Family Holds Vigil, Prays For Missing Bridgeville Man
BRIDGEVILLE (KDKA) — The family of a Bridgeville man who vanished after a concert at Stage AE on the North Shore two weeks ago held a vigil.
Several hundred people showed up at Bethany Presbyterian Church Thursday night. They prayed that someone comes forward with information about Jimmy Slack’s disappearance.
“Thank you for all of your help getting Jimmy’s face out there,” Maureen Shields, Jimmy’s sister, said. “Thank you for loving our family and supporting us. We miss him. We want him home. Our hearts hurt.”
Slack became separated from a friend while at the December 6 concert. She went home alone. They finally reached Slack on his cell phone at 1 a.m. He said he was partying somewhere.
There was a second phone call at 3 a.m. He said he’d probably walk home. That was the last time they heard from him.
“We’re here tonight to ask for strength and courage and peace,” Shields said. “And we hope that this helps.”
So far, police say there is no sign of Slack. The family urges anyone who knows anything to contact Pittsburgh police or Bridgeville police.
