BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- Loved ones gathered around at the One Stop gas station Thursday night to honor the memory of Bambi Madden who has been missing for 12 years.
Bambi Madden was expected to come home January 11, 2006, but that night she had vanished without any clue as to why or how.
"She left home and she was never seen home again," said her sister, Jackie Fiske.
Fiske describes her sister as someone who was always sweet and loved her family more than anything in the world.
Bambi had three children. Her son, Scott Fiske, was only 18-years-old when she disappeared.
"Something so tragic as this, it definitely took a toll on my life and for a minute knocked me astray," said Scott.
For the past 12 years, Madden's family has held the candlelight vigil to remain hopeful.
"Just to keep her memory alive and keep her name out in hopes of finding answers," said Jackie. "Hopefully someone will come forward and let us know if they know something or she'll come home to us."
Binghamton Police have considered Bambi Madden a cold case, meaning the investigation will remain open until further evidence is found.
For now, Madden's family members said they won't stop until they find out what happened and hope that they will have the woman they love back home one day.
