Organizers are the Bear Clan Patrol, Canadian Centre for Child Protection and Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak.

The vigil will be a way for friends, family and the general public to show support for Wood's family.

Christine came to Winnipeg last summer with her parents George and Melinda Wood for a medical appointment. She was last seen Aug. 19, 2016, leaving the hotel on Berry Street where her family was staying.

Police said this week that she was killed in a home in the 300 block of Burrows Ave. Brett Ronald Overby, 30, has been charged with second-degree murder.
