Someone out searching for Brythen found his body this morning. He was in a field we had searched but in the middle where the long grass hid him. I think he must have jumped into the field after a deer and had a heart attack almost immediately.
At least I know. I've been out searching basically since Sunday and so have huge numbers of other people who all turned out to help. People came from all around and drove up from Plymouth to help search and his poster was shared all over the country in case someone had stolen him. I just wish, I wish they had found him alive.
I'm trying to tell myself that it is better to know, and better to go quickly. I should have done better keeping him safe.
