Seven years after a Brooklyn teen was found dead, her family is asking for help solving her case.

Neighbors and family of Chanel Petro-Nixon gathered near her former Bedford-Stuyvesant home in Brooklyn.

They want the community to know they still want answers about her death, and they are urging anyone who might know something about her disappearance to come forward.

"Tomorrow makes seven years that I buried Chanel," said Lucia Petro-Nixon, Chanel's mother. "There is somebody out there who knows what happened to her, who knows the murderer, and I'm just asking that they will come and say something."

Chanel Petro-Nixon was just 16 years old when she went missing in June of 2006 while walking to a local restaurant to apply for a job.

Her body was found in Crown Heights four days later.

Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes joined the rally for information on Chanel's disappearance.

He said his office hasn't forgotten the case and will follow up on any leads they get.
