On National Suicide Prevention Day I reflect on my own past of suicide and I gave an update on the search for my missing nephew.
My 17-year-old nephew, Macin Smith, walked out the door supposedly on his way to high school. He vanished on his way to school three years ago. Police officers now believe he took his own life.
I was part of a group called Macin’s Army that searched the St. George desert for his body this weekend. Unfortunately, we didn’t find anything.
There is hope when it comes to suicide. Reach out and ask for help.
How did we get here, according to KSL News Radio’s Lindsay Aerts?
It’s been three years since St. George teen Macin Smith went missing and family and friends are still rallying to find any clues into his disappearance.
On Saturday, family members and volunteers plan to search a 2-mile radius around the Smith’s Little Valley area home.
Smith was 17 when he went missing in 2015 and investigators say they still have no clues or evidence about where he could be.
Macin left his home September 1st, 2015 without his wallet or cell phone, his parents Tracy-Bratt Smith and Darren Smith say they believe he left with just the clothes on his back.
