    I don’t know how this effects your blog but I will share the update anyway. After almost 20 years of nothing Tyler has been found of sorts. He posted to another blog letting everyone know know he is doing just fine, assuring he has had a good life with his mother and stepfather, and thanking people for being concerned about him. However though he has known about the situation for some time he is not currently interested in returning to the USA, contacting his biological father at this time, or divulging exactly where he is now or where his mother is. He has asked that we all respect his privacy so he can live his life and achieve his goals until such a time when he is ready to address his past and what happened in the USA. His use of Maori words in his post confirms he is or at one time since his departure from the USA was in New Zealand, but beyond that nothing more is known.

    Tyler’s father is my brother. We don’t know for sure that Tyler was the one that posted on Lighting Their Way Home. Unless you have more details and are sure that was Tyler, please don’t assume. This could hurt our search for him instead of helping.
