SOUTH BOSTON - A vigil was held on Castle Island Sunday evening to remember 4-year-old Mohamed Fofana.

The little boy disappeared May 14 while playing on the island's playground with his sister and grandfather. His body was found on the shore of Spectacle Island the next day, about a mile across the water.

People at the vigil lit candles and said prayers in a tribute to him Sunday.

Mohamed's mother also spoke, saying she's grateful for everyone's kindness since her son's death.
