UPDATE – Aaron Rose has been found safe. We will update with more details as soon as they are made available. 

An Orange family is asking the community for prayers as a search continues this morning for their son, Aaron Rose. Rose graduated Saturday evening from Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School as salutatorian of his class.

Rose went out in a kayak to watch the sunset after supper Wednesday evening and never returned. According to his parents, Mary Beth and Daniel Rose, the winds picked up due to an oncoming storm. A boat was immediately sent out, but had to return when it ran out of gas. The Rose family are on vacation in Honduras

Honduran rescue crews were to go back out this morning at dawn and continue the search.

Daniel Rose is pastor at Community Church in Orange.
