Worried family and friends gathered Friday night on Staten Island to pray for the safe return of a man who mysteriously disappeared eight days ago.

A candlelight vigil was held at the place where John Casalaspro was last seen on October 9th.

The 25-year-old was hanging out with friends near the waters off Port Richmond.

The next day, he didn't show up to his job as a plumber's assistant and he hasn't been heard from since.

Crews searched the water Thursday night after a cousin thought he possibly saw a body floating in the distance, but no body was found.
