I can only imagine what this family must be going through. I pray that Jesus will keep His hand of protection on this young man, and bring him safely home.

How horrable for this family. I would be going nuts if my child was missing. It's my worst nightmare. I hope that he is fine, and that he'll go home or call his parents.

I hope the following link will lead you all to the original story in the Richmond newspaper.

Much more complex than today's story.

Comments on a forum run by the Palladium-Item include posts that say the boy had a difficult home life, and that his best friend died a few days earlier. One post says the friend "committed suicide."

Those who are critical of this boy's home life, his parents, all that...it MIGHT explain his disappearance, but it doesn't help find him. That's what's most important at this time.

people who make such bad comments are very sick and uncaring. and the parents are looking for the teenager.
I hope they find him soon.
prayers go out to the family.

If everyone would look at the original story, see link, they would understand this young mans loss and how hard it has been for him. Young men often withdraw and go off trying to find some type of answer..I hope he gets back home and gets some help. His family needs and misses him. Everyone needs to put out prayers and not ridicule for facts they don't have.

Why wouldn't Indystar.com take the time and the space to post the picture with this story?! If it were my child I'd be very angry.

Chad Southard you need to get your self back home. You have no idea of the danger a young man your age faces in this cold cruel world today. Life at home could never be as hard as what you could get your self into out there. I am hoping that your are just hiding out at a friends house like boys do sometimes
until they feel better then they go home. But if you need help there is help out there for you turn your self in to the Wayne County Police Department and let them get you some help.

An updated article says a body has been found and they suspect it is the missing teen but the article does not say where the body was found or who found it. Does anyone know anything?

Oh please if there is a missing teen...the police have a picture. Indystar is notorious for not posting a picture that can be seen on the local news. They do it all the time which makes a missing person story useless.

To the parents and friends of this young man, I am sorry for your loss. I had hoped the ending to this story would turn out very differently.

He was found by searchers on Saturday at Martindale State Fishing Area in Jacksonburg not far from his home. No positive ID yet, they are checking dental records today. Evidently his body had been there for some time, he was missing 10 days. I am sure his obit will be in tomorrow's paper for those who are interested www.pal-item.com . Thank you for your support.
