UPDATE: On Sunday, March 8th the Search and Rescue teams found Cayman (deceased) and there was a memorial service for him on Saturday, March 14th. Please take a moment to watch this little video clip from Cay’s wonderful memorial service and share it with friends or family who may have children or teenagers, it is very important:
I am planning on writing another blog post about him and the importance of not going through “it” alone… once I can get all of what I want to talk about organized and written down so it makes sense.
Thank you again to everyone who helps share his information and image around the web or kept our family in your thoughts and prayers.
Okay, I am going to cut straight to it. Cayman is missing and we need to get as many eyes out there looking for him as possible. That’s what social media is for, right? Being social and spreading the news faster than the speed of light.
Here’s the official police statement

This is serious, and this (if you can image it) is my serious face. I know I don’t ask much of you guys and I know that most of you all will probably be sick and tired of all my spamming – but this is very important. He is family. He is very much loved and all we want is for him to come home. ((Cay if you are reading this, please contact someone. You are not in trouble. All we want is for you to come home safe. You are much loved!))
He did not leave with his phone or wallet and his parents do not know if he has any cash on him. He may have taken a train to Philly, but the last time he was seen was walking west on Church Rd between South Valley Forge Rd and Waterloo in Newtown Square, PA at 6:45pm on Wednesday evening (3/4/15)
He was last seen wearing a dark grey winter ski jacket (see photo below), black ski pants, and hiking boots. He has brown hair and brown eyes. He is 5’7” and weighs 110lbs. If you or someone you know has seen him or may know where he is – please don’t hesitate to call Detective William Moor with the Newton Square PD at (610)-356-0602.
And for all of you people annoyed with my continual sharing of his image and updates, tough cookies. If he was your friend or family member – would you do all that you could to help? I do not care if I lose followers over this. Until he is found – I will not be posting anything but #findCayman posts – no makeup because right now, makeup is not important. I would greatly appreciate any share or mention or tweet you could spare.
Thank you all so much for your support, thoughts, and prayers. They will not be forgotten.
