It's been 11 years since Sharon Costello last saw her daughter, Victoria Ochoa. The 27-year-old was a mother of four, her children are now in the care of her mother, Costello.

 "They lost her so so young," Ochoa's sister, Lonnie Michael said. "They weren't able to hear her voice... that's the saddest part I think."

In August 2005, Victoria was making a routine stop at the BP Gas station on Providence Blvd. It was the last time she was seen alive.

"We knew something wasn't right when she didn't call on her son's birthday," Michael said. 

Six months after Victoria was reported missing, detectives found human remains inside an abandoned home on D Street. They were later identified as Ochoa's.

More than a decade later the lot sits empty and happens to be less than half a mile from the last location Ochoa was seen.

"For us to learn she was murdered, that was the furthest thing that would have ever been on my mind," said Michael. 

Detectives hope members of the public can shed new light on this homicide case.
