People gather for "Team Amber Rescue" inaugural event

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - This week marks two years since 14-year old Amber Dubois was kidnapped and killed by John Gardner. But her parents didn't find out what happened to her until more than a year later.

For the somber anniversary, hundreds gathered in Escondido yesterday to raise money for a new missing child rescue group created in Amber's memory.

Amber's mother, Carrie McGonigle formed "Team Amber Rescue" to make sure no other parents have to go what she went through.

Brenda Van Dam also attended the fundraiser.

Her seven-year old daughter, Danielle, was kidnapped and murdered back in 2002.
