A candlelight vigil for a missing Maui woman will be held tomorrow on the lawn fronting the historic Ka’ahumanu Church on High Street in Wailuku.

Organizers say the vigil is being held to show solidarity as a community in efforts to find Moreira “Mo” Monsalve [2] who has been missing since Sunday, Jan. 12 [3].

The vigil is a public event scheduled for 6:30 tomorrow night.

Small searches continue throughout the island [4] during the week, with the next big search planned for this Saturday, Jan. 25.

Anyone with information that could help with the investigation is asked to call Maui Police at 244-6400.  Family and friend of Monsalve have also set up a Facebook page [5] that is updated daily with progress and search information.
