Friends and family are still hoping to find the last remaining Berks Co. boater who went missing in the Susquehanna river, Saturday.
Jonny Velez, 21, from Muhlenberg Township, is still missing, investigators said.
"There's still another one of our friends out there. And we want to get him back," said Austin Seidel, friend.
Velez was out boating with his two friends, when the boat capsized in Peach Bottom Twp., York Co., authorities said.
One of the boaters, Brandon Allen, 20, of Muhlenberg Township, managed to survive by swimming by to shore.
The body of Cody Moyer, 20, from Laureldale, was found floating in the river Monday afternoon, officials say, by a resident who had seen previous news stories and used his own boat to help out in the search.
"We all need to sit back and remember Cody as he was, happy, full of life, energy, never, never a bad day for Cody," said Brian Ricchiuti, friend.
A candlelight vigil was held for Moyer Monday night in Muhlenberg Township.
Organizers say about 125 people came out to reminisce and remember Moyer.
Moyer's ex-fiancée, who is also five months pregnant with their child, was also there.
She says she's expecting a girl.
"He was just genuine. He was just something else. I can't even really explain it. He was just a great guy. We were engaged. I still have the ring on to this day," said Sarah Lombardo, Moyer's ex-fiancée.
Family and friends say they plan to return to the Susquehanna, Tuesday, to continue to search for Velez.
