Jessica Ridgeway Vigils In Superior, Westminster Draw Hundreds Of People (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Hundreds gathered for Tuesday night vigils held for missing Westminster 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway.

An estimated 250 showed for the vigil in Superior, the area where investigators found Jessica's backpack and water bottle on Sunday, and an estimated 700 more showed up in Westminster.

Purple ribbons were handed out at both vigils--Jessica's favorite color.

People held up their cellphones and flashlights toward the sky for the vigil, called "Light up the Night for Jessica."

Police officers spoke at both gatherings and encouraged people to continue sending them tips, and to report anyone suspicious.

At the gathering in Superior, Boulder County Sheriff's Sgt. Jim Chamberlin urged attendees to remember what Jessica looks like and reminded them that no tip is too small.

"If something bothers you in your gut--if you think it is odd, call it in," he said.
