Moment of Silence and Prayers of Hope Please

A little boy that lives near us went missing this evening.

He is 7 years old.

He plays where my children play.
And today they all played together, like many days.

He was in my daycare class two years ago.
He is a sweet, friendly, neglected child.
You know the kind.

He is Lost. Or worse, but our thoughts do not want to go there just yet..
Darkness is falling...
We must find him and bring him home.

Please, please, say a Prayer, even if you are not a believer in prayer..
Pass this on.

Edited to add: As of yet, this morning,3/30 we do not know more. Rescue people and search parties combed the complex all evening, and as of last night, when I asked a neighbor if she had heard anything, he had not yet been located.

painted maypole - so true. i am in shock, that it is so near to us. you always assume that it can't happen to your kids or anyone's kids you know, but this proves just how close this kind of danger really really is. my kids were terrified for their friend last night and today. just not knowing puts us all in a state of unrest. we keep trying to remember if we saw anyone strange hanging around, but in this kind of community so many people come and go, it is almost impossible to tell. but, if there can be a positive side, for my children, it drives home every lesson i have tried to instill in them about safety, boundaries and strangers. as of now, we still do not know. the crucial 24-hour period is almost passed by. keep the prayers...
