For days now ever since we learned that Noah Donahoe was missing, we have all invested in the hope that he was safe and well and would soon be found.
He became our son, our bother, our family and we willed him to be ok.
The community bonded together and everyone set out to look for him. It was a concerted effort and some came long distances to join in. There was always a hope that he would be found alive and well, but that was not to be.
This morning we heard the sad news that Noah had been found. No one knows what happened other than those who are dealing with the situation.
But that didn’t stop the faceless gutless key board warriors crawling out of the woodwork with their theories of what had happened to Noah. All without foundation and intended to rise tension and maximise the hurt that the family are suffering at this time.
They have no shame in posting false information. Passing on something they have heard from a friend of a friend of a friend.
All the efforts of a community who had come together to find Noah tarnished with the comments appearing on social media.
Please stop and think before you try to seek a bit of attention by pretending you ‘ are in the know’ In actual fact it’s none of your business and I’m sure the family are hurting even more with each new conspiracy theory.
Whatever happened, a lovely young boy has been taken too soon and a family is grieving. My condolences to his mother and his family.
May his memory be a blessing.
