Here in Southern Vermont, Hurricane Irene has caused a lot of damage, mostly to the roads and to property. I would like to help clean up, but before the storm hit, a young man went missing. In the aftermath of the storm, only friends and family have been looking for him. I want to raise money for printing of Posters and other expenses to find this young man.

My friend, Marble Ace Arvidson, 17 years old, left a note for his roommates that he would be 'back in 30 minutes'. He had plans to meet his girlfriend at 4 O'Clock. Nobody has heard from or seen Marble since that day, the day before Hurricane Irene hit Vermont.
Power went out, roads got washed away, everyone's lives were disrupted. People are out of their homes, businesses boarded up. The National Guard has to town, FEMA, Red cross, the Governor, the President all say, "It's a disaster! "
It has been all over the headlines across the nation, across the world.
Gradually, the newspapers have been spreading the word about our missing boy, and more people are getting involved.
There is now a wordpress blog I can recommend. You can find newspaper articles here.
If Marble was 8 yrs old, I'm sure I would have seen an 'Amber Alert' pretty quickly on my facebook page. Marble was lookin forward to his senior year in High school. We do not believe this is a runaway.
Besides printing posters and other expenses, personally, I want to find Rescue Dogs to help in the search.
just one guy wanting to make a difference
