All and all my nephew was located and this is new to our family… I only can Hope that the Creator and our medicines can help him with his future … He is a bright boy … He needs his family to get though this… only the creator can help him and with prayers.

    Wow this is the first time on this site….which I think is a great idea but all the arguing and people commenting in the amount of time a person should be missing before we start looking….if it was you loved one I’m sure you wouldn’t want to be waiting for 24-48 hrs before anyone cared…..with that being said keep up the good work SHOUTOUT SUDBURY!

  3. I thought it needed to be at least 24h until someone is declared missing? Special needs or not.

    Glad he’s home safe.

  4. Whatever happened to a whole 48 hour rule before a person is actually missing. So many missing people cause people get paranoid so easily. Regardless…..I hope this person is found safe.

  5. Sean jr is 17yrs old

  6. Might be able to see the picture of the person if your obnoxious graphic didn’t take up 90% of the header.

    • Do you realize you’re the first person to ever complain about a missing persons post that I’ve made on here, Shoutout Edmonton and Edmonton Talks News? Over a million people have come by my missing persons posts. Not one person has bitched about the size of the text used. Congrats on being one in a million, but your attitude is in the wrong place.

      I made sure to make the photo very clear, as I realize it is the most important. Also, full image available via the link. I make the text massive because missing persons are important to me and I feel that it grabs your attention exceptionally well when scrolling through your Fb & Twitter feeds.

      DA, keep it up and I won’t hesitate to ban you.

    • Holy shit someone is touchy. Aren’t you the guy who asks for constructive criticism? Also keep what up? It’s the first comment I’ve made in a long time. Fuck this page has gone to shit.

    • You should learn the definition of constructive criticism. Pretty sure this photo is available under other sources of it means that much to you. And I could see it fine.

    • Jesse Landry says:

      Shoutout Sudbury Holy Admin roid rage.. how dare he critisize your work.. am i right? Flex those Admin muscles!

    • It’s all about the ego of the Admin Jesse. It’s quite apparent that he’s full of himself.

    • lol I’m out of the loop.

    • Tony Martin says:

      Well, D.A, here’s the thing….when you’ve created an anonymous alias for the express purpose of trolling, no one really cares 😉

    • Wow Freud, you really got into my head…

    • DA, your attitude has stunk since day one. I wouldn’t have replied in the same way if it were someone else saying this. Just an FYI.

    • Actually I agree Shoutout, I think it’s more about how it was said than anything. You work hard to bring awareness to the public about this missing boy and your work was criticized rudely and harshly. I know you guys are pretty chill and if it came across more constructive rather than jerky, you guys would have been like thanks man! DA, it was kinda mean…just saying

    • Tony Martin says:

      Devils Advocate ….got into your head? Difficult, that….such a small space 😉 😀 😀
