Open Thread – Candles for Samantha

Tonight in downtown Anchorage, almost a thousand people gathered at a candle light vigil for Samantha Koenig, a young woman of 18 years who was abducted forcibly from her place of work – a coffee hut in Midtown Anchorage. She was taken the night of February 1, and has not been seen since.

The Anchorage Daily News has details of the vigil HERE.

A Facebook page for Samantha can be found HERE.

Please contact the Anchorage Police Department if you have any information that might be helpful in solving this terrible crime.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Samantha Koenig.

    There was a baristas’ vigil in Fbks for her a couple of days ago, also. They invited a state trooper to talk about safety tips; some are described here:
