    Family and friends held a vigil for Rhony Ramos on a street corner in the neighborhood, holding out hope that he'll come home. He was last seen on the morning of Nov. 28, after his mother woke him up for work.

    "He overslept, he just said, 'Bye, Mom,'" according to his brother Freddie Ramos. "She looked out the window, she seen him rushing towards the train. He took the train but he never came home. He never made it to work and never came home."
