Balloons Released on Anniversary of Stephanie Low's Disappearance Submitted: 10/10/2012
WAUSAU - Wednesday marked two years to the day since then-22-year-old Stephanie Low disappeared from her Wausau apartment.

Family and friends gathered for a balloon release and candelight vigil.

Nearly 300 balloons stuffed with missing person flyers were released over Oak Island Park.

Although turnout was lower than last year, Stephanie's father is still grateful for the support.


"You expect family to be here, but you don't expect anyone else to be here," George Low said. "So when you get strangers walking into the crowd, that feels pretty good. It gives you a feeling that there's somebody out there that cares besides you."

The message was one of hope, but Low simply hopes for closure.

"I'm a realist," he said. "If my daughter was going to come home, my daughter would've come home. It's been two years. I basically felt something was wrong from the very first day."

"Missing Not Forgotten" also gets Stephanie's picture out to the public on water bottles.

You can buy those at stores in Antigo, Birnamwood, and Wausau.
