DUBLIN -- Determined not to forget a girl who vanished 24 years ago while walking home from school, family and friends of Ilene Misheloff will hold their annual candlelight march and vigil Wednesday.

The public is invited to join the walk starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Misheloff's old school -- Wells Intermediate, 6800 Penn Drive.

Marchers will travel to St. Raymond's Church, 11555 Shannon Ave., for a short prayer service at 8 p.m.

The event is held annually on the anniversary of Misheloff's disappearance in an effort to keep interest alive in the case that shook Dublin and frustrated authorities.

"We will follow the same path she took that day," said her father Mike Misheloff, one of the organizers of the vigil. The event attracted 100 people last year.

He urges anyone with information about the case to call Dublin police at 925-833-6670.

Misheloff was 13 years old when last seen on Jan. 30, 1989. She was walking on westbound Amador Valley Boulevard. A dedicated ice skater, Misheloff was heading to an ice skating lesson after school.

She was 5 feet, 3 inches tall, had brown eyes and shoulder-length brown hair, and wore braces.

A $100,000 award is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for her disappearance.

Information about Misheloff is available at www.find-ilene.org.
