Oh dear. I hate hearing stuff like that. Makes me feel like it could be my kids. I hope they find him, safe and sound.

Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear this. Fingers crossed he'll be found safe and sound!

08-15-2007, 10:14 PM
I can't even imagine what his family and friends are going through right now. I hope and pray he is found and returned to his family unharmed.

Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

How horribly worrying. If my good thoughts will do any good, you have them. I hope all the locals are on alert for the poor boy.

Oh my! A mother's worst nightmare - a missing child. I hope he is found soon. Please let us know. Prayers for him and family.

Thoughts and prayers being sent their way.

08-16-2007, 04:34 AM
This will be in my thoughts and prayers. Please keep us posted.

08-16-2007, 04:51 AM
Thanks! Right now there's no news yet, but they're hoping it's not foul play but just a case of runaway teens... still, I can't imagine what's going through his family's and my friend's minds.

08-16-2007, 05:00 AM
oh, Ray. I hope it's a case of, 'I have to get my head straight', and not something else.
Prayers offered up. :Hug2:

08-16-2007, 05:06 AM
It was scary to look at this boy and realize that he is my age.

I'll keep you in my prayers.

I'll keep him in my prayers. This is definately one of my worst nightmares. I can't imagine what that family is going through.

*praying* Hope you have good news soon.

Any news yet?

08-19-2007, 07:56 AM
I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, too, Maestro. I'm hoping for a safe return.

08-19-2007, 08:08 AM
adding my prayers and thoughts to the boy, his family and friends.

08-19-2007, 08:40 AM
Here's my heart joining in as well. I know it so well, that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach. My boy ran away for 3 days when he was 13. The worst three days of my life!
May his family know the joy of reunion very very soon.

08-19-2007, 10:01 PM
Prayers that he'll be aok and found very shortly, Ray.

08-23-2007, 07:18 PM
Thank you for all the good thoughts and wishes.

Unfortunately, it did end in tragedy. I don't have all the details yet, and the police reports will be out soon, but it looks like there has been a murder-suicide. Kim is with her family now -- needless to say, it is devastating for everyone. Sometimes you just wish the world is a better place so these things don't happen.

Again, thanks everyone. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

08-23-2007, 07:34 PM
Oh Ray! My heart just goes out to them. That is just terrible if it is true.

08-23-2007, 07:35 PM
My deepest wishes go out to finding him safe and sound.

Oh, Ray - I'm so sorry. Please accept my condolences to you and the boy's family.

08-23-2007, 07:44 PM
I'm still trying to process this...

There's no official report yet. Still waiting on the coroner. So everyone is just sitting tight and still hoping for the best... but just too many coincidences as this point...

08-23-2007, 08:45 PM
:( So very sorry.

08-23-2007, 08:46 PM
My deepest condolences. I don't know what else to say ...

08-25-2007, 12:31 PM
My prayers are with his family & friends. How horrible, Ray.

OMG...I hate the way they worded that. Sounds so wannabe CSI. I mean, his family members are going to read that article.
