PANAMA CITY BEACH — The family of a missing spring breaker is reaching out to the U.S. Attorney General’s office to get involved in the investigation.
Parents of Reny Jose, a Rice University student who was reported missing March 3 while in Panama City Beach for Spring Break, have received assistance from the Bay County community in form of search crews and a $15,000 reward for information as to his whereabouts to no avail. Now they are asking for the community’s support in a petition to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder asking for federal involvement in the case.
“To-date as we are approaching June in our search for Reny, we are pleading assistance from your office to seek help from federal agencies (FBI, US Coast Guard, DOJ) to search for Reny’s whereabouts …,” parents Sherly and Jose George wrote in the petition. “We look forward to your support during our time of difficulty.”
