Dozens of people pleaded for answers on Friday in the case of missing Fort Hood soldier Pfc. Vanessa Guillen.

Twenty-year-old Pfc. Vanessa Guillen, assigned to 3rd Cavalry Regiment, was last seen on April 22 in the parking lot of her Regimental Engineer Squadron Headquarters on Fort Hood.

For nearly two months, few new details have been released regarding her disappearance.

In a peaceful demonstration outside the gates of Fort Hood, dozens of people joined the Guillen family pleading for answers.

"Everybody cares. Everybody wants to know where Vanessa is," said Mayra Guillen, Vanessa's sister.

Vanessa's mother has shared with authorities that her daughter felt unsafe on Fort Hood and was possibly a victim of sexual assault or harassment.

Military officials have announced plans to launch an investigation into the allegations after saying just days ago that there was no credible evidence to back them up.

Military officials say the search continues both on and off Fort Hood by multiple military and civilian law enforcement agencies. The family will meet with officials on Tuesday.
