New hope for family of missing Oklahoma teen in Ecuador

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla_The family of August Reiger, a missing Oklahoma teen, has renewed hope in locating him.

August Reiger disappeared in Ecuador in June while on vacation with his family, but on Tuesday Ecuador's President met with the boy's family to let them know he is making it his personal mission to find the missing teen. 

The family say the Ecuadorian government is doing everything they can, and they feel grateful for their help. 

Reiger has become the poster child for those missing in Ecuador. His disappearance has even inspired a website to help locate missing persons in that country.
