Bring Josiah Home
I am a friend of Liz Hildebrand. Her son and a friend were traveling to the Gorge to see Dead and Co. They never arrived and their car was found abandoned in Yakima County, Wa. under suspicious circumstances. Below is a post from Liz regarding her sons disappearance. *****THE REWARD HAS BEEN INCREASED TO $15,000 FOR INFO LEADING TO JOSIAH’S RETURN***** On Friday, June 7th, my son Josiah Hilderbrand (aka Jo) was headed to George, WA, to attend a Dead & Co concert at the Gorge Amphitheater. He never made it. The vehicle he was traveling in was found abandoned in Yakima County, Washington. Both he and the driver of the vehicle, Jon Cleary, are missing under suspicious circumstances. Neither have been seen or heard from since that day. It is also unknown whether or not there were other people present in the vehicle. If anyone has any information regarding their whereabouts or what happened that day or leading up to it, please contact the Yakima County Sheriff Dept @ (509)574-2500 reference case# 19C09726 The first photo is me and my son in January 2018. The second photo is Jon Cleary and my son in the vehicle they were traveling in. It was a 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10218172363441241&id=1253586812¬if_t=feedback_reaction_generic¬if_id=1560727708077058&ref=m_notif+ Read More
I want to sincerely thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support we have received. As of today, Josiah is still missing and his disappearance is being investigated by the FBI as a homicide. I am still hoping that his remains will be found and brought home. Extensive searches with people, dogs and drones have taken place and progress is being made in the case. The only money used so far has been to provide travel for his dad to get to the memorial. All moneys are being saved for future trips that may be needed to Washington State and/or for reward money should someone come forward with information leading to the whereabouts of my son. Thanks again for everything... not doing this alone has made a big difference in my life
We have received several generous donations from people all over the country. I am grateful to see the community gather around Liz and Josiah and Jon and his family. The donations will hopefully provide additional reward money to increase the chances of receiving information leading to the location of these beloved people. Thank you for your generosity. Please keep sharing.
