GOLDEN CITY, Mo. -- Community members held a vigil Tuesday night in the park where Adriaunna Horton was last seen. Dozens of people came out to show their love and support for Adriaunna and her family. Those who attended were visibly upset about the events.

We spoke with friends and family at the ceremony held early this evening in the park where the little girl was last seen. Everyone is telling us they are still hopeful, but the morale is starting to dwindle with each hour that passes without finding Adriaunna.

"People you've never seen before in your life. You see a trailer load full of four-wheelers from a neighboring business, things like that. People on horseback, they just keep coming in. For such a sad time, it's a great thing. It's just wonderful," said Linda Brunner, Adriaunna's Great Aunt.

"This little girl is part of our family. We're family in this community and we watch out for our own and we want to bring her home," said Dixie Taylor, Golden City Resident.

"I love her with all my heart and I hope she's up in heaven with my grandpa. At least she won't be hurting," said Larry Horton, Uncle and Godfather.

Adriaunna's uncle says he is still hopeful she is alive, but he is fearing the worst. Volunteers have been told to get some rest tonight and pick backup in the morning. Law enforcement are still questioning Bourne and continuing to knock on doors this evening following any leads. If anyone has any information in the case, they are asked to contact the Barton County sheriff.
