God bless his soul and watch over his family.
How sad. The poor family.
Not sure about excerpts here, but here's a little bit from the story:

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) - The body of a boy believed to be a missing 9-year-old was found Tuesday morning on a gated mountain road about a mile-and-a-half from his home, four days after he disappeared, authorities said...
A state forester discovered the body shortly after 8 a.m. just off a leaf-covered forest road that leads up a mountain, said state Bureau of Forestry manager Jeffrey S. Prowant and South Williamsport Police Chief Rexford Lowmiller...
Thank you for posting the update. God bless his little soul and bring comfort to his family.
Little Logan is beholding our King in His Beauty now, Marvelling at the Wonders our Lord has Prepared for him in our Heavenly Father's House.
Tearful Prayers continuing for the heartbroken family, including that He will Bestow upon them His Grace, that they will have the Peace-giving Hope of seeing Logan again Someday.
How sad. I have an autistic grandchild about the same age. It is his parents' greatest fear that he will escape the house, or the school someday. Without generalizing too much, many autistic children seem to have a need to wander away, despite parental precuations. And they can be very quick. RIP, Logan.
Prayers for the family.
That's true. I've over here crying my eyes out because this little boy reminds me so much of my autistic brother when he was that age. He got out the house more than once.
One time the people in the neighborhood went searching for him, and my dad found him in some stranger's house watching TV. He'd just wandered into someone's house and sat down in front of the television. This was back in the 60s in the deep south when it wasn't uncommon for people to keep their doors open.
May the Lord welcome Logan with loving arms and send His peace to the grieving parents.
Prayers for little Logan, and his family.
Prayers and blessings to the family to which he was sent and that cared for him during his brief stay here on earth...
Poor little guy, what a sad story. : (
Missing person ping. Sad news ping

(My almost 6 year old son is named Logan also. I would be totally destroyed if this happened to him.)
How sad for his family. However he will be having a great Christmas at Our Lord's Table!
Please Lord, give this family peace.
