BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The family of Baton Rouge Firefighter Jacob Lewis is asking the greater Baton Rouge community to take a moment on Friday, February 8 at 2:30 p.m. to pray for Jacob.

"Jacob disappeared in Belle River at approximately 2:30 pm ten days ago," said Jennifer Lewis, Jacobs's wife.  "We are still searching for him and we believe if the community will join together in a brief moment of prayer we will find him."

Also, Baton Rouge Firefighter Local 557 will be selling jambalaya and gumbo at the Spanish Town Parade on Saturday in front of the Bogan Fire Museum at 427 Laurel Street with all proceeds going to help the Lewis family.

Jacob Lewis, 28, fell into Belle River on Wednesday, January 30.  Search parties continue to try to locate Lewis but have been unsuccessful as of this time.

"We are so thankful for all of the outpouring of support and prayers for Jacob and our family, "said Paul Lewis, Jacob's father.  "We need everyone to keep it up so we can find Jacob."
