FARMINGTON — A vigil for a missing University of Maine at Farmington student drew more than 250 friends and relatives who gathered for mutual support.
Kevin Zebrowski, 21, has been missing since he disappeared New Year’s Eve from a bar in Carrabassett Valley. Police have few clues as to his whereabouts.
His mother, Maureen Zebrowski, asked everyone to “focus positive energy on Kevin’s return.”
Zebrowski’s parents and 18-year-old brother have refused to return to their home in Rahway, N.J., until the missing student is found.
Each person at the vigil was given a candle and a small blue ribbon with the initials “KZ” written on one end.
“Think positive thoughts about Kevin,” urged Douglas Dunlap, Zebrowski’s academic adviser. “This is not a memorial service — this is a gathering of hope.”
Erik “Moe” Morrison, a friend, said Zebrowski had the ability to “embrace every moment.”
“I admire him greatly and I miss him,” he said.
Despite a $10,000 reward, there have been no leads in the investigation. Carrabassett Valley police and Maine State Police have continued to call across the region and the country, trying to track down people who may have seen Zebrowski at the New Year’s Eve party at Judson’s Sugarloaf Motel and Gondola Lounge.
