Rochester, N.Y. (GSLSHOW) - The Blue Cross Arena will host a vigil Monday night to honor Trevyan Rowe, the 14-year-old who went missing Thursday and whose body was discovered Sunday evening in the Genesee River. AutismUp, which helped organize some of the citizen search parties for Rowe, has put the event together. Details are still coming together, but AutismUp confirms the event will start at 7 pm and is open to the public.
Rachel Rosner, AutismUp's director of education and support services, joined Good Day Rochester Monday morning with the news of the vigil and to share her perspective on the community's outpouring for Trevyan Rowe.
“This evening we will join parents, neighbors and a community united to protect our community’s most vulnerable children.” said Sarah Milko, Executive Director of AutismUp. “This is every parent’s worst nightmare and we want to continue to support one another through this terrifying situation.” More than 1,000 volunteers came together in Rochester to search for Trevyan after he was declared missing Thursday night. Rochester Police Chief Michael Ciminelli announced at a news conference Sunday night that the body of a young African-American man matching the description of Trevyan was pulled from the Genesee River Sunday afternoon. People have been donating thousands of dollars to Trevyan's family in his memory through a GoFundMe fundraising page.
