This message was received last night from the Aunt of missing Mark Degner.  Bryan Hayes and Mark Degner were last seen on February 10, 2005 in Jacksonville, Fl.


Tomorrow is Wednesday, February 10, 2010…which seems like a typical
mid week day to most but not for my family along with the Cummings
family and more…it marks the anniversary date that they disappeared
and haven’t been seen since.

Tomorrow is my nephew’s (Mark Degner) 5th year anniversary date of his
disappearance, we still have no clues, no leads and no answers. If you
all would please circle this email to everyone you know letting them
know that these children are still missing and help us keep there faces
out there I would greatly appreciate it.

Having a missing loved one is the hardest thing a family can face. I
know with God, hope and our communities keeping awareness out there will
be the key to bringing our missing loved ones home. Please keep them in
your prayers that they are safe and return home soon.

*Attached is a updated progression picture of my Nephew (Mark) along
with friend Bryan Hayes missing since February 10, 2005* below is a link
to our story.

Thanks again,

Family, friends express relief Wilberger’s body is finally found

Brooke Wilberger’s memory has faded on the BYU campus, but former roommates of the BYU sophomore who vanished five years ago in Corvallis, Ore., embraced with a sense of release Monday the news that her body had been found.

“It has felt like an eternity to every person involved in this,” said Brittany Bennion, one of Wilberger’s Deseret Towers roommates. “I’m happy that there is closure and I’m happy that they found her body. I know that this is what Brooke’s family was hoping for.”

The search for Wilberger, who disappeared from an apartment building near the Oregon State University campus in May 2004 shortly after finishing her freshman year at BYU, ended Monday when a man pleaded guilty to her murder after leading police to her body near the rugged Oregon coast.

Defendant Joel Courtney’s confession concluded one of the most publicized murder investigations in Oregon history.
