10/22/09 — It is with a heavy heart that we report the body of Somer Renee Thompson was located yesterday in a Georgia landfill. Please keep Somer’s family, friends and the entire community of Orange Park Florida in your thoughts and prayers during their time of grief. We would like to thank all of our volunteers, the community volunteers, the U.S. Navy, FDLE, Clay County Sheriff’s Office and all other supporting law enforcement agencies for their incredible work on this case. If it were not for the quick detective work on this case, little Somer’s body may never have been found. If you ask Tim Miller, he will tell you the only thing worse than losing a child is never knowing what happened to to them.
We now need to focus on finding the monster responsible for this tragedy and bring them to justice. We have all the confidence in the world that this will be accomplished.
