At an altar in her apartment, Marta Estrada has knelt the last several nights before a lighted candle and prayed for the return of her daughter, missing since riots swept the family's Pico-Union neighborhood near downtown last week. "I've lit the candle so that God will help me find her," said Estrada, 32, who has been searching desperately for the mentally disabled 14-year-old girl who wandered away from home and vanished during a looting spree in their community Thursday night.
