JEMEZ SPRINGS, N.M. (AP) - A candlelight vigil in honor of a firefighter who was missing for a week before his body was found in a rugged area of northern New Mexico is planned for Sunday evening.
    
Officials with the U.S. Forest Service say the vigil for 41-year-old Token Adams of Jemez Springs is being hosted in the mountain community by local churches.
    
Adams disappeared Aug. 30 while checking a report of smoke.

Investigators say it appears he crashed his ATV in a remote area.

His body was found Friday.
    
Hundreds of volunteers, firefighters, search and rescue teams and the Civil Air Patrol had spent the past week been combing some 50 square miles of mesa tops and steep canyons east of Jemez Springs for Adams.
    
Adams is survived by his pregnant wife and a young son.
