Christopher's chapstick has been located on the road near the place where he was last seen. It was not far from the river access. Praying that Christopher is located today! Such a handsome young fella. Praying also for his family.

Christopher Marks search suspended

[snip]

The search was suspended Monday night, but Lt. James Mundel says the search will resume Tuesday morning at 8 a.m.

Mundel says this is still a search and not a recovery effort, and they are hopeful he will be found.

He says searchers will backtrack and sidetrack where they searched Monday.

Every possibility is being investigated, but at this time police do not believe there was foul play.

Police: No Clues in Missing Christopher Marks Case; Drowning Possible

After 42 hours of searching underwater and along rough terrain without any clues, police say they think the disappearance of Christopher Marks, the 12-year-old Affton boy who went missing Sunday night, may be "nothing more sinister than a sad tragic drowning."

RIP Christopher, this is such a tragedy.

The Meramec is a very deceptive and dangerous river. It has sudden drop-offs in depth and is full of dangerous swift undercurrents, whirlpools, etc. Its full of underwater springs and caves that make the current very tricky. You don't realize you're in trouble until its too late to get out.

I think it was last year that 5 boys drowned on a church outing, just a few miles from that spot. Two boys were wading and got into trouble. Other kids and adults went in to get them and three of them drowned as well.

So sad another young boy is lost. If you're ever visiting that river, don't swim in it.

Christopher Marks’ Step-dad Charged In Drowning Death

http://fox2now.com/2012/09/26/christ...rowning-death/

Quote:
Criminal charges in the case of the 12-year-old boy who drowned in the Meramec. The St. Louis County Prosecutor’s Office charged the step dad with 7 misdemeanor counts of child endangerment. Only on Fox, the victim`s grandmother spoke to KTVI reporter Chris Hayes.

Lisa Miskimon said, “[Todd Combs'] culpability of what went down that day at the Meramec to me is unforgivable.”
Previous article explaining that Combs gave all of the boys alcohol during their "outing" and that Chris had been drinking when he drowned.

http://fox2now.com/2012/08/14/christ...-repeated-dui/

Quote:
During the search for 12-year-old Marks, his sister told reporters about the drinking.

Christopher Marks grandmother says they’ve heard from kids who were with Step-Dad Combs that August 5th weekend, reporting that he bought them Bud Light, Captain Morgan rum and a malt liquor called 4 Loko.
