REDDING, Calif. - More than 150 people gathered last Saturday at a federal district court house on Bechelli Lane, creating a sea of red clothing, to stand in solidarity with Missing and Murdered Indigenous People in Northern California - specifically Nick Patterson (Pat River Tribe), a 27-year-old who has been missing for more than 15 months.

"The family feels like they are not getting answers," said Redding Rancheria Chairman Jack Potter Jr., who spoke at the vigil. "They're trying to believe that he's still alive, but yet they believe he's gone. (They are) just hoping that somebody will be compassionate and have a heart and come forward and say, 'Yes, I know, this is what happened.'"
