    I react to fear with anger, so my first question would be" why are the parents not paying attention?!" and my first thought would be " My God, I hope he is ok. God help him"
    That being said, I hope with all my hope today, that they find him alive and he will be able to tell this story someday.. Prayers out to him now..
