A candlelight vigil will be held in Martinez this evening for a local high school senior who has been missing since last week.

Friends and family members are planning a vigil for the Alhambra High School senior, at Creekside Open Bible Church at 444 Fig Tree Lane in Martinez at 6 p.m. Wednesday, according to a website dedicated to finding him.

Menjivar, 18, was reported missing on Feb. 26 after he left his Martinez home sometime in the middle of the night and did not return home or contact family, according to police. He was last seen at home around 11:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25.

The missing teen's brother, Mark Menjivar, wrote on the site that attendees should bring "yourself, your family if willing, and your warm hearts and well wishes, as this a community coming together to show a young teenager (and ALL young teenagers) that they are never alone."

Police said the teen is considered "at-risk" based on information found during the investigation into his disappearance, but declined to elaborate. Police said detectives are continuing to investigate the disappearance, which is being treated as a voluntary missing person case.

The 18-year-old is 6 feet tall and weighs about 165 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing dark jeans, a black shirt and a light green hooded sweatshirt, police said. Anyone with information about Menjivar's whereabouts is urged to contact Martinez police at (925) 372-3440.

this is sad i hope he is found safe but im becoming concerned about the alarming rate of sex offenders living here in Martinez i did a search on the internet and not only found alot of them living downtown very close to the schools but learned that theirs a pedophile living in his rv right across from the high school sometimes ive seen him driving it downtown here is what i found about him online http://mugshots.com/US-Counties/California/Contra-Costa-County-CA/Joseph-Cavazos.5512611.html this is very disturbing he also drives an older dodge brown pick up truck with a huge tan camper shell which is currently parked at the end of Alhambra next to the small park by Amtrak i see kids walking by there all the time and this worry's me especially at a time when an Alhambra student is missing why are we allowing these people to live on our streets where our kids walk to and from school
