HARRISBURG, Ore. – Exactly two weeks after 27-year-old Michael Bryson went missing, his family has not given up hope for his return.

A Circle of Hope Vigil was held Wednesday night at 7:30 at the Harrisburg Riverfront Park at the end of Smith Street.

"Every prayer that has been said for our family -- we have received. It has given us the strength to get up every day and search with no clues," said Parrish Bryson, Michael's father.

Parrish said the vigil was not a celebration of Michael's life, but a message to his son that he is deeply loved and deeply missed.

The family is still offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the discovery of their son, who went missing from the Hobo Camp Campground. 

LCSO is investigating, but every day crowds search the woods where Michael was last seen.

"We're still up there searching. We're doing everything we can every day to come up with clues," said Trent Magnuson, Michael's uncle.

Bryson’s father said he believes foul play may have been involved, and he’s confident the truth will be revealed.

"If Michael is out there watching this -- there is no shame in your life. There is no shame in where you're at. Grace and forgiveness are huge," said Parrish.
