Wahpeton, ND (WDAY TV) - As campus police follow up on leads, friends, classmates and staff at North Dakota State College of Science held a "Vigil of Hope" For Andrew Sadek Thursday night.

Sadek hasn't been seen since the early morning hours of May 1st.

Nearly 100 people circled on a gym floor at NDSCS, showing support, sharing memories, praying, and telling Andrew Sadek, it's time to come home.

Roommates and friends shared their favorite moments with Sadek, from attending concerts to experimenting with the art of "fire breathing."

And nearly everyone who spoke, held on to hope that Andrew isn't gone, just gone away.

One, who didn't know Andrew, stepped up to the microphone as well.

Saying they do in fact know him now, through the incredible support and kind words spoken of him since he's been gone.

A faculty member shared that Sadek's disappearance has been devastating for the campus and community, and as a mother, a plea to Andrew, saying "There's nothing you could have done wrong that should keep you away. We will all support you if you come back to your family.”

Drew Kugel/Sadek’s Roommate: “I don't know exactly where he is but I don't like to think he's gone. I like to think that he's just away. You know, he'll be back. We'll find him eventually, and everything will be alright. I guess maybe denial, but I'd just like to think that maybe he's still with us.”

Another NDSCS staff member also had a message for Andrew, "Come back so we can give you that degree you've earned over the past two years."

If you have any information on Sadek's disappearance, you're asked to call 701-671-2245.
