Jacksonville, Fla. - Family and friends will hold a vigil for Jacoby Clayton, the teenager who drowned Friday afternoon in the St. Marys River.

That vigil will be held at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Jonesville Park in Sanderson. The public is invited to attend.

Deputies say Clayton jumped off a rope swing into the river at Shoals Park in Glen St. Mary and didn't resurface. Divers found Clayton's body about about 30 minutes later.

Clayton's friends tried to rescue him, but were unsuccessful.
