People are being asked to light a candle and say a prayer for a missing Chilliwack woman on Saturday evening.

A virtual candlelight vigil is being held for Shaelene Bell, the 23-year-old mother of two young boys who has been missing since Jan. 30.

“Light a candle, say a prayer, spread Shaelene’s name and help bring her home,” wrote Dayna Pollard on Facebook page ‘Help Find Shaelene Bell Missing From Chilliwack B.C.’

The vigil takes place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27 where people throughout Chilliwack and across Canada are invited to “spread some light” for Bell.

Folks are encouraged to take photos of their lit candles that night and share them on social media using the hashtag #bringshaelenehome.
