Bernice Abeyta
Friends and family of Bernice Abeyta packed the gym at the old Ivywild School to celebrate her life. In 1986, Bernice was thrust into the spotlight when her son, Christopher Abeyta was taken from his home while in his crib. Bernice and her family were unrelenting in their search for Christopher through the years. Gil Abeyta, husband of Bernice and father of Christopher, was overcome with emotion during the playing of a slideshow as he sits with family, including his daughter Denise Alves (left) on Sunday, February 19, 2017.
