All signs are pointing to the body found today on the shore of Lake Hodges, as being that of missing San Diego County teen, Chelsea King, with the Chelsea King Search Center Facebook page posting this afternoon, “Chelsea’s body has been confirmed.” She went missing after going for a solo jog on February 25th, and over 4,000 caring individuals had helped search for her. Tonight there was a previously planned candlelight vigil, once intended to bring attention to Chelsea and the search for her, but tonight it took on a whole new meaning for the thousands in attendance (including Chelsea’s family) with the heart-wrenching news of the day. SDNN posted a photo gallery from tonight’s vigil.
I can’t even imagine what Chelsea’s parents, her brother, and friends are going through, because I know how I’m feeling upon hearing the news. My heart goes out to everyone feeling the loss tonight. Rest in peace, Chelsea.
