CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - August 21st will now be known as "Elizabeth Ann Gill Day" in Cape Girardeau.

With the help of non profit group Missouri Missing, city leaders named August 21st, Gill's birthday, after her.

Gill went missing from her Cape Girardeau home in 1965. She was just two and a half years old.

Today, family and friends gathered at St. Vincents Church in Cape Girardeau to celebrate what would have been Elizabeth's 48th birthday. Everyone released colorful balloons.

Detective Jimmy Smith with the Cape Girardeau Police Department says his office is following up on several new leads in her disappearance.
