    Wow, they were so close to catching up with him, and then this. How tragic. I'm really curious to learn what went wrong.

    My husband is a pharmacist and I was just talking to him about this medication. They had to take online courses on it since it is very much monitored by Dr's and pharmacists due to these reactions. They can't just refill, the patient needs to seen Dr's regularly and get new refills from them 1st.

    So very sad for this young man. Prayers to his family and friends. Horrible outcome.

    Such a terrible thing, isn't it. He was a bright young man who seemed to have a great future ahead of him. Such a huge loss for any parent.

    @helpfulcharlie From the videos of people hiking the trails there, it's very steep with some bid drop-offs. When he first disappeared into the woods, IIRC, it was at night. He could have fallen in the dark.

    Sincere prayers to this entire family.

    Yep! Accutane (isotretinoin) is very restricted, and despite its serious potential for psychiatric, it’s only Black Box Warning is due to its even higher risk for severe birth defects. In order for someone to be on Accutane they have to be enrolled in iPledge. Females on the medication have to commit to using two forms of birth control and get a negative pregnancy test every month before the pharmacy can fill it. As with every single medication/drug/herbal supplement, it’s important to weigh risks vs. benefits.

    The half-life of isotretinoin is ~16 hours, and we generally think of “the rule of 5” (or it takes 5 half-lives) to reach a steady level or functionally eliminate (this is a very general principle and does not take into account countless other factors). Meaning it’s expected to take ~80 hours for the drug to be primarily eliminated. I suspect he still had the drug in his system if he has been taking it regularly and that it hadn’t been too long since he went missing. However, he was also at the age when psychiatric conditions tend to present themselves, clouding this already complicated picture.

    So many prayers that they will be able to find peace.

    According to a post from his mother's friend on the SNP facebook page, his doctor had recently doubled the dose he was taking. He began to have a bad reaction fairly early, including seizures. Took him to the hospital, he was later released.

    Sounds like this stuff should be taken off the market.

    I have checked our local newspaper for an article and finally today...
    The only new information added is below:

    Officials have said little about the circumstances behind Sauer's disappearance.

    Comer confirmed late Monday that he was from Union Beach.

    Sauer was a member of the track and field team at Keyport High School, according to records from athletic.net.

    Keyport Public Schools posted about his disappearance on Facebook over the weekend.

    Body of Union Beach teen believed to been found in Virginia park

    Condolences to Ty's family and friends

    He was a member of track and field? Oh no, I bet he easily outran everyone. He was young, in top shape and amped up by a bad drug reaction...so he ran fast and just kept going.

    RIP Young Ty.

    My heart really goes out to his family. I am SO sorry this happened to your loved-one.

    I personally think Accutane should stay on the market for cystic acne but it is a serious drug... I am wondering if he was on a half-dose to start with and the doctor simply doubled it recently to the standard dose, and he just had a rare reaction?

    Again sincere condolences to his family and friends.
