GLENBURN - Hundreds of family members, friends, and community members were outside the Glenburn Town Office tonight, releasing yellow balloons in honor of 15 year-old Nichole Cable.
Friends say neon yellow was Nichole's favorite color.
Despite the rain, organizers say they were amazed to see the turnout.
"It's just kind of sending them up to the heavens to let her know we love her," says Holly Michaud, one of the many organizers of tonight's event and Nichole's friend.
Maine Equipment and Party Rentals provided free helium to support this vigil. Stores that supply balloons in the area say they were sold out by tonight's event.
The 15 year-old was reported missing the night of Mother's Day. Her body was found in a wooded area in Old Town a little more than a week later. 20 year-old Kyle Dube of Orono is charged with her murder.
Dube made his first court appearance Wednesday morning. His lawyer has requested the affidavit in the case be impounded, citing a concern for his client's safety following a number of threats.
Nichole was a sophomore at Old Town High School. Administrators say she was a bright and charming young woman.
No word yet on funeral arrangements for Nichole.
