RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The community will come together Friday night to hope for the safe return of a missing Henrico woman.

20-year-old Arianna Davis hasn't been seen since April 30.

Arianna Davis is better known as "Peaches" to her family and friends. And it's those close ones that are hoping everyday for her safe return.

Everyday, Zandra Shearin holds out hope that her missing daughter will walk through her front door.

Peaches disappeared at the end of April near her home off Nine Mile Road. About 10 days later, Henrico police told the media they believed foul play was involved.

In early June, Peaches' mom thought police were slow to take the case seriously.

She went to the Board of Supervisors pleading for their help to find her daughter - investigators assured her they were doing the best they can.

But even now, their efforts haven't found the missing loved one.

"I need her to come back home. I need closure," said Shearin.

The vigil is set for 7 p.m. at First Union Baptist Church in Henrico. That's on 3500 Dill Road in Highland Springs.

Peaches' church raised $1,000 for a reward, and she is features on the National Missing Person's System website.
