NELSON COUNTY, VA -

It's been three weeks since 17-year-old Alexis Murphy disappeared.

As the search continues, members of the community are working together to help the Murphy family.

Elements Auto Club hosted a benefit cruise at the Ebony and Ivory Field in Roseland.

Cars and bikes were decorated in pink ribbons, while supporters sold Alexis Murphy t-shirts.

Murphy's aunt, Trina Murphy,  says she was thrilled with the event, "I think it's just a nice way for all of us to get together, spend a beautiful Saturday , Alexis is never far from my thoughts. This is a nice way for us to kind of relax. This is something that we enjoy doing on a regular weekend."

The event raised more than $2,500.

A surprise auction brought in an additional $2,000.
