Vigil for Danny Barter Saturday June 20, 2009 Foley,AL

From our friends on Facebook:

Upcoming vigil in June 2009 Saturday June 20, 2009 6pm.

In June 2009 Lynn and Danny's family are planning a candle light vigil for Danny. This will mark the 50th anniversary of his disappearance in 1959.

It seems with all the new publicity Danny's story has received recently, there has been a lot of confusion as to the location of the campsite. Yes, this was a family camping trip, but this was not a public camping area. This was not a state park or anything of the like. This was a private lot on private property. This area was very remote back in 1959. The family's beach site could not be seen from the road because it was a wooded area.

We appreciate opinions and ideas, but wish they would not be put into public statements without prior approval from the family. Danny's disappearance is a very sensitive issue to us, as well as, an ongoing and open investigation. We understand there are many who only wish to help and we are very grateful. Those who show interest only for selfish intentions are not desired. We take our missing loved one very seriously and do not have time for malicious ambitions.

We only want to find our brother and live our lives in peace. We respect and appreciate everything that the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office, the Mobile FBI, and the media has done for us over the years. Without them, we would not have gotten this far. The late Sheriff Taylor Wilkins of Baldwin County was very devoted to finding Danny and spent 3 nights in his car after the search was called off. He wanted to make sure Danny was not alone if he wandered back to the site.

Sheriff Wilkins never forgot Danny, even after his retirement.

Our hopes for the vigil on June 20th is to bring together our family, friends and community to help remember Danny and promote awareness, not only for Danny's disappearance, but other missing persons as well.

The missing of a loved one is one of the hardest ordeals a family could endure, especially when the victim is a child. We strongly believe that someone out there knows what happened to Danny and possibly knows him as another identity.

We hope to find him safe and sound, but most importantly, we seek closure. It has been 50 years and we feel it is time for some answers.

Thank you,

The Barter Family
