"As the news has indicated, our Michael has been found and it is with a heavy heart that we share he is no longer with us. Our family would like to thank each and every one of you for all your shares, prayers and positive thoughts.
Knowing Michael was loved by so many helps provide comfort during this difficult time. We are in the process of bringing Michael home and an update with funeral arrangements will be forthcoming.
Again, we wish to thank you all for the love and support you’ve shown. Your continued prayers are much appreciated."
