Orrin and Orson West have been missing since December 21,2020. Friday was Orson's 4th Birthday.
Family and friends got together at Destiny Banquet Hall in Bakersfield with members of the community to celebrate Orson's birthday.
"It' s important because he is four. Just because he's not here doesn't mean we aren't supposed to do anything," said party attendee Keisha Stevenson.
The group also held this party to remind the boys, and the community that they have not forgotten about them.
"We just wanted to bring awareness to this situation and let the babies know, hopefully that they are out there and that we are fighting for them. We are looking for them and we are not going to stop. We are going to continue to pray, bring awareness and do whatever we can to bring these babies home," said Cole Crenshaw, friend of the missing boys family.
The event organizers said this would not have been possible if the community had not come together to help plan this. People donated goodie bags, time, money, food, and the banquet hall even let them use the space for free.
We reached out to the Bakersfield Police Department and they said there is no update in the missing boys investigation, but it is still an active investigation.
