Has there been any developments since this was posted last night?

I have seen it on social media.

There was another local teen missing for a couple of days last week and social media seemed to say she was found safe. I hope this is not the beginning of another trend.

I hope he is found safe. Prayers for him and his family.

I pray that Jonathan will be found safe and come home to his family. This must be a very frightening time for his family and I would implore the community to take note and think about anything you may have seen that might help.

This young man was last seen in Palo Alto and Menlo Park, so I would expect a lot of support from the local community!

As of this morning 10/31/17 at 9:25am. Jonathan has not been located. He is my cousin and this is a very real scary situation for all of us. Please continue to pray for him and share the posts on FB about his disappearance. Thank you. Maria

I am glad he was found. Parents should have written a message to the community too.
Jonathan, next time contact your parents to let them know where you are. You have the community all worried about you. I am glad you are alive and back with your family.
