A community came out to honor the life of missing sailor Jacob Drake at a vigil Thursday night.

Drake is a native of the Champaign County village.

Family, friends and strangers shared their memories of the sailor.

Andrew Teets went to the same school as Drake.

"He seemed to always have a smile. Always really respectable. You never heard where he was in trouble or anything," said Teets.

People in attendance are holding onto hope for a miracle that Drake may be found alive.
