Me and Walderson grew up hanging out and swimming Lake Catherine almost daily. He must of hit his head on something, cause that boy was quite the swimmer.

I spoke with George this morning, he's on his way to help search, just like he did for Caylee.

Like one of the other "bloggers" had mentioned, these kids are born on de Island swimming.

Guns don't kill people... CANOES kill people!

Background checks and a 5 day waiting period to purchase a canoe!

I understand a 1 person kayak for transportation or recreational purposes, but a multi-person canoe is overkill!

The combined energy of original Uranus and the intuitive Moon could present deep inspiration to you; your imagination may be running absolutely wild. One of the best uses for this energy would be in the bedroom with your most significant other, but if that isn't possible, you can gain an edge in your creative endeavors. Whether you are hanging from a chandelier or becoming the next Picasso, this is a day of intense, inner expression.

Mike,

George is in California, and I'm sure Dennis Milstead is bass fishing (with the extreme search and rescue boat.)

canoes normally swamp but do not sink. Was this really a canoe?

Ha ha, so true, George fooled me saying he was on HopeSpring; those darned cell phones, can't believe anything.
As for Milstead, well he's a jerk and thief, he'd never help w/ that TOY boat!

dammmmmm, im still in denial.. half a month ago in April I was talkin to Uncle Wellington, Waldo's father and I saw all of his kids together. It is so hard to actually pass through all of this and feeling like you cant do anything. Que dios tenga Walderson en su Santa Gloria. He was gonna be big, I still have his picture when we first met... dammmmm

i just would like to say, that is my best friend that some how is gone, and the other 2 is also my friends. but i just would like to say that i was out there and the police that was on the airboat did not have any divers looking for him. if they had interest in finding someone that needs the help, the would. and we need the help, if by any chance they dont try to help, we will be the ones to jump in and see if we find him, even if means loosing our life for him, but i know i would.

he grew up in dominican republic, that's why they mentioned 'island'..i still can't believe all of this stuff is happening. waldo was such a good kid ..he really didn't deserve this! always dacing, and singing -trying to make people smile. i don't think the police is doing their best ..i mean if i was them, i would drain the lake. is a pretty big lake and they're just looking in one spot; with two little boats! like -it makes no sence. plus they need to look around all the plants and stuff. all of his friends tried to look for him in there and some people even end up in the water. his mom and his sister are devastated ..it's horrible; plus the twins think it's their fault that this happened, even if is not. i know waldo still alive, people just got to be more faithful. i love you and miss you waldo</3
