Meanwhile, family members from Boise spent several days distributing missing posters for Erik Jorgensen. A facebook page was set up for the missing army combat Veteran who according to information on the web, was in the reserves.

A post to the page said:
“It is with the greatest sadness of our life to have to share that our sweet boy spread his wings and flew to God's protective arms where the sun always shines and there is no pain. God keep my baby protected until we meet again.

God bless all our soldiers who give so much and ask for nothing in return. Save them all from the pain of war and bring them home to their families

Good night my angel I'll see you soon,
