SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Jackson Miller’s mom, Gina Funaro tells News 4 that a long time resident of South Lake Tahoe reached out to her via www.findjacksonmiller.com last week saying she saw Jackson in the area multiple times, as recently as July 2014.
Gina Funaro, Jackson’s mom says, “I was just really excited, but I have learned to control my emotions a bit, because we have gotten lots of waves of really good leads that have not materialized.”
Funaro described the days following Jackson’s disappearance, “Four days after Jackson left his home there were three reported sightings of him from the same street within a few blocks and the sightings were very convincing that it was Jackson down to what he said and what he was wearing and the way he was acting, but it was also clear at that point that he needed medical attention and that he wasn’t well.”
Funaro says she and her husband Paul Miller both trust the woman who says she saw Jackson. The unidentified woman told them she, her husband and her son all believed they saw Jackson in South Lake Tahoe on numerous occasions and that he was always alone.
Jackson’s dad, Paul Miller says he used to take the whole family to South Lake Tahoe to go snowboarding and that Jackson was somewhat familiar with the area.
Miller and Funaro say they have no reason to believe that Jackson isn’t alive and now they are just waiting on more leads, “We’re still looking for you and we still have hope that we’ll be with you soon.”
