What started out as a football game to raise awareness for breast cancer, turned into a show of support for missing Nelson County teen, Alexis Murphy.
Hundreds looked on as alumni from rivals E.C. Glass and Heritage High School played a flag football game today in Lynchburg for Murphy.
Her parents, friends and family were on hand selling t-shirts and spreading the word of Murphy's disappearance.
Tim Moss and B.B. Shavers organized the event, both concerned for the well being of the area's youth.
Organizer, Tim Moss told Your Hometown News Leader, "With all the parents and kids that we have out here today, it's just a great opportunity to raise awareness and the best way to prevent things like this from happening is to know that it could happen to you."
Moss says more than 500 people came out to today's event.
It's been just over 2 months since Alexis Murphy was last seen.
