Finding Parker

$2,695 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 46 people in 22 months
My 15 year old nephew, Parker Eastman Halutpzok, went missing from the Detroit Lakes, MN area on 8/21/17.  Parker is a smart, compassionate, kind, fun-loving, handsome young man.  Parker has always been such a caring older brother, and his three younger brothers (especially the baby) are devastated to be without him.

Although there are suspicions about who may have Parker, we have received no word from him and have no way of knowing whether he is safe.  He disappeared in the middle of the night without his phone, with no money, no ID, and no personal belongings whatsoever.  It has been a very difficult month for the family, we are so very worried about him.

We have been in contact with the Detroit Lakes Police Department, the Sartell Police Department, and the St. Cloud Police Department.  We have had posters printed by the Jacob Wettering Foundation and CFSI.  With help, we have distributed Parker's flyers across most of the state.  We have plastered Parker's story all over social media.  All to no avail.

Although the police have been searching, they are not able to devote the same time and resources to finding him that a private investigator would be able to.  I have consulted with several private investigators this week and have found one that is willing to take our case for a greatly reduced rate.  He has informed me that all of the missing children he has searched for have been found.  However, he still needs a retainer before he can begin.  He recommended we ask for $5000 to cover the hourly rate and any expenses he might incur.  Any funds not used to find Parker will be donated to organizations like the Jacob Wetterling Foundation and CFSI that are devoted to finding missing children.  

We appreciate all the public support we have received so far.  Please continue to help us by continuing to share Parker's story and by sharing this link.  Any type of monetary donation is greatly appreciated, we are desperate to have Parker home again.

Parker has been found safe in California on 11/24/17!!! We are so happy and relieved to know that he has been found, but have no further details at this time. I am going to keep the account open for now, as we are uncertain of how he is going to return home and may need to cover travel expenses (we are in Minnesota). We did not end up spending money on a private investigator, so any remaining funds after Parker is home will be donated to help find other missing children. Thank you all so much for following Parker's story. Your prayers, shares, donations, and support have kept us going during this difficult time.
Soon we will all be together again!

Thanks to your generosity, we have raised enough money for a retainer so our private investigator can get started!!! We are so appreciative for all of your help, but we aren't done yet. This money needs to cover the hourly rate and travel expenses for the PI. Our retainer could be eaten up rather quickly. It would be such an unbelievable, heartbreaking disappointment if we had to give up searching part-way into the investigation due to running out of funding. Please continue to share and donate if you are able. We are so grateful to everyone's help in our search for Parker. This would not be possible without all of you.
