His family is not giving up on finding him. They say it doesn't feel like it's been three years since he went missing, but an eternity.

"You can't go, 'oh, we've taken one step forward' because there's been zero steps forward in any of this process," Deorr's grandmother, Trina Clegg, said. "And so, the grieving is hard, the ups and downs are harder and day-by-day when you think, you know. I mean, someone asked me, does it get any better? Absolutely not. It gets worse and worse as every day and every year passes."

The investigation is still ongoing. If you have any information about the disappearance, you can call the Lemhi County Sheriff's Office at 208-756-8980. Or call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children Hotline, which is 1-800-THE-LOST.
