A vigil was held yesterday morning to support the ongoing efforts to find two young Derry men.
Searches continued around the River Foyle over the weekend for Dean Millar and Jack Glenn.
Eighteen-year-old Dean, who is from the Creggan area of the city, went missing on March 11.
His relatives and friends are being supported in their search of the River Foyle by the family of Jack Glenn, the 23-yearold Waterside man seen entering the local river several weeks ago.
A ‘Camp Jack’ base has been set up underneath the Foyle Bridge as part of the efforts to find Jack.
Those involved in the searches for Jack are now also assisting those trying to find Dean.
The double tragedy has brought the families of the two missing men together.
The vigil was held in a car park beside the River Foyle at John Street.
Prayers at the event were led by Father Joe Gormley from the Creggan parish.
Jack’s mother, Hester, and Dean’s mother, Deirdre, both released white balloons at the vigil in the hope that they will find their sons.
Those involved in the searches for Jack and Dean have again appealed for anyone who can spare some time to come along and support their efforts.
