GREENVILLE — A memorial ceremony has been scheduled next month on the one year anniversary of the disappearance of a local teenager, who later was found murdered.

Alicia Moore was last seen getting off of a school bus at the intersection of Walnut and Bourland Streets in Greenville on Nov. 2, 2012. Her body was found on Nov. 6, 2012 along FM 47 in Van Zandt County.

The memorial ceremony, which will include a prayer and a balloon release, is set at the intersection in Greenville for 3:20 p.m. November 2.

Michael Moore, the uncle of Alicia Moore, was arrested May 6 and has been charged with capital murder. He remains in custody at the Van Zandt County jail. He has pleaded not guilty.

Investigators took DNA samples from Moore’s family members, which along with additional evidence reportedly implicated Michael Moore in the murder.
