Nathan Carman organized a service for his mother, Linda Carman, of Middletown, Connecticut. It was attended by about a dozen people at a Hartford church Wednesday morning.

Her three sisters, who previously questioned the timing of the memorial with her disappearance still under investigation, did not attend.

Carman, who lives in Vernon, Vermont, left a Rhode Island marina with his mother on a fishing trip Sept. 17. He was found in a life raft eight days later about 100 nautical miles south of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts.

Carman told authorities he doesn't know what happened to his mother.
