    Eric, I am a friend of your mother's -I used to work in the courthouse. I know how much you boys mean to her. Please tell her that Amy (Abbate)Walsh would like to help if there is anything I could do. I think you know my daughter, Audra. My email address is I live in Cambridge and work in Ballston Spa, if you could email me al flyer and maybe a picture of Ryan's truck, I could pass them out in Saratoga, Ballston Spa and Greenwich, Cambridge area. I could also email them to other areas of the state. Please know you and your family are in our prayers.

    Dear Marie, Ron & Family: Marie, it has been a few years since we last spoke, but I wanted to let you know that we are thinking of you and pray for a quick and safe return home for Ryan. I can certainly keep an eye out in the Schenectady/Niskayuna area for his truck and I have also reposted the info to my FB account. If there's anything else I can do to be of assistance, please let me know.

    Peg & I have been praying for Ryans safe return home since we first heard the news. Please let us know when the next search is being planned and how we may lend our efforts in assisting the organizers. I am on vacation for 9 days starting this Saturday (11/24) and my time is all yours...please use my free time in any way your feel I can help.
    I have posted Ryans picture and story on my Facebook page to help get the story out not just locally but state wide as well.
    We would like to put Ryans pitcure on our car windows but we are unable to print the notice. If you have any addtional copies please leave them in our mailbox.

    Ron, Marie, Eric and entire Patton family, Jim and I continue to keep Ryan and you all in our prayers. I personally know the pain of having a missing loved one and know the only comfort is having that loved one home safe. We will continue to post fliers, keep eyes and ears open and PRAY! ~Katie P

  5. As a mother of 3 sons it breaks my heart to think of what this family has been through. I pray that god will continue to give you strenght to get through the difficult days and times ahead. I did not know Ryan personally but I feel like I have over this past week. What a guy and loved by so many. You should be very proud.
