A candlelight vigil and walk were held Wednesday evening to mark the 30th anniversary of the disappearance of Ilene Misheloff, who vanished while walking home from a Dublin middle school in 1989.
Misheloff was 13 years old when she vanished while walking home from Wells Middle School on Jan. 30, 1989.
Family and friends of Misheloff participated in the vigil, which began at Wells Middle School at 6800 Penn Drive and followed most of Misheloff's path on the day she disappeared. The walk proceeded for about 2.5 miles to Saint Raymond's Catholic Church at 11555 Shannon Ave., where an ecumenical prayer service was held.
Misheloff's family members said that with the help of Dublin Police Services and the FBI, they continue to search for her.
The family said in a statement that Wednesday "marks 30 very long years since our precious daughter, Ilene Misheloff, was kidnapped by a stranger from the streets of Dublin."
The family said, "Please help us spread the word as far and wide as possible that we want our child back."
