I never stopped looking for it
The young man’s mother told CBS: “We searched all over California. We are just grateful that he is safe and alive and that we found our son. This is the most important thing for us. »
“I never stopped looking for him. There hasn’t been a day that I haven’t sought it out, in some form or another,” she said.
