    They have video that shows Jake leaving his house at the time the parents reported.

    Oh no. I hate to say it, but it could be him, especially since no one has seen or heard from him since he went missing. The said the body was badly decomposed and that they can't tell if a crime was committed or if it was an accident. Rest in peace, whoever the poor person may be.

    Here's a map from La Porte City to Keokuk: Google Maps

    IMO, it's too far away to the location (160 miles) and too far south on the Mississippi for this to be likely to be Jake.

    Oh no, I hope it's not Jake as well. Rest the soul of the poor person who was found in such bad state.

    KBUR out of Burlington is reporting it's a missing Burlington man. The link on their page isn't working though for me to link it.

    Probably absolutely no relevance, but kind of freaky that Davenport's tentative release date from prison was 4/6/18.

    I just saw Jake's case come up on my FB. So sad that so much time had passed.

    I saw some comments on FB that gave me a little hope for Jake. But, I think the reality is that this will not end well :(

    It’s weird. They must at this point truly believed be drowned. In the beginning they seemed interested in individuals who participated in hat biking event. I assume they got a full roster and interviewed anyone they felt was pertinent to the case. When that was done and they had no leads maybe they felt the water was the only actual option?

    Nearly 2 months later, no sign of missing Iowa teen

    La Porte City police say large equipment broke up log jams on Wolf Creek, but they haven't found Jake Wilson. An Iowa National Guard helicopter is also working with local authorities in the search for Wilson.

    “I think so many people in town now, they still let their kids run around just like before. But some of them are more cautious now," Neiswonger said. "We don’t want Jake to be a reason. It’s a great community. We don’t feel threatened at all." Mother of missing La Porte City teen Jake Wilson: 'We still have hope' This is just strange to me?
