Sonsoray Warford and Charles Walker were last seen at their Richmond apartment on June 29th.
Nine days, later many of their loved ones gathered at Lake Reba for a prayer ceremony.
Many wore yellow shirts, ribbons and carried yellow balloons. Gregory Todd, Warford's father, says the yellow is a sign of hope.
Todd says it's hard to keep that hope but ceremonies like this help him and other family members like Walker's daughter Destiny stay positive.
Emotion poured out of people as the balloons were released, the family's only hope is someone with information on where the couple may be comes forward.
