    So many things went wrong with the search. I understand people being mad and wanting to place blame. The fact is he was dead before anyone even knew he was missing. nothing will ever change that.

    The only good from this is; his story will probably save other lives. I know we had a talk with 2 of our grandkids yesterday about the dangers of climbing into small spaces. I feel a lot of parents and grandparents have also done this in the few days.

    "He was dead before anyone knew he was missing"
    Is that a fact? Do we have an estimated time of death?

    I am very active in my local Salvation Army chapter. When I read that he rang the bell every Christmas, my throat got a lump in it. And the fact that he wanted to be a counselor...:*(

    He was dead when his parents finally reported him missing.

    Dear Chief Hickman,

    It has been brought to my attention that a petition is circulating on social media by Roxy Fisher who claims to be an employee of Texas Equusearch according to her face book employment status.

    This is a misrepresentation.

    Ms Fisher is not nor has ever been an employee of Texas Equusearch.

    I, Tim Miller, the director and founder of Texas Equusearch and the Organization have not and don’t not support this petition.

    Myself as Director and our Organization give our full support to the Dilly Family, the Community of Port Clinton and the Police Dept. of Port Clinton, Ohio through this long and painful grieving process.

    Blessed are the Peacemakers...

    If only there were more of them.

    Sincerely,
    Tim Miller

    Port Clinton Police Department

    I just can’t understand why they didn’t notice the lockbox before, during their multiple searches.

    Why did they wait to report him missing for two days?
    Did they think he was going to stay with a friend? No cell phone contact to see if he arrived there safely?

    If it was dark and he went up the antennae willing with a friend then the friend dared, or threw his glasses and jacket down the chimney he bent over to grab them and the bully shoved him headfirst. That's one way. Or he slipped and fell headfirst.
