UPDATE: According to National Voice For Children website, John Mashing was "recovered" on or around May 15th. Didn't get that message forwarded to me though. I assume "recovered" means alive, there's not a ton of info out there to ease worried minds, but none the less, recovered!
Well, I got this via email and decided I would post after finding little on a Google search about it, just incase....
Kid, call your parents, no matter what, they deserve to know you are alive.
Confidentially praying for a good conclusion, Mr. Rickey.
