On day 15 (missing) we got the call saying the accident scene had been located. While sitting on the side of the road with CUE while the officers on site tried to locate the car, an officer approached Monica and said "We never would have looked there, we never would have found them"
I have so much respect for that officer, and I tell any officer I can the story. Law enforcement has so much on their plate, they are stretched so thin and their resources are limited. It is refreshing to know that law enforcement is able to acknowledge that they can use help.
The Florida crew that was searching that day was on day 7 and scheduled to head home. They would not leave the area until they had completed the areas they wanted to cover. Then when the accident was discovered they stayed by our side offering comfort and support.
Many CUE members attended the funeral services for our son and continue to offer support and encouragement. We owe them, as well as many friends, family and strangers a great deal. I only hope we can do our son justice by paying the kindness forward.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
take more opportunities for press. Although I understand the need for discretion during a search, I don't believe Monica takes enough advantage of the good they do. She's not one for tooting her own horn! So many of us owe CUE so much we'll do the "tooting" for her.
