500 kids attend memorial Christmas party for Nevaeh Buchanan

MONROE, MI (WTOL) - A memorial Christmas party  for Nevaeh Buchanan was attended by 500 children Sunday night.

The group Justice for Nevaeh organized the event for the little girl who was murdered more than two years ago.

The children sang Christmas carols, had lunch and played games to honor her memory.

There was also an identification registry set up for children, so authorities have their identification information should they ever come up missing.

Joe Starkey with Justice for Nevaeh says they are still actively looking for the child's killer.

"It's a very active investigation, active on multiple levels of law enforcement,' said Starkey. It remains a priority, and we're confident the case is going to be solved."

Nevaeh was kidnapped from her apartment complex and found dead along the banks of the River Raisin. A $50,000 reward is being offered for the arrest and conviction of her killer.
