Connecticut residents light candles on doorsteps for missing woman's safe return

NEW CANAAN, Conn. -

Residents in Connecticut are leaving lit candles on their doorsteps for the safe return of a woman missing for over a week.

Neighbors in New Canaan placed candles on their front steps and porches Monday night in the hope that Jennifer Dulos will return home safely to her five children.

There have been a number of prayer vigils at churches for the 50-year-old who went missing on Friday, May 24.

More candles were placed in front of Saint Aloysius Church. Residents say they will continue to put out candles for Jennifer and her children every Monday until she is found.

The FBI searched for clues in Waveny Park where Dulos' 2017 black-colored Chevy Suburban was found the day she went missing.

Police searched the park extensively last week, and now FBI's Evidence Response Team Unit is assisting.

Dulos' estranged husband Fotis Dulos and his girlfriend Michelle Troconis have been charged with tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and hindering prosecution in connection with her disappearance. Police say more charges are expected.

New Canaan police are asking anyone with information on this case to call their tip line.
