Missing Teen - Marble Arvidson

Town NewsAre there any updates on the missing Brattleboro teen, Marble Arvidson? I've seen very little coverage of this situation other than the initial announcement that he was missing. Have there been any official searches for him? Are the authorities treating it as a potential runaway situation? I know that our area is overwhelmed with trying to recover and repair from the storm but I'm saddened that it seems so little attention is being paid to this boy. He has been missing almost a week and there doesn't seem to be any news or announcements about how people might be able to help. This is very disturbing. Have the police even issued a statement about how they are responding or what they think the chances are of him being found safe?

    There are posters everywhere. His absence/disappearance was
    covered in the paper. There is actually quite a lot of attention
    being paid. Just because it doesn't happen in front of you doesn't
    mean it is not happening.

    I believe I heard someone from the town gov. saying that they have had groups searching the area where he was last seen.

    Yes, there are many posters around town and, yes, there was an initial article about his disappearance-the a brief follow up to say there were no leads. I am remembering, however, the little girl who disappeared in NH a few weeks back -I saw constant coverage about her and the efforts being made to find her -almost daily in the news-including the Reformer. Sadly she was found dead. And while I imagine that people are looking for him and doing other things that I don't know about I still maintain that there has been a noticeable lack of information/updates/pleas for help in finding him in local news (including this one) This isn't looking like it's going to have a good outcome and I would think that if the authorities had done a large search or brought in dogs, etc.there would have been some news about it-even with all that's been going on in the aftermath of Irene.

    Marble's absence is heavy on my mind these days. By all reports, from people I know who know him, he would not stay away from family and friends this long. If there is a way I can help with Marble's search or supporting his family I would love to know and have it posted on ibrattleboro.

    I'm one of many I know who is sick about Marble. It seems impossible to know what to do. Some teens say they have seen him: it is impossible to know if that's true, or not. I share everyone's dark fear, that he was somehow harmed in the flood, but he disappeared before the flood and he's a strong young man. I have no idea what has happened. Like many, I would just like to know that he is okay, somewhere.

    He is a really neat, unique, special, and kind-hearted kid, and the possibility that he came to harm is horrifying. Some of the adults who are most worried are constrained from speaking due to confidentiality issues, but I assure you this young man is loved, and hearts are breaking over his disappearance.

    Any news? I've heard conflicting reports.

    The best source for news on this is
    marblearvidson.com, a website set up by family and
    friends who are actively searching for him. The site
    contains information on how you can help.

    Also on the site is the new thought that Marble was
    last seen WITH SOMEONE, not going for a hike
    alone. I agree with the author of this thread that the
    media is paying very little attention to this case. The
    writer a few comments up posted a facebook link,
    which leads to the link I'm posting. These sites give
    more information than our own newspaper.

    I recommend sending an email to the executive
    editor of the Reformer (tderrico@reformer.com)
    asking him to use the paper to help find Marble.

    So, apparently you can't just type in that address and
    get to the page. You have to go to the facebook page
    above, then go to "Info" on facebook and click on the
    link to the website there. This shouldn't be so

    I just saw the search organizing tent at the Chelsea
    Royal Diner. They have maps and vests and info on how
    to help search for Marble.

    The Commons article below explains why it is
    believed that Marble left his house with an unknown
    individual -- a man. One of his housemates heard a
    knock at the door followed by a male voice. Later, a
    note was found that Marble wrote, saying he would
    return in 20 minutes.

    It is still possible that this person is keeping him
    safe. He may not be around town anymore, though.
    If you have Facebook or some other social media
    account, please spread the word to your friends
    around the country, and ask them to do the same.
    We can't just sit here afraid.
