OAKLAND (KCBS)— It was an emotional scene when a crowd gathered in East Oakland Thursday night to mark one year since the disappearance of Daphne Viola Webb, a two-year old girl who was reportedly last seen by her father.

The memorial, full of song, came as Oakland police confirmed they’ve now handed over their investigation to prosecutors. Daphne’s loved ones said they are still searching for closure and convened at 79th Avenue and International Boulevard, the spot where the little girl was last seen.

Family members say Daphne’s father, John Webb, committed suicide two months ago before talking with them about the child’s disappearance.

Webb was arrested shortly after Daphne disappeared on suspicion of child endangerment, but was released and never charged.

On July 10, 2013 the girl’s father told police a stranger took his daughter that morning while she sat in a parked car with her 87-year-old grandmother. John Webb said he had gone inside Gazzali’s supermarket on 7838 International Blvd.

Daphne’s grandfather Kevin Davis spoke to the crowd and KPIX 5 during the memorial.

“We have to protect all the other children that are here right now. Watch over every child, help the parents be mindful of their children,” Davis said.
