A parent’s nightmare was realized when his son was lost in the Amazon on a hunting trip with friends. An 18-year old, Jonathon dos Santos Alves, somehow separated from his friends, probably in an attempt to spread out during the hunt, and they never saw him again. The boy’s father along with Fire and Rescue had searched for the boy since mid-May. The search was called off over a month ago, but his dad, Edison, continued to look for him with friends.
The father did find his son, but it was too late for both of them. His son had been on his own for six weeks. Read the details here.
