WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Family and friends gather tonight, to pray for a local teenager, reported missing for more than a week.

Moe Sed  was last seen Thursday, October 22nd, riding his bike on 4th Street in Waterloo.
 KWWL's Jessica Hartman attends this weekend's prayer service, to find those in attendance aren't giving up hope.

Prayers, songs, and candles were signs of the many people hoping for the safe return of Moe Sed.
 "We grieve for missing him. we worry for where he is. We cry out lord send him home," said Moe Sed's Father, Phe Tu Lun. 

 More than a week since he went missing and several search parties later, there are no answers for Moe Sed's family.
 "I was worry about him because he is out there alone, with out food or friends," said Phe Tu Lun.

 The service here at the First Baptist Church, the family tells KWWL, was a reminder that although Moe Sed is not with them, God is with him.
 "As we pray, we are hoping Moe Sed will come back home," said Rachel Price, Moe Sed's classmate at Waterloo West High School.

 And there prayers are not alone.
 Dozens of friends and strangers came to pray with the family.
  "It's really painful being on the sidelines of it. How would it feel to be in the middle of it; being his parents. It's just heart breaking," Price.

She says the last week has been a struggle for her and her classmates.
 "In everyone's life there's an empty desk. And sometimes you look over and its like oh wait there isn't a person there. And its not a good feeling."

Moe Sed's father and search organizers plan to be back on the street this week; passing out more flyers and hoping to find answers.
 If you would like to help in the search contact EMBARC 319-382-0954.
