MCG Problem: Consider a positive integer R and an undirected graph G = (V, E), in which each vertex is assigned a weight (or value). The maximum-weight connected graph (MCG) problem is to find a subgraph with R vertices that is connected and maximizes the sum of the weights (or values) of the R vertices.
CMCG Problem: The CMCG problem is the MCG problem with a constraint of having one predetermined (fixed) vertex included in the solution.
In 1 it has been stated (First paragraph, Section 1) that MCG is an NP-complete problem, which is proved in  (However I could not find the technical report  anywhere on the internet).
In 2 it has been "claimed" that CMCG is NP-complete (second to last paragraph, Section 3). But did not provide any proof.
I want to know (and see a proof, if possible) that if CMCG is NP-complete.
In 1 it has been shown that Steiner tree problem, which is NP-complete is a special case of the CMCG problem. Does it imply that CMCG is NP-complete?
