Randy and Denim Sylvester, ages 3 and 7, disappeared from an apartment complex at 4025 Burke Rd in Pasadena, Texas around 9:15 p.m. on Sunday, June 15, 2008 and have not been seen or heard from since. The three yr old girl was last seen wearing a pink v-neck tee with brown trim, pink shorts, pink flip flops, and braided hair with a pink pony tail holder. The seven yr old boy was last seen wearing a blue and orange Florida Gator shirt, blue denim shorts with black and white tennis shoes.
June 16, 2008 – TES awaits the call from law enforcement to request our assistance. We have many members and volunteers ready to assist and may possibly get that call on Tuesday morning. Please watch the website or await the call out.
June 18, 2008 – Over 100 volunteers have arrived to donate their time and heartfelt concern to assist in the search for these missing children. TES brings a drone aircraft to the area to scour hundreds of acres, many horses and atv’s and ground searchers cover block after block in hopes of finding clues, answers, or… the children. We will resume searching in the morning. Please continue to pray for these children.
A very special thank you to Roy Moffitt Customized Fueling for his generosity and huge donation of fuel to our searchers today. Without his donation and warm heart, this would have been much more difficult. We are forever grateful to Mr. Moffitt.
June 19, 2008 Update – While temperatures are blazing, another huge group of volunteers refuse to give up hope on finding these children. Horses, atv’s, and ground searchers will scour another several hundred acres today. Please continue to pray for these children and their grandmother who struggles to understand what may have happened to her grandchildren and where they may be.
June 21, 2008 – It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we report the remains of these small children were found early this morning. Please pray for the family and all the incredible people that worked so hard to make this happen.
June 22, 2008 – Circling the sky and flying off into the heavens in celebration of their new beginnings, two snow white doves were released for Randy and Denim Sylvester.
