For Final time, baloons will rise for Kayla Berg
space
For the final time, balloons will fill the skies over Antigo in honor of Kayla May Berg, on the anniversary of her disappearance 10 years ago.

“A Night of Hope” 10 Years Still Searching” will take place Sunday at the Hudson Street pavilion at Lake Park. Balloons will be released art 6 p.m. rain or shine. The forecast is suggesting sunny conditions will prevail.

Each one of the estimated 800 balloons will carry information about the case, with the hope someone who may know something may come upon one. In years past the balloons have been located in far off places, including one that traveled across Lake Michigan to Frankfort, Michigan.

Berg was 15 when she was given a ride to Wausau by a friend and not seen again. Her mother, Hope Sprengler has never given up hope of someday finding her daughter--or at least the circumstances of her disappearance--and has become a nationwide advocate for missing and exploited children, even traveling to Washington D.C. earlier this year to a national conference focused on the subject.

The case has also gained national attention, and Kayla’s face and information is emblazoned on the side of a big Karl’s Transport semi-tractor trailer unit.

Friends and family have gathered each year on the date of Berg’s disappearance to remember her and release the balloons in her honor.

But this year, organizers said, will be the last balloon release, although the search will continue.

More information on Missing Not Forgotten is available on their Facebook page. Anyone with any information on the case is urged to call the Antigo Police Department at (715) 627-6411 or Langlade County Crimestoppers at 715-627- NAIL.
