Wrangler Leesman, Army Ranger search aid

This account is being set up to help support the continued search and any other related costs to aid in these efforts to find and bring home Wrangler Leesman, an Army Ranger and decorated soldier who served 5 tours for his country. He has unfortunately had an accident while on vacation kayaking in Belize and has been missing at sea off the coast since Tuesday, April 28th. We are seeking any help whether funding or to simply please pass on and share his story with as many people as possible in our efforts to get the attention of congressman or woman or other political officials; to hopefully get help from the US Government to join in the search. In the meantime, a group of family and friends has stepped up using any means possible inlcuding: Facebook, writing congress, state officials, the US Embassy in Belize and with the help of all the great people at the local news channels in both Texas and Arizona CBS to spread the word in a desperate plea to get the US Govt. to join in the search. The private funding has been taken on only by family and friends thus far and we asking for help and paid for the private funding of a helicopter and other search efforts due to the limited resources available. We are very thankful and seek anyone to help however they can to assist the brave men and women of the Belize Coast Guard, the US Embassy in Belize and other volunteers who we are forever in debt to for their efforts to try and find my son, Wrangler Leesman. We need to please help them in their search efforts in any way you can, even if it is simply telling a friend about his incident.

Army Ranger missing at sea off the coast of Belize

All of his family and friends across the country are trying to band together in an effort to unite to seek help in the continued search and rescue efforts to find him. Due to Belize being such a small country they unfortunately do not have alot of resources available and to our knowledge they have only 2 Coast Guard Boats being used and have a single aircraft, but due to weather and mechanical issues has not been used, however told that soon it will join the effort as well. Due to the limited resources we are left to privately try to seek help and are hiring a private helicopter company and other means to do whatever we can to try and find him, hopefully in time to save him.

God bless everyone for all of your help and prayers. We thank you all for any efforts to please help to bring home my son to his family, his wonderful friends and most importantly back to the United States of America, the country he loved and served.
