West Stewartstown, New Hampshire -- August 26, 2011

Thursday marked one month since Celina Cass disappeared, and friends turned out to remember her.

The 11-year-old girl's body was pulled from the Connecticut River a quarter of a mile from her home on Aug. 1.

A group of friends, teachers, neighbors, and classmates gathered at the river dam where her body was found to remember Celina with a balloon launch and candle-lighting.

"Tonight it's a month since we've last seen Celina, and we just want to let Celina know that we will never forget her, we remember her, and we're giving her a voice that we also want some answers, even for her," said Stewartstown resident Deb Whelan, who organized the event.

Parents hope the ceremony will offer Cass' friends some closure before the school year starts.

Authorities have called her death suspicious and are offering a reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.
