Supporters of Jesse Galganov, who went missing in Peru, march through Pointe-Claire
Dozens marched down Brunswick Boulevard in Pointe-Claire Sunday afternoon to show their support for the family of Jesse Galganov, who has been missing for months in South America.
Organizers said Sunday's march was about “bringing Jesse home” and showing that they hadn’t yet lost hope.
Galganov has been missing since October 1st of last year when he disappeared in Peru.
His family have still not given up hope, with his father and mother both in South America today, spreading posters and continuing the search for their son.
The decision to hold the rally today, on Mother’s Day, was no accident.
Tanya Formagie says that “no mother, no parent, should ever have to go through this.”
Organizers read a prayer before setting off on a march down Brunswick Boulevard; prayers were also read at companion marches around the world, including in Toronto and Lima.
Suzie Shaffer told CJAD 800 that anything anyone does to keep Jesse in the public’s minds is important.
“His story is not an old story, it’s a current story.”
Added Formagie, “Jesse’s not the only one that’s gone missing.”
