Just days after a missing Walker man's body was found, another family is still searching for answers to find their missing loved one.

"Another day starts with no answers. That feeling in my heart is still there and will never go away. The same words race through my head every day all day... WHERE ARE YOU??? We all miss you so much.” said
Shawna Hunziker on the Justice for Josh Wellman Facebook page.

Her brother Josh Wellman has just passed the 1,200 days missing milestone.

“Please, she continued, “Please: If anyone knows anything, please, please, please contact the Cedar Rapids police. WE WILL NEVER STOP LOOKING.”

Family friend Heather Tuttle is among those who are helping Shawna, and Josh's mom, Teresa Walton, to keep Josh's name and face in the public eye, as they look for answers for their own missing person case, and reach out to other families facing the same tragedy.

Josh was last seen around 11 a.m. on November 12, 2015. Teresa and Shawna had dropped off at the ASAC office in Cedar Rapids. The last time he was seen was on a surveillance camera at the US Celluar building in Cedar Rapids later on that day. He has not been seen since.

On November 16, 2015 he was reported missing.

To help keep Josh's face and name in the public, and to show their support for other families of missing persons, Josh's friends and family are organizing a vigil. Plans continue for this event, scheduled for June 8, from 1-3 pm at Green Square Park in Cedar Rapids. The purpose of this event is to come together and remember all of Iowa's missing people, and their families.

“It is as very important to Teresa to include all of the missing because she never wants another family to feel like she has felt when Josh's story has been overlooked,” says Heather, who has spent hundreds of hours researching the stories of missing persons in our state. “It is unbelievable how many stories there are,” Heather continues. “It's heartbreaking. You wouldn't believe the hundreds of hours I have spent searching lost, missing and unidentified groups looking, hoping and praying to find Josh to bring my friends some peace.”

Teresa adds, “We want people to know that Josh was NOT disposable and that he IS loved and missed! I know he would never have deserted his family, especially his daughter. I just want answers. It has been over 3 years and we are not any closer to finding him then we were when he went missing. I miss him every day and if I could go back and relive that day, I would have hugged Josh and told him how much I loved him.”
