May 3, 2011 marked the 9th anniversary of the disappearance of Alexis Patterson. The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office command staff gathered outside Hi-Mount Boulevard Community School for a wreath-laying ceremony by Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. with Pastor John McVicker of Christ The King Baptist Church offering a prayer in thoughtful remembrance of Alexis. “Nine years have passed, and our community still needs closure. We must continue to actively search for new information to satisfy the questions surrounding the events of May 3, 2002,” said Sheriff Clarke. “My continued prayers go out to her family.” The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office is still offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to her return. Anyone with any information regarding Alexis can call the Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at (414) 278-4921.
