BATONR ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — A candlelight prayer vigil will be held Sunday at 6 p.m. for missing LSU student Kori Gauthier.
The vigil will be held at the Downtown Baton Rouge Galvez Plaza, which is near City Hall and the River Center Library.
Bishop Michael Duca, East Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, Opelousas Mayor Julius Alsandor and LSU President Tom Galligan plan to give remarks at the vigil.
Gauthier, an LSU freshman from Opelousas, was last seen on Monday.
Early Tuesday morning, Gauthier was traveling on the Mississippi River bridge on I-10 in Baton Rouge when, for reasons still under investigation, her car was abandoned on the bridge and had been struck by another vehicle.
Her car was towed to a junkyard with her cellphone and personal belongings inside of it, but Gauthier was no where to be found.
The search for Gauthier is ongoing.
