MORENO VALLEY - A candlelight vigil will be held tonight for a 16-year-old Moreno Valley girl who went missing a month ago and is believed to have been murdered.

Aranda Briones was last seen on Jan. 13 in Moreno Valley Community Park at the intersection of Cottonwood Avenue and Frederick Street, where she had been visiting friends.

Her family and friends have been searching for her since, distributing flyers throughout the city bearing her photograph and other information.

On Monday night, brothers Gary Anthony Shover, 21, and Owen Skyler Shover, 18, of Hesperia, were arrested in connection with Briones' disappearance and have been charged with murder.

The vigil will be held at 5 p.m. at the same park where she was last seen, at 13380 Frederick Ave.

An event page set up for the vigil on Facebook asked attendees to bring candles and wear blue, which was Briones' favorite color.
