A special vigil is set to be held this week in Ballymena in memory of 21-year-old Chloe Mitchell.

The young local woman went missing over a week ago in the town, before police confirmed on Sunday evening (11th June) that a murder investigation had been launched after a discovery was made in the search.

Organised by local charity Turning Point NI, members of the community are invited to go along to the planned vigil on Wednesday evening, 14th June, in King George's Park, in Harryville. The event will begin at 7.30pm.

Commenting on the planned gathering, Trudi Power from Turning Point NI, said:


"Turning Point NI is holding this vigil to bring solidarity to the whole community within the Harryville and Ballymena area due to the recent heartbreaking circumstances surrounding Chloe and her family.


"We wish to bring comfort to Chloe’s family and friends at this very difficult time."


Following the announcement by police on Sunday evening, North Antrim MLA Mr Robin Swann, alongside colleague, Ballymena Councillor Colin Crawford have called on the entire community “to continue to rally around the Mitchell family circle as it has emerged that the disappearance of 21-year-old Chloe has now become a murder enquiry”.

In a joint statement, the local MLA and councillor said:

“This is heartbreaking news for the Mitchell family and the Harryville community.

“Our thanks go to the Community Rescue Service, the Police and all those who have helped and supported the family in the past number of days.

“Anyone who can assist the police should contact them at the numbers provided".
