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