POPLAR BLUFF -- Sunday marks eight days since Rebecca Hargon, her husband Michael and their four-year-old son James Patrick were discovered missing from their home in Vaughan, Mississippi. Their relatives in Poplar Bluff are still clinging to hope that the family will be found soon.A family waits for answers...but now they know they aren't waiting alone.
Friends and family of Rebecca, Michael and James Patrick gathered to offer their prayers and support to relatives in Poplar Bluff. The band that played at the Hargon's wedding provided entertainment during the vigil, performing songs such as 'Amazing Grace' and 'Wind Beneath My Wings.'
"We're out here to support the family. We know that they are going through such trying times down in Mississippi, and we feel so useless here in Poplar Bluff, and we just want them to know that we are praying for them and with them and that we are thinking of them every minute," said Charlotte Clark, a friend of the family.
Mayor Scott Faughn proclaimed Sunday, February 22, 2004 as 'prayer day' for the Hargon family. He says this is a good example of how the folks in Poplar Bluff are able to pull together in the face of the unknown.
