ROANOKE (WSLS10)- One organization looks to raise awareness about a missing person in the Roanoke Valley.

The AWARE Foundation hosted an event for Christopher Douthat, and members wanted to get the community together to see if there is any new information related to his disappearance.

Vinton Police say Douthat went missing in October of 2013 and that the Food Lion location on Bennigton Street was last his known location.

Christopher's mom, Mary said she wants closure.

"I need answers and I know who ever is out here you know something, you need to come forward, because it's not fair for a family to have to go through this," Mary Douthat, Chris' mom said.

Vinton police said they have received anonymous tips, and asks anyone with information to come forward.
