Missing Pastor's teenage son found

Gunner Lee Blair, a 13-year-old son of a US pastor Brandon Blair of Langston Baptist Church, who went missing for hours behind the church in the woods has been found.

The incident happened on Wednesday, April 11 and he was found on Thursday after a search was made for him. The news was confirmed by the Conway Police Department in South Carolina.

In a post on its  Facebook page, the Police wrote: “Gunner Lee Blair has been located and is safe.”

Pastor Blair thanked everyone who was involved in helping to find his son, noting that God is faithful. He wrote on Facebook: “Gunner is home safe! I want to thank everyone who prayed, searched, and helped spread the word. God is faithful!”

Late Wednesday night, the father of three announced that his son was missing. He posted a picture of his teenage son with the caption: “Our son Gunner is missing. He went into the woods behind our church at Langston Church and everyone has been looking including Horry County police. If anyone sees him, please call me or the police. He is wearing khaki shorts, a brown T-shirt, and a blue jacket. Prayers are appreciated.”

The police went to work, alerting the public of the incident. According to reports, frantic efforts were made by Pastor Blair - a United States Marine Corps veteran who served in the infantry as a machine gunner, the police, and community members before the boy was found.

Tara Nicole Riden commented: “There is a reason why that boy went in the woods. I hope that somebody can talk to him because I don't have a good feeling about the people this boy is around even though his father is a pastor. Something happened for that boy to run off like that and I hope that someone will find out why. The boy has been found. Amen. Praise the Lord.”
