Today was not a good day- I’m trying my hardest to fight back the tears, keep it together, stay positive, and not blame or vent on anyone, but it’s nearly difficult. And I’m terrified to cry because I’m not sure I’ll be able to control myself. Jacob, if by some way you are still alive and well, please, please allow someone to contact us; we are all falling apart trying to find you!! And if you’re not okay, and the worst happens, please know that your family will not give up until we find you and bring you home.

I will forever be sorry for believing you needed space when I believe you needed us more than any of us will ever know. My heart aches for you, Jacob, and I adore you. VanZant, Robert. AWP will provide further information throughout the live stream. In the next weeks, we will have a complete edit of our search and recovery activities. Thank you for all of your help and support.
