Today family and friends of 34-year-old Christopher MacCallum held a memorial service remembering his life.

He's the Medford man police believe was murdered almost two weeks ago near the Oregon-California border.

And while his loved ones say they know he is a better place, they still need closure.

"Help find Chris, anything that would help police, anything to help us to find out what happened to this wonderful person."

A cry for help.

The mother of Christopher MacCallum pleads at her sons memorial service, all she wants is closure.

His father also seeking answers.

"If you know anything, come forward. It's time for confession and for tone now, and to put closure on what happened."

Authorities say MacCallum's body was found with gunshot wounds at the bottom of a roughly 75-foot steep drop-off deep in the Applegate recreation area near the Oregon-California border almost two weeks ago.

But today, loved ones wanted to focus less on his death and more on his life. The good times they had with the man they say was everyone's best friend.

"I feel like Chris was always an amazing person and I feel he had a very incredible mind. He was very strong, energetic, hardworking..."

MacCallum's wife and two young children also attended the service.

Eight year old Eric wanted everyone to make sure they remembered his dad.

"I just want him to know he's a really great man, and I want him to come back."

A family aching after their loss, looking for answers, and hoping for closure to come soon.

MacCallum worked for FTD in Medford, and was also a driver for checker cab. Authorities are still investigating the case and anyone with information is asked to contact the Siskiyou County Sheriff's Office at 530-841-2900.
