ROCK ISLAND — Friends of David Harker are planning a benefit tonight to raise money for his wife and two children.

The benefit will begin at 6 p.m. at St. Pius Farrell Hall, 2502 29th St., Rock Island. There will be food, music, raffles and a silent auction.

Mr. Harker went missing Sept. 29 and was last seen leaving downtown Moline. His body was found three days later in the Mississippi River near Buffalo. He is survived by his wife, Kadie, and children, Dorothy and Ryan.
