STRATFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A restaurant in Stratford hosted a fundraiser Saturday night to help raise money to bring missing 1-year-old Vanessa Morales home.
Joey C’s Boathouse hoped to increase the reward amount for the case.
Vanessa was reported missing more than a week ago. Police issued an Amber Alert for the 1-year-old on December 3, but so far there has been no sign of her.
Christine Holloway, Vanessa’s mother, was found dead in her home in Ansonia on December 2. Holloway’s death is being investigated as a homicide.
Police say they have several leads in the case and that Vanessa’s father is cooperating with authorities.
