TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The mother of Maribel Gonzales spoke to Tucson News Now, a day after the Pima County Sheriff's Department went back to the area of Trico and Avra Valley Road. The same area where Maribel's body was found back in 2014.
This past June marked three years since Maribel's death. The teen disappeared on the way to a friend's house.
Valerie Calonge, Maribel's mother said, PCSD told her they were going out to search the area where her daughter's body was found.
Investigators tell us, they were in that area on Wednesday, Oct. 25 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., hoping to find evidence that would help lead to an arrest.
"I want whoever did this to my daughter to be found," said Calonge. "I want them to do whatever it takes to get justice for my daughter."
The sheriff's department said they will continue to investigate this case. Even if that means coming back out to the desert looking for evidence, they will do that until this case is closed.
"I love my daughter so much, and I still love her to this day. She had a lot of friends that loved her and a lot of people that loved her," said Calonge.
