and her cellphone and bank account haven’t been accessed since that day, said her mother, Jackie Forney.

Forney said Thursday that she's heard no news about her daughter's case, and police have not returned her phone calls.

Fornay and others will gather Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Trinity Baptist Church, 6528 N. Monroe St., to honor Higgins. A Facebook page in Higgins' honor has gained followers from around the world.

“A lady in Sweden said she'll be burning a candle for her and praying,” Forney said. “It would be nice for the police department to know that people do care about her, and she's not forgotten by any means.”
