CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG TV9)-- Family and friends gathered to remember a man they call Jim Bob.

"There's a million people missing him," Ricky Booher said.

May 31st marks two years since James Booher disappeared.

Family say they've come to believe he's dead. But they say this doesn't make the grieving process any easier.

"As time has gone on it's gotten harder, because we don't know nothing," Jim Bob's sister, Susie Reynolds said.

Although they don't know what happened, the family say there's closure in this memorial, located right next to his dad's grave.

"It's a start... Brings me to tears every time I'm here, just wondering where he is," Ricky Boohler said.

Family members hope to learn more information about their brother's disappearance. Until then, they want to keep his spirit alive.

That's why family say each year, on the anniversary of his disappearance, they will hold a memorial.
