Hi all, a few quick updates while we’re working. Apologies for not having more during the day, as we’re working pretty hard

  • Thank you for all the updates about hiking locations, etc, that may be of interest. Please continue to send that to us
  • If anyone thinks they saw Derek between the hours of 12:01am and 5:00AM at Union Station, Greyhound stops, or other public transportation stops, please let us know
  • We are updating a thorough list of places that have been checked throughout today as people email us.
  • Please DO NOT text Derek if you have his phone number, as we are running data on the phone
  • Any usage of his accounts at this point are us, as we have full account access
  • We do have a last known location but we are still locating a key person for more information. When we do, we will update everyone on this location for witnesses.

I know that’s not much but we will have more updates and photos soon.
