ARTICLE UPDATE: This was just posted to the group:
This is excellent news!!! Hope he is OK.
I wanted to make sure the community knew that there is a Search Party happening today to locate Jason Mabee. Here is information via Facebook Event:
We’re asking people (adults only) who are able & willing to come out and participate in an all day coordinated search for Jason. We will have one central location and as people arrive, we will be directed into groups to try and canvas local areas where he might be found.
Please come any time and stay as long as you can. Coordinators will be collecting numbers and information to keep everyone connected and safe.
We will need volunteers and supplies. If you are available to search, coordinate or simply able to join and share this event with your networks, it would mean the world. Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, love and support.
Address/Parking: 9210 MD 108, Columbia, MD in the parking lot of the building under renovation
Sunrise – Sunset, by foot & by car
After Sunset, by car ONLY
Gear: Please dress for the weather if you will be on foot. If you’re willing to search wooded areas, please bring sunscreen and bug repellent.
Again, no children, please.
I made it out to the address and had a chance to chat with a few people about the effort happening today.
There were a number of volunteers showing up to search/canvas coming and going while I was onsite. Some coming for the first time and some returning from earlier canvasing. Some of those returning were coming back looking for directions to the next area to canvas.
The Check In location is expected to stay open until 8 or 8:30pm.
There is a good Google Map showing the areas that this group is focusing on: https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1hMCMkvpldurfH8Ws2lxwseH6Mrjt36Kg&ll=39.281641269413484%2C-76.72546590000002&z=11&fbclid=IwAR1qQkyszktekrHurT-CXLXnEyB6Uy7HXkYFasL8tMn7i3h5IoAXVyDvx9w
They thought that there has been 60 to 70 people check in to help…and I have seen online a mention of using a drone to help with the search.
There is still time to help out today. Go out and check in at the address listed above and the team will get you sent to an area that needs coverage today.
There is a Facebook Group that you might want to join to keep updated with information: https://www.facebook.com/groups/findingjasonmabee/
I pray that Jason is found soon.
