A memorial service will be held Wednesday for the 21 women missing from the Downtown Eastside.

The service begins at 2 p.m. at the First United Church at 320 East Hastings, and burgundy ribbons will be available to wear in remembrance.

After the service, flowers will be carried to CRAB Park on Main Street, where a memorial bench will be dedicated to those missing.

Two weeks ago, a $100,000 reward was put up to aid the investigation.

Since 1995, 22 'street-involved' women, mostly prostitutes and drug addicts, have gone missing from the Downtown Eastside. No bodies have been discovered and only one woman has been found alive, leaving 21 still missing.

Friends and relatives of the missing women believe a serial killer may be responsible for the disappearances.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Missing Women Memorial Bench at any branch of the Bank of Montreal #27270-8060-059, or donations can be made on May 12 at the church or park.
