HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Friends of murder victim Ivanice "Ivy" Harris plan three marches in three cities this Saturday, the day that marks three months since she disappeared.

Harris was last seen outside a Waikiki bar in the early-morning hours of May 16. Her body was found days later near Yokohama Bay. Authorities said she had been strangled.

Organizers said the marches are intended to keep pressure on Navy investigators building a case against suspect Nathaniel Cosby, the marine master sergeant who spent the night with Harris before she disappeared.

"It just became personal because it the fact that I live here and I have children as well," said march organizer Shilo Keefer, who didn't know Harris personally but was one of the last people to see the Portland woman alive, when she and her friends stopped in Keefer's Waikiki shop. "I would not want this to happen to somebody else visiting."

Saturday's March in Honolulu begins at 11 a.m. at the corner of Punchbowl and South King Streets. Marches are also planned Saturday in Portland and Las Vegas, where Harris also lived.
