HESPERIA – The search for 2-year-old Noah Abbott by the Sheriff’s Department Dive Team was concluded on Saturday afternoon after an extensive search of the 2.5-mile area of the approximately 7-mile long aqueduct. The Sheriff’s Department stressed that the ground crews will continue to look for Noah and have been instructed to immediately call the dive team back in the event of a sighting.
Noah went missing after a traffic collision sent the vehicle carrying him, his mother and two brothers into the Aqueduct off of Main Street in the City of Hesperia on Thursday evening. With zero visibility and dangerous conditions, the Sheriff’s Dive Team searched several hours the night of the collision, and again on Friday, March 3, 2017, and Saturday, March 4, 2017.
The community is heartbroken about not the lives lost, but the child injured and now about the family who does not have Noah recovered in order to provide him with a proper burial. Three local women, Lisa Gutierrez, Jen Ealy, and Reyna Godinez have met online through this tragedy and would like to bring the community together to continue the search. “The plans are to meet tomorrow at 12:00 p.m. at Walmart in Hesperia and from there form groups,” said Reyna Godinez. Godinez said that she can not imagine what the father is going through. She said that before the search they will discuss safety with all those volunteering to search. The groups will be looking for any clues that may lead them to Noah.
They are asking for the community to join them on Monday, March 6, 2017, at 12:00 p.m. The group will be meeting at the Walmart located at 13401 Main Street in the City of Hesperia. The women said they are organizing the effort to bring Noah home to the families. Godinez said she would like to see these efforts continue until Noah is found. She said that regardless of anything, she will continue walking the area with her husband until he is returned to his family. The family is requesting financial assistance through Go Fund Me accounts in order to lay the deceased to rest.
