Dozens of friends and family members gathered at the crash site that killed 2-year-old DJ Morris for a ballon release in his honor Thursday night. 

His mother, Ocie Mills wanted to go to Fontenelle and Curtis Avenue, where a memorial for Morris now stands to say a final good-bye. 

Over 50 balloons were released a little after 5:30 p.m. So many people attended, two Omaha Police officers showed up to ensure people weren't off the sidewalk and onto the street causing another tragedy. 

Some people wrote hand-written messages to DJ on the balloons while others delivered gifts to this memorial. 

OPD is still searching for Davionne Collier , the man suspected of driving the SUV that slammed into the car that DJ was riding in.
