I kept reminding my brother that I needed to look through those ponds. Jayden’s aunt Susan Deedon told FOX4 on Friday,
“I just didn’t know there was another pond over there, or I would have gone and looked. “Even if he fled, he had a good reason,” she said.
Police said they had discovered some remains that day, and Robker’s family said FOX4 the remains matched the teen’s description. According to Gladstone police, preliminary autopsy results show no evident signs of wrongdoing. Police in Gladstone and Kansas City are still looking.
