Jacob Gray, born and raised in Santa Cruz, California, went missing on April 7, 2017 in the Olympic National Park. His bike, bike trailer, and camping gear were found by a Park Ranger on Sol Duc Road in Port Angeles, Washington, 6.3 miles down the Sol Duc River.

 Jacob’s family and friends are extremely concerned for him, and search efforts have been ongoing since his disappearance.

 All funds donated will go towards efforts in finding Jacob, as well as offset the cost for Randy Gray and Laura Gray, so they are able to continue searching for their beloved son.

 Jacob, we love you, and we won’t stop looking for you.

We met our goal! WOW, none of us can believe how amazing every last one of you have been during this process and it just goes to show that a little from a lot can "add" up! Wanted to send out an update to all friends and family following the fund raising efforts. Anyone that hasn't donated can continue to add to the total if they want, the family has already begun to use these funds for much needed expenses and here is a personal message from Laura herself to you all.

Dear Family and Friends, our family is bowled over with appreciation at the response and love we have received. Thank you so much for giving... Randy and I are using the funds to pay for the equipment we have purchased in the search effort, lost time, and reaching out with boosted posts on Social Media. We also will set some aside for Jacob when we find him. We still have no idea where he is and Randy has combed the mountain with no sign. We have also blanketed the surrounding towns with fliers. We will continue to spread the net in case he has wandered. When this settles down, we plan to donate to the local rescue organizations who have been so supportive. We also are thinking about creating a website, with a national database system, where families with missing persons can find out every resource available in an area where they have lost a loved one: Local police, local SAR resources, local hospitals, local etc... It seems a common problem across our nation when people go missing and jurisdiction becomes such a problem. But long and short, thank you all for showing our family how much we are loved.

What a tragic and very untimely event. Laura: Please make sure that the searchers are well compensated when these funds are distributed before giving funds to other community groups. I heard that Randy spent a lot of cash on equipment and supplies for this effort and also spent a lot of time away from work which was another big expense. Would like to see the a large part of funds go to Randy personally. He deserves it.

I think of you every day and I search for Jacobs' face in every crowd. I see his flyers everywhere, the trail may have grown cold but the pursuit has not.

We are so, so, touched. I can't find enough words... and the ones I do find fall so flat. At first, I was disconcerted to have money raised on our behalf. But it has become such a blessing. We will use it to not only find Jacob, but we want to give to all of those community groups who are rising up to support and search. wow... On a personal note... I have always been so self-sufficient and considered myself the strong one in place to give to others... but felt very alone and quiet when it was my hurt to process and carry. But you have shown me that isn't true. Your gifts of prayer, love, and money are really humbling. Thank you. And thank you Jennifer for doing this. You were probably right to just do it without asking, as I would have told you no. :) For those of you who don't know, Jennifer also showed up for the initial search. She camped out and was there day one. She helped, she comforted, she cared. And we haven't seen each other for many, many years. You are one in a million Jennifer.
