Missing teacher's family visits from Belgium

BRUSLY - It's been 640 days since anyone has heard from Sylvianne Finck Lozada, her daughter Angelina, or her husband Oscar who's been named a "person of interest" in her disappearance.

Lozada's godson, Anton Finck, met with friends and colleagues at Brusly High School Thursday to get a first-hand look at a memorial garden planted in her name and to walk the halls where she taught for more than ten years.

Lozada was reported missing July 18, 2011, 12 days after investigators said her husband Oscar bought multiple five-gallon buckets and bags of concrete mix. He and their daughter, Angelina, boarded a plane in Dallas bound for Venezuela three days later.

This time last year, friends, students and colleagues planted a memorial garden in her honor on Brusly High's campus.

"We can see that even if she was far away from her family, this school was her family too," Anton Finck, her godson said.

But while this garden symbolizes the schools commitment to remembering Lozada and her legacy, it's the commitment of the Sheriff's Office Finck questions.

"I think the most difficult thing is to have no answers about our questions," Finck explained. "We knew things then and we still had hope, but after two years, it's no more I think."

Friday morning, Finck will present one student with a foreign language scholarship in Lozada's name.
