Nelson County High School held a 'pink-out' at their football game against William Campbell High School on Friday night to show their support for the family of missing teenager Alexis Murphy.

Hundreds of people came dressed in pink to the home football game. Pink was Alexis' favorite color.

During half time a group of her family and friends released dozens of pink balloons in Alexis' honor.

The pink-out was organized in part by the cheerleading squad in cooperation with some of Alexis' family.

Their coach, Kim Hillier, says that they just wanted to show that Alexis is still missed and that everyone at the school his behind the Murphy family.

"She is missed everyday and we just want to let the family know that we love her, we're praying for her and we're going to remember her every day and keep looking for her. We want to get her name back out in the news so we had the community come in and, in so many ways, show them we're standing with them."

Alexis Murphy would be a senior at Nelson High this year. She was last seen in Lovingston last August.

Randy Taylor has been arrested and charged with her abduction.
