It was heartbreaking as John Camardello's family and friends came together Thursday night lighting a candle in hopes that he finds his way home.

Plowe Park in Dolgeville was packed for the vigil for the 57-year-old who has been missing since September 14.

He left his home with a gun and police say he may be a danger to himself.

Organizers didn't want this the vigil to feel like a memorial, but rather spark hope that John will return to his family.

Dolgeville Police Chief, Rich Cogndon gave an update on the investigation. Cogndon said the support and help from other agencies and the community has been huge.

John's wife Patricia, surrounded by family, was overwelmed with grief but also by the support.

"We can't thank everybody enough, we're so blessed, the community, the volunteers we just want him home," said Patricia. "We want him home and safe. We need him home. We're just beyond humbled with everybody that's helping and volunteering. The hugs and the prayers and just the words of hope. We're just waiting for him to come home and for this to end."

If you have any information on Camardello's whereabouts, call Herkimer county dispatch at 315-429-8231.
