Statement from Cypress-Fairbanks ISD:
“Cypress-Fairbanks ISD is overjoyed to announce that Cypress Ranch High School student Nahum Legaspi has been located and reunited with his family. We would like to thank CFISD police, local law enforcement, Texas EquuSearch and the entire community for the outpouring of support during this multi-agency search. There is not enough praise for those who worked around the clock over the past several days; from the first responders to the community members who kept a keen eye out to our local restaurants who donated food. We appreciate all those who worked to ensure Nahum’s safe return. We ask that you respect the privacy of the family, giving them the space they need during this time.”
4/29/17 — GROUND SEARCH SUSPENDED — While the Cypress-Fairbanks ISD Police Department will be continuing their intense investigation into the disappearance of Nahum Legaspi; the Texas EquuSearch organization will be temporarily suspending our search for Nahum … until more information from investigators becomes available that can put our searchers into a more specific area to find Nahum. All immediate areas of concern have been searched at least twice, by foot and ATV searchers, and we are confident that Nahum is not in that specific area. A helicopter from the DPS using a high-tech locating system, and tracking dogs weren’t able to locate Nahum either. Once we receive credible information of Nahum’s possible whereabouts; the Texas EquuSearch team will re-activate its search.
