Earlier this week, friends and family of Woodson High School senior Bryan Glenn expected to see him take the football field with his Cavaliers for Saturday's homecoming game.
Instead, they'll take the field after the game for a vigil to support the 17-year-old student who went missing Monday, coming together to support his family and make sense of why and how he might have disappeared.
The vigil, organized by Bryan's younger brother Marty, begins immediately after the game, at 4 p.m. Saturday at the high school, 9525 Main Street, Fairfax.
"He is a good guy to everyone, a good friend, and an even better brother.
Let's bring him home," says the group named "Find Bryan Glenn" on Facebook, which as of Friday night had reached 1,314 members.
Bryan Glenn, 17, was last seen at the WHS junior parking lot Monday morning, then again at the Dunkin Donuts on Fairfax Boulevard in Fairfax City about an hour later. A missing persons report has been filed with the Fairfax County Police Department, according to Fairfax County Public Schools.
On Tuesday morning, Glenn's vehicle was found in the Thaiss Park parking lot on Pickett Road.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children lists 17-year-old Woodson High School student Bryan Glenn as an endangered runaway, but family and friends are adamant that it's not true. They fear something happened to Bryan to make him just disappear.
"I am 100 percent sure that Bryan did not just walk away from his close-knit family," said Julia Ross, a SAT prep/college coach who worked with Bryan and his brother up to three times a week for a past few months. "I have worked with teens for 20 years and have seen it all — the good, the bad and the ugly. Bryan is part of the good."
