OAK BEACH - Friends and family of a New Jersey prostitute who disappeared in Oak Beach - triggering one of the largest police investigations in Suffolk history - gathered today in her honor once year after she went missing.

"I'm here to remember my daughter Shannan - and to get the word out to find her and bring her home," says Mari Gilbert, about her daughter Shannan Gilbert.

At least nine sets of human remains have been found along Ocean Parkway since December after police began to search for Gilbert.
