Family and friends uniting tonight, hoping for the best as police search for Brookelyn Farthing, 18, in Madison County.

This is the second vigil the community has held this week.

While holding candles, they said prayers and sang songs at Pilot Knob Baptist Church in Madison County.

“She always had a smile on her face, she was always very kind and caring,” Brookelyn’s classmate Kelsey Schoet said. “And just never anything negative, she was always great to be around. And be involved with in all of our activities and stuff.”

The vigil comes on the same day that State Police started a ground search for Farthing.

Investigators say they covered 800 acres but did not find anything.

“There is defiently still hope. We're not going to give up until we find her,” Schoet said.
