SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – Family members of Tennessee's missing gathered in Shelbyville Saturday in hopes of gaining new leads that could bring their loved ones home.

A vigil was held to honor six active missing persons cases: Antonio Taylor has been missing since 1999, Bobby Smelcher since 2010, Shelley Mook since 2011, Paul Massicotte since 2011, and then just last year, brother and sister Gage Daniel and Chloie Leverette.

Organizers said it's important to keep the cases in the public eye because it's the only way new leads may come in.

"This could be the night where someone out there says I'm going to make that call, and that's exactly what we need," said Kristy Smelcer, the vigil organizer.

Last year, Bedford officials found what they believe is Bobby Smelcher's skull in the Duck River.

An Amber Alert is still active for Gage Daniel and Chloie Leverette, although officials are still trying to determine if the children died in a house fire that killed their grandparents.
