Family, Friends, and Kind Strangers:
This fund has been created for the family of Riley Zickel, who has been missing since leaving for a overnight hike in Jefferson Park/The Pacific Crest Trail (Oregon) on July 26th. He was last heard from on July 27th at 2 in the morning, and has been missing ever since. Search teams and helicopters organized by local law enforcement agencies have been searching for him after a missing person's report was filed, and continue to do so.
We are attempting to raise money for Riley's family in order to aid with the ongoing search. This can help aid his parents in covering travel costs, food, supplies, lodging, and whatever other costs occur. This is a very trying time, and any donations will assist in the ongoing efforts to locate Riley tremendously. Receiving funds in a timely manner will be of the greatest benefit, but each and every cent counts, no matter the timing. There is no goal in regards to a certain amount of funds we are trying to reach. We just want to do what we can to help, and all funds will go directly to the family.
This fund has been created by friends of the Zickel family. Riley grew up as an extension of our family while spending many childhood years attending our mothers Preschool and Daycare, as well as growing up alongside myself and my two siblings.
This trying time requires immense love, prayer, and support for Riley and his family. The outreach has already been amazing, and we need to continue this energy and compassion as the search continues. We can help do more on our part by aiding the Zickel family while we continue sending our positive thougts.
We truly thank you for all of your kindness, support, and willingness to contribute to this fund for the Zickel family.
