Baltimore vigil held for 4 missing Pennsylvania men
BALTIMORE (AP) — About 50 students, faculty and staff gathered at a Baltimore university’s chapel to pray for four missing Pennsylvania men, including one of the school’s students.
The missing student, Jimi Tar Patrick, is a rising sophomore at Loyola University Maryland, a Jesuit school.
The Baltimore Sun reports Director of Campus Ministry Sean Bray said the group wanted to honor the request of Patrick’s grandmother: to “storm heaven with our prayers for Jimi’s safe return.”
University President The Rev. Brian Linnane, says Patrick finished his freshman year “with distinction.”
Linnane says the university wants “to be with him and his family and hope for the best.”
Patrick disappeared a week ago. Three other young men disappeared Friday.
A 20-year-old man was arrested Wednesday on charges of trying to sell a car belonging to one of the missing men.
