We received the following message that the families of Chris, Patrick & Wes, the missing crew in Guyana, have asked us to share with all the volunteers who are participating in our search mission to find their "boys."
To: all volunteers helping to search for Patrick, Wesley and Chris
From: the Families of the missing men
As many of you may be already be thinking, this crisis is unimaginable. To add to the devastation of such an occurrence, these are three young men who were just beginning to live their lives. Words cannot express how incredibly grateful we are for the time you are willingly volunteering to assist in this search for our sons and husband-to-be (Chris was to be married Dec. 27th). We realize that this work is tedious and without compensation, but your work is primarily the only investigating, at this point, that can initiate the ground searches directly. Since November 1st we have suffered many ups and downs with regards to the search for our men. Your volunteer work continues to corroborate that no one has given up on finding them and gives us immeasurable comfort and strength.
May God bless you and your families as you continue to support the search for our boys and may you share in our joy of finally bringing these boys home to us.
