Family, Gilbert Police try to solve 10-year-old cold case

10 years ago, a valley woman disappeared and now the Gilbert Police Department is re-releasing information on the case, hoping it can trigger some new leads.

GPD and the woman's family are hoping for a break in this case after a decade has passed with no sign of Stacy Ann Aragon. Her family says they want people to come forward with information, even if they want to remain anonymous.

Aragon was last seen near Gilbert and Elliot Road in the middle of the afternoon.

"The unknown is the worst, I think. It's not knowing. There's no closure.. nothing for her family," said Aragon's sister-in-law, Nikki Askren.

Aragon was 28-years-old at the time, the mother of 3-year-old and 8-year-old boys.  Her family says after a decade has passed, they just want answers as to what happened to her.

"It's hard. You think of so many different things and a lot of bad, horrible things and you can't help it," said Aragon's sister, Lisa Askren.

"Since her disappearance, her mom has passed away, her step-dad has passed away.. it's just been horrible.. on the entire family," added Nikki.

Lisa says not knowing what happened is something they think about all the time.

"24 hours a day. Because you don't think this kind of stuff happens to normal people."

Her family is holding a candlelight vigil on July 17th to keep Aragon's memory alive and hopefully jog someone's memory to help solve this cold case.

"Get the word out and also to let people know we're never going to stop -- we're never going to stop looking, no matter how long it takes," said Nikki.

Aragon's family is emphasizing the point they are looking for closure and not justice at this point and that's why they're asking anyone who might have information to call Silent Witness at (480) WITNESS.
