A candlelight vigil was held in Port Hardy on Sunday evening for Terrance Brown Jr., one of three men presumed to have drowned after a fishing boat capsized near Tofino last month.
His sister says that Brown was born and raised in the northern Vancouver Island community before moving to Tofino 5-years ago to live with his father.
On Sunday at 7 p.m., a group gathered for a vigil on the Government Dock.
Five men were on-board the 6-metre vessel that capsized and sank off the cost of Tofino before dawn on June 15th.
Police say there was no mayday call.
Two were later rescued, but Brown, Marcel Martin and Carl Michael have still not been found.
All three men are fathers and members of the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation
Their boat was later recovered by the RCMP Underwater Recovery Team near Duffin Passage.
A GoFundme campaign is underway to try to help support the men’s children, you can find a link here.
