Sad Update on 18 Year Old Missing Teen Jesse Cale
Updated May 17 AT 3:20 P.M.
The body of 18-year-old Jesse Cale has been found. In a story from The Poststar, Cale was found earlier today near where he was reported missing. According to police, there were no signs of any foul play.
Cale's grandmother, CJ Lofgren, teary eyed said
"he got rescued by his own daddy. God gave him back to us."
There will be an autopsy done, soon.
Our condolences to the family. God bless.
18-year-old Jesse Cale, who is a senior at Schuylerville High School, was camping with his family and friends on Friday at a campsite in Greenwich. He walked away around midnight, and hasn’t been seen since.
Cale needs to take medication for seizures. He may be disoriented.
In a story from The Saratogian, the ground search includes an area in the woods along the Hudson River. On Monday, part of the search focused more closely on the underground infrastructure of what used to be a mill, not far from the campsite. The search has been going on since Friday night and ended on Monday night. The plan will be re-evaluated later this week. There will still be periodic searches by helicopter and boat.
Also according to the Saratogian, “local volunteers worked with emergency responders, including the Lower Adirondack Search and Rescue, North Country Search and Rescue, Hudson-Mohawk Search and Rescue, Tri-State Search and Rescue, Northeast Mobile Search and Rescue and the Washington County Sheriff’s Department.”
The Times Union included a new poster about Cale, recently released by authorities.
Our prayers are with Jesse Cole's family.
