Prayer vigil held for missing Magnolia teenager


As the search continues for 15-year-old Ryder Cambron, the church that she and her family attend held a prayer vigil Wednesday afternoon.

“The family is a part of our church. We just found out about this obviously yesterday and we’re all just crushed and wanted to get together as a community of Christ followers and pray,” said Dr. Stephen Burrell, senior pastor at Magnolia Bible Church.

Cambron disappeared Tuesday night in the area of 20550 Imperial Oak Drive in Magnolia. She was last seen riding on a “Mule” style UTV. The vehicle was located, along with her cell phone, in a wooded area near a park.

The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of several other agencies, searched the area throughout the night and into Wednesday, but so far have found no sign of the missing teen.

At the vigil Wednesday, prayers were offered for Cambron and her parents.

“We want to pray for a positive outcome that we find her and that she’s well,” added Burrell.

Burrell said the Cambrons have been a part of Magnolia Bible Church for a number of years, and they are very involved with the church. Burrell said he had just spoken to the family on Sunday.

“They’re just a part of our family,” said Burrell.
