MILWAUKEE---Family and friends of a missing University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee student walked for hope.

24-year-old Nick Wilcox has not been seen since a night out on New Year’s Eve at the Irish Rec Room on Old World Third Street.

The gathering Thursday evening began with group prayer. More than 200 people walked from the Irish Rec Room about three blocks to Rusty’s Old 50.

With tears in his eyes, the elder Nick Wilcox said he has not given up. “I still think he’s going to give me a call and say, dad here I am.”

The Wilcox family is overwhelmed by the support they have received. They plan to resume their search for Nick at 8 am Saturday starting at the Irish Rec Room.
