LUBBOCK, TX -- Family and friends of missing teen Zoe Campos held a candlelight vigil Thursday night, praying for her return. This was the second vigil in a week, and the third time family and friends have come together in a week in an effort to find and pray for Zoe.

"It was a real good turnout, and it just lifted me up a little more," Melinda Campos, Zoe's mother, said.  Zoe has not been seen since November 17th, almost a month ago, and now Lubbock Police, the FBI, and family and friends are all looking for answers.  The Lubbock Police also recently held a news conference to say Zoe was considered missing and endangered. Lubbock police believe she may have connections to Abilene, Austin, or El Paso, Texas.

Zoe's mother said it's the support from family and friends that helps get her through each day. "It means a whole lot to me, we've got a great family support, so does her dad's side, they're, they're wonderful. Everybody's been great," she said.

About 50 people came together Thursday night at Trinity Church, to light candles, hold hands, and support one another. Tuesday, they had another prayer service, which Melinda said also had a good turn out.  This past Sunday, they also handed out more posters with Zoe's picture and information, hoping it would help lead to answers.

Campos said it's been very hard since her daughter went missing, and said all she wants is to hold her daughter once again. "Baby girl, I love you and I miss you, and I can't wait til I hold you again. all of us, I love you Zoe," she said.

There is a $5,000 reward for information about Zoe's whereabouts. If you have any information regarding Zoe, call the Crime Line at 741-1000. You can remain anonymous.
