The family gathered to remember both Ashley and her grandmother, Sue Kibble.

"Our mom just recently passed away last January and we know she would wanna be close to Ashley. So this is in memory of both of them. I feel like my mom is looking out for Ashley." Tammy Mack, daughter of Sue Kibble said.

The family asks that anyone with information regarding Ashley Martinez's disappearance to contact the St. Joseph Police Department at (816) 271-4777.
