The vigil was held in Navarino at the ball park.

It was organized by several of Lisa Diemel's co-workers at Thedacare Family Birthing Center in Shawano.

The community lit candles, said a prayer and sang “Amazing Grace," hoping and praying the brothers are found safe.

“We feel love in the air but, it's still a somber feeling. People don't know what to say or do and people don't like to sit idle, so I think just being present is important and being gracious for everyone that here tonight,” said Elizabeth Telford, who helped organize the vigil.

Despite being last minute, roughly 100 people showed up to show their support.
