The Detroit community held a rally in honor of a young woman who was found dead after being reported missing earlier this week.

Kajavia Globe, 24, was found in the backyard of a home in the area of McNichols and the Southfield Service Drive on Dec. 15. She was last seen in that area on Dec. 11.

The rally is took place at 4 p.m. on Saturday at the corner of 7 Mile and Evergreen on Detroit's west side. It featured Detroit City Councilwoman Mary Sheffield, Dana Harris, Keka Harris and KiKi Kerr.

It was in honor of Kajavia and the hundreds of other young women who have been abducted and killed every year in America.

"The senseless robbery, abduction and cold-blooded murder of this young woman extinguished another bright light in our city, and I am compelled to bring the community together to collectively call for the perpetrator(s) to turn themselves in. Together, we must remain vigilant in our efforts to end violence and protect innocent women and children in our community," Sheffield said in a release.

Detroit police have released photos of a suspect who was seen using Kajavia's ATM card and driving her car.
