I find it very interesting that we're hearing about this now. Why was it posted so late? Is it because he's Hispanic?

Does everything always have to be race related. The East Haven Patch is not an Amber Alert System. The editor, I am sure, is getting the news out just as quickly as discovered in an attempt to help find this young man. There are other news sources available on a daily basis. Why have you not heard elsewhere?

I hope Jonathon is found safe and sound.

Cheri: Thank you for sharing the update from the EHPD Facebook page. I just saw it myself a short time ago there and I've updated this post — and I'll be sharing on our Facebook and Twitter pages as well.
