More than 100 friends joined the family of Josh Guimond in Maple Lake Saturday to mark the 10th anniversary of the St. John's University student's disappearance, KARE-TV reported.

Guimond, 20, disappeared the night of Nov. 9, 2002, heading back to his dorm after leaving a party on campus -- and his family maintains he was taken against his will.

Guimond's parents held a prayer vigil at Holy Cross Lutheran Churn in Maple Lake, where their son was confirmed.

Josh Guimond's father, Brian Guimond, said he has "no reason to believe he's not alive."

The family has a website dedicated to finding Josh Guimond where people can find out more information on the case and leave tips.

See KARE's video on the vigil below.
