Vigil Held For Kayleah Wilson

Friends And Strangers Pray For Missing Girl

The discovery of a body in Greeley has an entire community wondering, praying and hoping for the best.

Candles and stuffed animals were placed on a bridge near the water where the body was discovered.

Even though there's been nothing official from investigators, many Greeley residents said their gut tells them the body is that of 12-year-old Kayleah Wilson. Wilson was first reported missing in late March.

At a vigil Wednesday night near the scene of the discovery, many people held candles.

Many of those attending had never met the girl.

"I've just seen it on TV. Pictures and all. I feel so sad for the family," said Felicia Madison, a resident of Evans.

"I have children and grandchildren. And I always fear for them," she said.

Madison feels another family will appreciate her good thoughts and prayers.

"I told them if I could walk good, I would've been walking all over with a lot of people, hoping to find this child," said Madison.

"It's sad and it's scary," said Tanna Benavidez, a Greeley parent.

Regardless of who it may be, there's a sense of fear knowing something bad happened at the place they call home.

"I have an 11-year-old daughter. I think about it all of the time," said Benavidez.
