Friends and family are coming together Wednesday night to hold a vigil, reminding the public about the disappearance of Dashad "Sage" Smith.

The vigil is being held at Lee Park in Charlottesville, starting at 5:30 p.m.

Today, November 20, marks the one year anniversary in the disappearance of Smith. The family is still holding out hope that Dashad will return back to them.

Smith was last seen near the Amtrak station in Charlottesville, wearing a black jacket, dark grey sweat pants and a black scarf.

"Come forward, not just for Dashad, but for other missing people out there in the Charlottesville Albemarle area,” said Kenneth Jackson, Smith’s cousin. “This region has a huge amount of missing persons, I hate to say it, but minority young people. We really need to put a stop to this. We need to bring some justice to them. We need to bring these children home."

Jackson says the family wants to know what happened to Smith, and they want closure.
