Memorial held for woman missing from Jersey Shore

Relatives and friends gathered last night to honor 72-year-old Julia Madison, who vanished from the beach in Seaside Park during the summer of 2009.

On the anniversary of her disappearance, dozens of her family members and friends gathered to say goodbye. They say the vigil is providing closure after a year of mystery.

Family members say that there has been no physical evidence of Madison's disappearance.

The Ocean County prosecutor's office is still treating Madison's disappearance as a missing person's case.
