Jake Wilson's family shares the following message ahead of tonight's vigil:

"Thank you to all the people who are here for the vigil and to all who have been searching for Jake since his disappearance. All Jake’s brothers will be at the vigil tomorrow night and we want them all reunited soon. We want Jake home, so please continue sharing Jake’s face through posters, bracelets, window clings, or whatever means you can to remind people to continue looking for him or sharing his face on social media, or providing tips and information to help bring him home. The support we have received has been overwhelming and we can’t thank everyone enough for helping us BRING JAKE HOME!!"

If you would like to buy a window cling or a bracelet for Jake, you can contact Barb Bader at LPC Connect for bracelets and Michelle Bush at La Porte City Funeral Home for window clings. 

The Union soccer team has a home game tonight, and they are planning on all wearing their blue shirts. As soon as the JV game is over, the players and their parents will all walk down to the vigil.
