WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - A rosary was held Monday night for Kansas native Robert (Bobby) Cuillo who was last seen in Scottsdale, Arizona.

A missing persons report was filed with the Scottsdale Police Department over the weekend. Cuillo was last seen on Saturday, July 17, around 1 a.m. near Wasted Grain in Scottsdale. Investigators are following up on leads and examining videos from businesses in the area.

KPHO in Phoenix reports that around 9:30 a.m. on Monday, a body was pulled from the canal in the same area Cuillo went missing. Friends and family fear it could be the body of the 23-year-old missing man.

A vigil was set to be held Monday night at the Church of the Magdalen in Wichita for Cuillo, but the church updated a post on Facebook to say that those in attendance would instead be asked to “pray for the repose of Cuillo’s soul.”
