We just want everyone’s help in finding Ian. Please take the second to share, we’re scrolling mindlessly all day on Facebook, we share useless stuff, funny stuff. This is something that is life or death for my family.
Ian was a son, brother, uncle, godfather, a friend. We want him to come home. We pray he’s still out there.
So once again, his name is Ian Medina. He is a 23-year-old Hispanic male. He is 5’10 and 145lbs. Ian was last seen 10/22/2021 around midnight at the Carteret Waterfront.
