SALT LAKE CITY — Family and friends are planning a memorial service for a Utah woman and her toddler son who have been missing since September 2015 and are believed to have been murdered.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the family of 23-year-old Emily Quijano wrote an obituary Sunday announcing plans for a memorial service for Quijano and her 3-year-old son Gabriel Almiron on May 26 in Payson, a city south of Provo.

The two have not been seen in more than two years.

Quijano’s boyfriend, 29-year-old Christopher Richard Poulson, was arrested in October and charged with murder in their deaths. Authorities accuse Poulson of hiding their bodies.

Court records show Poulson has not yet entered a plea. An attorney for Poulson didn’t immediately return a phone message.

Authorities have not disclosed a possible motive.
