The Mayor and Police Chief thank those who volunteered your time in the search for Eric Duffey. "This community came together and treated the situation as if it were their own son or daughter missing."
To the public that assisted with the search, volunteered to assist with future searches and everyone who checked their property following the Code Red calls:
We wanted to thank you for volunteering your time in the search for Eric Duffey. The community stepped forward in such a positive way and so many people went above and beyond what they needed to do to help in the aid of finding Eric. This community came together and treated the situation as if it were their own son or daughter missing. We are truly grateful everyone was willing to be so generous with their time.
It is so good to see a community working together and sharing with each other their determination, hopefulness and perseverance as the people of Stevens Point showed by their willingness to help in any way possible to find Eric.
This community showed compassion and caring during this extremely upsetting incident by cooperating and working together in the dire circumstances where time was of the essence.
Thank you again for your generosity and selflessness in this extremely difficult situation.
