The family of murdered Bangor woman Lisa Dorrian have been marking her 26th birthday by releasing 26 white balloons over the seafront.
Each balloon released had a special message attached
Lisa disappeared after attending a party in a caravan at Ballyhalbert on the Ards Peninsula in February.
Loyalist paramilitaries were blamed for her killing. The family say they are no closer to finding out what happened to her. Her body has not been found.
Her sister Joanne said it was a particularly emotional time for them.
"We know Lisa would have been celebrating with us today," she said.
"I just want to say to these people, they can see what we're going through so please just tell us where she is and put us out of our misery.
Lisa's sister Joanne Dorrian pleaded for information
"It has been 15 weeks today on her birthday, and it's 15 weeks too long - we just need her back."
Lisa's parents, John and Patricia, and her sisters, Joanne and Michelle, took part in the tribute.
Three men were questioned about the killing but were later released.
The police are looking at the possible involvement of members of the Loyalist Volunteer Force.
The family is offering a £10,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of Lisa's body.
