The family of Desmond Peter is holding an open candlelight vigil in Duncan on March 12 to recognize the 10th anniversary of his disappearance.
Peter was 14 years-old when he was reported missing in March, 2007.
Prior to his disappearance, Peter had been seen at the old Malaspina College in Duncan on Cowichan Way.
There had been reported possible sightings of him in and around the central Vancouver Island area subsequent to that.
However, none of them have been confirmed.
Friends and family have worked tirelessly to get answers as to his whereabouts ever since his disappearance.
Peter’s family is inviting the community to come together as a show of support not only in their search for their son, but for all the families currently searching for answers about their missing loved ones.
The candlelight vigil begins at 2 p.m. at Si’em Lelum Gymnasium, located at 5574 River Rd., followed by a potluck dinner, which begins at 3 p.m. at Shaker Church, 3100 Church Rd.
