WATERBORO, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Members of the Waterboro community turned out Tuesday night to show their support for the family of missing teenager Jaden Dremsa.
About 40 people gathered in a field for a candlelight vigil. Several of Jaden's classmates from Massabesic High School attended. People were asked to wear blue, Jaden's favorite color. A prayer was said, and people voiced the words "bring him home" in unison. Those gathered signed a large card that will be delivered to the missing teen's mother. Organizers say people support each other in a small community like this.
Rick Pouliot of Waterboro said, "Each day is starting to get more pressing on us. God willing, we're still hoping. You hear somebody snapping the brush ahead of you and you're hoping that might've been him. Just hasn't worked out so far."
Jaden Dremsa's mother posted a message on Facebook, telling organizers it was sweet thing for them to do. She also said she was emotionally drained and would not be able to attend the vigil.
