A Never-Ending Search by Relatives and Friends

Logan Jacinto’s family has been organizing volunteer search parties for the past five days to check for any sign of him in the fields and forests around the highway.

They were joined by members of the Texas Department of Public Safety, the Kaufman County Constable’s Office, and the Kaufman County Fire Marshal’s Office.

We weren’t gonna give up on him,” said Sydonia Jacinto. “We said we were going to be all day all night. That’s exactly what we did.” Their efforts were cut short when they discovered his body in a creek less than a mile from the crash scene. His brothers discovered the terrible finding.

My brother, the one who jumped in, he’s not processing it,” said Sydonia Jacinto. “It hasn’t hit him completely and he was like, ‘I jumped in there sis, I pulled him out of the water. I gave him a kiss and told him I love you.’”

I appreciate the police coming out and helping but it wasn’t enough,” Sydonia Jacinto said. “We were going to keep on going until we found him. Like I said, not the way we wanted to find him but we have that closure now.”
