While police wouldn't say at the time, it appears as though they were preventing gawkers from getting too close.

Please explain why the road was closed. Is there "stuff" on the road? Why is it closed?

I hope and pray that they find him alive and well. Hope he is just hiding because he is scared of what may happen to him. Call your mom dude, she needs to know you are ok. Come out of hiding. Your family will stand behind you no matter what, they love and miss you.

Mike I was thinking the same thing but one can always hope, and my hopes were real high for him. But now that they think they have found him, at least his family can have some sort of closure to this tragidy

It's sad to say, but I can't imagine that he's hiding at this point.

Looked like a sad situation as a blue tarp was being pulled out of a retention pond.
