The mother of a toddler who disappeared from a bowling alley more than a decade ago is holding a candlelight vigil Sunday in her honor.
For the last 12 years, Theresa Lewis has returned to the spot where she last saw her daughter to say a prayer that one day Teekah Lewis comes home.
“I don’t like to go back to the site but I do it for my daughter,” she said. “Whatever I can do, I do. We want the public to come out, we want the community’s support.”
Teekah was 2 ½ when she was taken Jan. 23, 1999, from the now-defunct New Frontier Lanes bowling alley.
The vigil will be held at 6:30 p.m. Sunday at 4702 Center St., in the Jack-in-the-Box parking lot where the bowling alley once stood.
A reward for information leading to Teekah’s return still stands. Anyone with information is asked to call the Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers at 253-591-5959.
