UVALDE, Texas – UPDATE: Family members of Patrick Ojeda, the man who is missing, released the following photo to KSAT 12 News.
Here's what Ojeda's parents had to say about his disappearance:
“We were convinced that that was not him missing,” said Aaron Ojeda, Patrick Ojeda's father. “He would call. He would let you know, ‘Hey, I am alright.’ But it just didn’t come and didn't come, and then when we heard some of the news from the sheriff's department, it was like the bottom fell out from me.”
“Maybe he did get out or he floated downstream a while, and he is probably clinging to a tree or sitting on a rock or on somebody's property,” Aaron Ojeda said. “We just miss him and hope they find him alive, bring him safely home out of the wilderness.”
