The paternal family of a missing 8-month-old Tempe boy is holding a candlelight vigil for him in a Scottsdale park on Sunday.

The family of Logan McQueary, the father of Gabriel Johnson, who has been missing since Dec. 26, is inviting the public to the vigil in honor of Gabriel at 6 p.m. Sunday at Chaparral Park. The park is at 5401 N. Hayden Road, and the vigil will be held at the south soccer field.

The baby, Gabriel Johnson, has been missing since Dec. 26 when he was last seen in San Antonio, Texas, where his mother, Elizabeth Johnson took him in the midst of a custody battle with McQueary. The story has received national media attention.

Johnson is being held on a $1.1 million cash bond in the Maricopa County Estrella Jail. She has remained uncooperative with authorities about revealing Gabriel's whereabouts since her arrest in Miami Beach, Fla., on Dec. 30, according to Tempe police.

The McQueary family said they are hopeful that the baby will be safely returned.

Anyone with information about Gabriel's whereabouts can call The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at (800) 843-5678.
