n Search of Jeremy: A Mother's Story

A true story about a 4-yr-old deaf boy, Jeremy Ray Coots, who wandered away from the babysitter's home south of Atchison, KS, near the Missouri River on February 18, 1977.

The author Melodye (Coots) Hathaway describes in captivating and honest detail the 5-day search for her 4-yr-old deaf son Jeremy Ray Coots and the aftermath that followed.

She was in her ninth month pregnancy with her second child as thousands of searchers over the course of 5 days came together to find her little boy, which officially ended with the findings of an air scent dog team.

It is a sad, heartbreaking, moving, uplifting and hopeful read, with a comfortable flow.

(My mom Sherril knows the Author of this book and her name is in the book.
As I was growing up my parents talked about Jeremy some times.
And how my dad was one of a lot of people from all over that helped look for Jeremy and how he was never found.
But now after reading this book I now have the full story.

I was just 3 at the time of Jeremy's disappearance I have no memory of him.  But I still will call him my Friend.
