I think that it is sad that Lakeland Baseball players get more air and news paper time then a missing 16 year old young man. This is so sad that the world cares more about kids making out then someone child missing. People need to focus on the finding this young man. This is a very hard and sad time for Marco's family.

If it was the child of a law enforcement officer, they would have everyone from the President and Congress on it, but unfortunately unless you are rich and or famous it doesn't matter if you disappear.

I pray this child is found safe.
