A vigil will be held Saturday for an Iowa City native who went missing while hiking in Colorado.

James Nelson, who now lives in Chicago, is a City High graduate and alumnus of Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa.

He went missing while hiking in the Holy Cross Mountain Range in Colorado during the first week of October.

Family and friends of Nelson will hold the vigil at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, 2301 E. Court St. from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.

According to a letter from Nelson’s sister, Christy Nelson Waters, the vigil will be a way to inform the community of the search and rescue mission that is taking place in Colorado. Information will be provided for those who wish to donate to the search or a general memorial for Nelson.

Family will be available 30 minutes before and after the vigil.
