Volunteers Helping with Chrisitian Aguilar Search
Published September 27th, 2012
Local law enforcement is getting help from the FDLE, FBI, and the US Marshals with the search, and Christian's friends from Miami are volunteering lending a helping hand in the search. Two teens ages 16, and 17 are using social media to spread the word about Christian. They're goal is to provide closure for the family.
Students from Doral Academy in Miami Stephanie Rincon and Valeska Pella who organized 250 volunteers are pushing to get the word out.
"The family needs help we need volunteers," Valeska Pella student at Durell Academy said.
"I was personally friends with him and his brother Alex, they're amazing people they had such a good heart, " Stephanie Rincon said.
The teens have set up a volunteering station in front of the Florida Farm Bureau where volunteers can go out and help in the search.
"Think about if it was them, think about the situation we're in, so many of us are helping so many of us are donating, because we know a lot of people are giving up," Rincon said.
Giving up is something these teens do not want to happen, they're going to the social media networking site, Facebook, to spread the word about their friend.
"If you go on Facebook there's a Facebook page called FIND CHRISTIAN AGUILAR in all caps," Rincon said.
So far the teens have raised $500 for the family. They say more vans are expected to come up Friday to help with the search.
