    AL - Jeremiah, 29, & Jacob Sanders, 24, Lauderdale County, 2 March 2016

    Band cancels College Station show as search for missing bass player continues


    Lauderdale County, Alabama -
    A popular cover band that regularly plays in College Station has cancelled its show for Thursday night because the bass player and his brother are missing.

    The Velcro Pygmies were set to play at The Tap, but Jacob Sanders and his brother, Jeremiah, have not been located after the two took a fishing trip in Lauderdale County, Alabama

    Wednesday.

    Early Thursday morning, search teams found the brothers' boat on the Tennessee River, according to CBS affiliate WHNT in Huntsville, Alabama.



    The Velcro Pygmies "leads the crowd on a roller coaster trip through the 80s, with occasional detours into country and R&B," according to the band's website, which adds that the band

    plays some 200 venues each year.

    "Our Jacob Sanders and his brother Jeremiah need all your prayers and positive thoughts while rescue teams search for them in Alabama after their boat was found without them

    aboard," according to a post on the band's Facebook page. "We have a lot of LOVE in this FAMILY and now is the time to make that LOVE known loud and clear that we need these boys

    HOME."

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    I've shared this within our music community, hopefully some are close enough to help with the search.

    Nothing new here. Worsening weather conditions and currents led to a hold on the search for much of Thursday morning, however, crews put boats back into the water in the afternoon.

    Officials said continued strong currents are making it hard for scanners to see under the water.

    Crews suspended the search Thursday evening. They will pick back up Friday morning.

    The Facebook for the band is reporting it is now a recovery effort. The area they are presumably found in is extremely close to the dam and they are trying to coordinate shutting down the dam as the divers go in to recover the brothers. I'm not seeing any MSM on this fact yet. https://m.facebook.com/thevelcropygmies/

    from the link above..."“At about 5pm Friday the K9 Unit signaled on a location in the river where they believe Jacob and Jeremiah to be.

    They are in about 8 feet of water. The recovery mission has become increasingly challenging due to this location’s proximity to the dam. In order for the divers to reach them the TVA has to shut down the turbines in the dam.”...

    It sounds as if they have been found...?

    Unhappy

    Any updates? It's been almost a week since they went missing. How big is the body of water where they were? Do they think the bodies are trapped under water?
