I know this is long over due but I wanted to say:

Thank you for all the support. My family and I really appreciate everything and it will never be forgotten. Its amazing how many people are being so supportive and every time I think about it it does bring me back to a positive mindset.

Once I gather all the numbers together I plan to update once again and show where the funds have gone. I think you should know where your donations are going and hopefully feel that it is spent with the goal of finding Denise. The funds are giving us more options and we are exploring them all.

Again Thank You and Sorry for taking so long to say it.

Thank you everyone for helping to support the search for Denise. The family is asking that we write our congressmen to get additional support in search efforts.

UPDATE: While the Spanish authorities are searching for Denise, there is action that Denise’s American friends and family can take that will have a substantial impact: Help us let our congressmen and senators know that we’re concerned and that we want them to act now.
Cedric has already started working with Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake, as well as Representative Trent Franks. We would like to thank the Senators and Rep. Franks. They're getting things moving. However, we hope that we can get even more momentum at the national level. Please join us in raising our voices in solidarity and support for Denise and the Thiem family.
We’d like to ask you, please, to spend 5 minutes of your day to write, email, or call your elected representatives. Let us make it easy for you! We’ve included a template letter (or email) below that you can copy and paste. We've also included links to help you locate your representatives and senators, along with their contact information.
Thank you all for helping us to bring home our friend, our sister.

RE: Missing Person: Denise Thiem
Dear Representative [Name of Representative],
I am writing to you about an Arizona resident who has gone missing overseas in Astorga, Leon, Spain. Denise Thiem was hiking a trail called el Camino de Santiago and was last seen on Sunday, April 5th around noon. Based on what we know, Denise was either kidnapped by an individual or for the purposes of Human Trafficking.
The citizens that support The El Camino Trail and local authorities are doing all they can to help find Denise, but I believe that since Denise is a U.S. citizen that we should also support the cause in finding her and bringing her home to her family. You can read more regarding Denise's disappearance at: https://www.facebook.com/helpdenisenow?pnref=story. As a citizen of this country, I am requesting that my government supports our missing loved ones overseas.
Please do what you can, in your capacity, to make sure that the appropriate resources have been assigned to help bring Denise home.
Sincerely,
[Signature]

I am so very sorry about the loss of Denise. She was a sweet and loyal friend of mine since we met in 5th grade and I am so very sorry for the heartache her parents and brother Cedric are enduring. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers every single day. Much love and sympathy, Kerry Ostrand Johnson
