    My fault for not posting yesterday, I had spoken to Believe09 yesterday to contact the ME. She has a lot of experience with it; knows what to say & how to say it. The last thing we want is 100 people calling the LE & ME then Jay/Jason's family can not get through. She is more then happy to do it.

    If any of the original sources of these photographs can contact the Medical Examiners Office in Virginia at (757) 683-8366 or NCMEC through the HELP ID ME Facebook Page or Call Center 1-800-THE-LOST it would be greatly appreciated. We would like to help.

    The ME investigator needs the information including the possible last name and possible maternal relatives asap as well. As Wondergirl indicated, the ME's office is aware of what has been posted here. This is imperative at this point.

I'm thinking about asking IT to give me clearance on WS to use it on my lunch break on my computer

    On to the thread; I was hoping that I would be able to consistently edit my original post, but with your answers, it doesn't look like I am able to.

    The next best thing is just ensuring that everybody read through this read to know what others are doing before they do it. That makes it clear that we don't double up, and start accidently contacting the same agencies more than once a day or so.

    Does anybody else have an idea for how we can organise this? Would love to hear suggestions, my brain is almost totally fried so I'm not as good with suggesting fixes as I usually am! (which isn't very good anyway .

    Will be replying to all other threads or so in the next few hours.

    Love to all.
    One option for the editing after edit period: Bump/Quote your own post. Place your edits into the quoted material and then outside the second or ending [/QUOTE] box type UPDATED! (AND THEN THE TIME AND DATE OF YOUR UPDATE/EDIT INFO) This will cause a new post to land at the current end of the thread with the most updated info.

    News update:
    I spoke with WBDE Channel 15 in MB, SC again and made it clear that I'm not someone to interview about the story. They don't want to interview any of us anyway.

    They're putting together something for the news and want to help get him identified. I was asked not to share this reporter's direct contact info online, but if there are any verified sources ie police, NCMEC or the ME that are willing to talk to the reporter, PM me your contact info and I can call and relay the message. (I'm not trying to hoarde information, this is what the reporter requested.)

    I told them to call NCMEC.

    I also contacted ABC7 in DC but haven't heard back.

    Thanks for the wonderful update mummy! Glad to hear that the media over there have jumped on this case! Would you be able to keep us updated, and possible, where those not in the US could find the links to these stories when they show?

    My personal facebook page (I live in Myrtle beach and a lot of my friends on fb were born and raised here)

    WPDE News Channel 15 is supposedly working on a story.. waiting to hear an update from my friend who works there

    Contacted person who is over yearbooks at Horry County Schools (got her contact info from Saint James Middle school). She doesn't have any from that time period. She has "1 or 2 older yearbooks" but can't let them go. She asked what I needed them for. I explained the case to her and sent link to imgur post to help explain. Haven't heard anything back.

    I plan to hit the libraries this Saturday to see if I can find any yearbooks there.
    Update: I just got this email from Horry County Schools in follow-up to my request for yearbooks:

    "Ms. , I was informed by St. James Middle School Staff of you wanting yearbook photos from the school in reference to a trying to identify a person. I have informed the school they should decline any photos request. Any information regarding a missing person case should be directed to the Horry County Police Department. They can be contacted at 915-5350. Thank you Ofc. Cruz "

    So unfortunately, looks like they are unwilling to help... Horry County Police has already been contacted though, correct? Does anybody know the answer to that?

    I asked my friend at WPDE if she had an update for me. This was her response: "I haven't heard anything. I passed it along. I will check on it. I actually believe it's something to take up with the coroner's office."

    This is the reply I just got from WBTW:

    "Thanks! I'm going to look into it. The problem is, he was found in Virginia. The law enforcement here doesn't know much about the case. I'll see what I can do! Thanks for sending me the info"

    I work in a school and am not surprised that they declined the yearbook photo request. In my school, I think the answer would be the same.
