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.
