@ Friend

Search has not been called off. Family and COE have been walking shorelines daily. COE and DNR continue to do boat patrol of the shoreline daily. They are no longer diving, as they have searched all areas where he disappeared. Everyone is praying for a rescue. If you have the time, feel free to go walk the shorelines, hike the trails. I am sure it would be appreciated.

There are no updates on the news, because there is nothing new to report at this time. Everyone just needs to pray for the family and friends as they deal with this tragedy.

Maranda & family, We are all devastated by these events. We are praying for you to accept love and wisdom. Ali loves you guys so much, and I know how much you and Mitch love each other. We all feel helpless. I want to give you a hug and protect you somehow. Please know Marand that you and Mitch that we are praying constantly and you are on every prayer chain I know about. We love you and are so happy that you and Mitch came into Ali.s life and because of that - ours.
Love beauty experience. Love you, prayers

That's not a very "Christ" like thing to say. You need a new username. Try douchebag.

Christ, if you are so certain of your facts, post using your full name and the names of your sources.

So called "Christ" you obviously don't know this family. The wife is the most genuine person I know. I've known her for years..... Your imaginary friends and voices in your head do not count as viable "sources". Please keep your negitivty to yourself and let the rest of us grieve and share love for the family. Even if you have something against the family, we are to "love our enemies". So please mind your own and mind your own business. To Maranda.... Not a day goes by that we haven't thought about you. Your in ALL our prayers. Your such a strong inspiring woman and we all have looked up to you for your amazing qualities. Hang in there, lean in God and he will enable you to endure. We love you so much!

@Christ....fyi...your posts were removed by the site God and he said..."go back to hell" Noticed you moved from one town to another in hopes of being able to spread your filth. We will try to overlook your 15 year old mentality and blame a serious drug problem or the fact you were probably molested as a teen, liked it, and became a person who harbors great hatred for the human race. Your sources don't count your multiple personalities and you obviously don't know much or you wouldn't be so vague. I would be surprised if you could even tell me Mitch or Maranda's occupations let alone have information about murder or insurance scam's. Quit fantasizing and find something more productive to do with your energies.

Hopefully neither Mitch nor Maranda ever look at these posts but if they do may they know that most people aren't that judgmental.

Come search, anyone can boat or walk that area, no restrictions, people are skiing, fishing ,and pleasure boating in that area. If he is indeed in the water , down where it is cold it could be up 4 to 7 days plus to surface if temp were 60. The outflow temp at dam is 54 degree , at 50 degree uncertain....

Spoke with Maranda and she is back home now. Nothing to update.

I imagine they can't officially declare him deceased yet seeing as they have no body. I've not heard of plans for a memorial service yet.

I NEVER COMMENT ON THIS SORT OF THING AND AM ONLY SAYING THIS BECAUSE I KNEW THE VICTIM AND THE FAMLY AND WAS TOLD ABOUT ALL THIS UGLINESS ON THIS GOSSIP SITE
. PLEASE UNDERSTAND ALL FRIENDS AND FAMILY FROM OHIO THAT THE FOLKS MAKING THESE ACCUSATIONS ...DID NOT KNOW MITCH AND HIS KIND SPIRIT. THEY DID NOT KNOW TONY HIS FATHER N LAW WHO DROWN BY ACCIDENT ON THE SAME LAKE.
IF THEY DID KNOW EITHER OF THESE MEN THEY WOULD BE AS SAD AND DEVASTATED AS THE WHOLE BOATING COMMUNITY IS HERE. EVERYDAY THE SEARCH CONTINUES AND WE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR HEALING FOR SUCH A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY THAT HAS ENDURED SUCH A TRAGIC LOSS. AND TO THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE SPREADING ALL THESE UNTRUTHS AND SAYING TERRIBLE THINGS. I PRAY EVEN HARDER FOR YOU. I HOPE AND PRAY THAT YOU DO NOT EVER HAVE TO SUFFER THE UNBEARABLE LOSS THAT I HAVE SEEN THIS YOUNG MANS PARENTS, WIFE, MOTHER N LAW AND OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS SUFFER OVER THIS PAST WEEK. GOD IS GOOD AND I PRAY HE WILL BRING MITCH HOME TO HIS FAMILY. I COUNT IT A GREAT BLESSING TO HAVE HAD THE HONOR TO HAVE KNOWN BOTH MITCHELL AND TONY. THE WORLD IS A LITTLE LESS BECAUSE THEY ARE NO LONGER IN IT.

Dear Sad Friend in Summersville,
What you state is so true although I don't look at this as a gossip site but a news and information forum. I have known Maranda since she was a toddler and love her, Mitch, and Cindy very much. Some of us in Ohio actually have used this site just to gain information as we've sat here for more than a week with no news coming our way, feeling hopeless, and just as devastated as you are there. Please know that there really has only been one really ignorant person and the rest of the people here may wonder and question but really haven't been overly negative. In fact, many here have been very supportive.
Please keep us updated on the continuing coverage in Summersville. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you Lora, Nicholas Co mother, and the rest of the Summersville community and the surrounding area. Thank you for what you have done, your continued prayers and well wishes. I have no doubt that you feel as we do as Mitch was able to leave that kind of impression on people.

I know he and his wife spoke very fondly of the Summersville Lake community and boaters and they loved every minute of their time their.

Thank you for continuing to search and keep your eyes and ears open for us. The news coverage is non-existent and we truly do appreciate it.

The bad seed on this forum is not a reflection of you but of their own soul. Location has nothing to do with it.

This has really bothered my kids to the point where they no longer want to swim in the lake. They ask everyday if they have found the young man. My oldest son told me he thought it was disrespectful for him to go have fun in the lake while a family is grieving over the missing man and his whereabouts. We pray everyday the man is found so everyone can have closure. Prayers for the family and friends.

I stayed away from the comments here because know how cruel people can be. Today, about an hour ago, for my own reasons I finally read them all. Shame on those who use a tragedy to lash out and hurt good people. And for those of you who know and love this family, my heart is with you all.
I live in SC and I met Mitch and Maranda about a year ago. I was lucky enough to have visited with them on 3 separate occasions.
They have a beautiful love. For each other and their friends and family and their community. They are precious people...Young enough to be my children...but old enough to call them friend. I will continue to pray for Maranda and all of Mitch's family in the days and months ahead.
And I will go back to Ohio and pay my respects to a wonderful guy very soon. I will always remember him with smiles and love.
