A gathering will take place Tuesday night in honor of Ryan Larsen’s 12th birthday.
Larsen, who has autism, vanished after walking out of school May 17.
The event is set to take place at Central Park in La Vista at 7:30 p.m.
“We hope to collect birthday cards he can open when he comes home,” a flyer advertising the event said.
Participants are asked to wear green.
“We will have green ribbon pins, flyers to share and a card station to create birthday wishes for Ryan and thank you cards for local law enforcement for their efforts,” the flyer said.
A short presentation will be held as well as a moment of prayer.
Ryan’s sister Taylor posted a heartbreaking note for his birthday on Facebook:
“Happy birthday to the funniest and kindness kid I know. I miss you so much Ryan. You are so strong and loved by so many. Please come home soon so you can celebrate your birthday with us. Happy 12th birthday, I love you,” the post said.
