An estimated 300 people attended a candlelight vigil held last night for missing Maui woman, Moreira “Mo” Monsalve.

The 46-year-old mother of three has been missing for nearly two weeks.

Her parents flew in from Maryland and joined other family and friends in holding candles during the event on the front lawn of Kaʻahumanu Church in Wailuku.

Those in attendance were encouraged to place the LED candlelight somewhere at home and keep it lit until Monsalve is found.

“The candlelight symbolizes the light of hope that our community has while the search continues,” said event organizer Mahina Martin.

Pink ribbons were also distributed with the words, “We won’t rest until you are found.”

The next big community search effort is planned for this Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014.

    Hoping for the best possible outcome for this women and her family. Searchers have to assume the worst and formulate a search plan that focuses on the central maui area she was last seen. The worst is that the suspect killed her at or near his residence in Wailuku and disposed of her body in a remote area. So searching central maui and the north-central coastal areas makes the most sense since the suspect would have had the easiest and quickest access to these areas. It appears these areas will be the focus this weekend. If the family intends to search indefinitely anyway, they should do so in a grid-like manner so they can be sure no potential search areas are overlooked.

      Why?

      • ronald1216

        cause theres a cliff and heavey brush there and is actualy close by to the apartments easy drop off and quick getaway. or the river and old camp site. i dont think his doing this alone most likely his redirecting people polipoli so someone can do the work in covering up as misdirection while being followed someones getting rid of evidence
