Zacharey Wilks

Dear Colleagues:
 
As many of you already know, the son of Elizabeth Wilks, Assistant to Secretary-Treasurer Sara Steffens, has been missing for almost three months now. Zacharey, who is 27, left his home on California's Central Coast May 24, headed toward Las Vegas, but never arrived.
 
Those of you who were at the CWA Convention in Pittsburgh know that a request was made by one of the delegates for donations to a GoFundMe account to help increase the number of professionals searching for Zacharey and his car.  Among other things, pilots have been hired to fly over the areas where he may have been traveling.
 
For anyone who would like to donate, here is the link:  https://www.gofundme.com/find-zacharey-wilks   No donation is too small!
 
Elizabeth appreciates the outpouring of support.  Please keep Elizabeth and her family in your prayers and pray for Zacharey's safe return.
 
In Solidarity,
 
Linda
