NEWPORT, Ore. (AP) - A candlelight vigil for the 6-year-old autistic boy who was dropped off the Yaquina (yah-KWIN’-ah) Bay Bridge will be held Saturday night in Newport.

KATU reports (https://bit.ly/1sjwdOu ) as part of the memorial for London McCabe at the Rogue Brewery, classmates will release balloons at 7 p.m. Saturday.

His body was found after his mother called 911 Monday and said she dropped her son into the water.

Jillian McCabe is being held without bail and has not entered pleas to charges of aggravated murder, murder and manslaughter.

An uncle said she was under intense emotional distress from years of caring for the child and more recently for her disabled husband.
