A candlelight vigil will be held Saturday for a 22-year-old man who went missing from Anoka in November.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension issued a missing-person alert for Kevin Casserly. The BCA says his vehicle was later found in Anoka.
Casserly called his mom Nov. 11 saying he had the flu and had called in sick to work. Anoka County Sheriff's Office Detective Mike Schantzen says he was last seen the next day in the Anoka area but couldn't give other details.
His sister, Alexandra Casserly, said he previously used methamphetamine but was clear of that now. She says he was very involved in his two children's lives and he just wouldn't disappear.

Friends and family are planning to walk around Anoka. A prayer and candlelight vigil starts at 5:45 p.m., according to a Facebook page set up to find Casserly.
