Las Vegas (FOX5)-On Sunday night, a small group gathered to remember with a candlelight vigil near where 26-year-old Javaha Heji was last seen.
Jawaher Hejji was reported missing by her mother in December 2020. Surveillance footage near Shaded Canyon Drive captured the last moment she was seen alive. Her car was found in the area a few days later.
Just last month, a mountaineer discovered she remained in Black Mountain. Last week they were clearly identified as belonging to Hejji.
Nichole Grossman organized a Sunday rally for Hejji. Grossman didn’t know Heji personally, but joined the search team 10 months ago.
“We just want to show that our families are backed by the community and strangers,” Grossman said.
Henderson police are currently leading a death investigation.
“Under any circumstances, she lost her daughter, and her sister lost her sister, and their family lost a member of the family. This situation, without knowing what had happened. The mother shouldn’t have to rest her child underneath. ”
Hejji family started GoFundMe for Jawaher’s funeral..
