Statement from Delegate Charlaine Tso (Mexican Water, Aneth, Teecnospos, Tółikan, Red Mesa) on missing child Anndine Jones.

I am very sad and heartbroken to hear of Anndine Jones’ passing. I prayed for days for a miracle. I will continue to support the Jones family and my community of Aneth.

I ask that all of us hold our loved ones a little bit tighter tonight for we don’t know when we’ll see them next. Please, look out for and support one another. 

Thank you to all who devoted their time, efforts, and resources to help look for our missing child. I pray God will lay His healing hand and comfort us.

Today, the Navajo Nation grieves with the Jones family.

On behalf of the 24th Navajo Nation Council, I extend our most heartfelt condolences to the Jones family and the community of Aneth. No family should endure this type of tragedy.

Thank you to all the volunteers and the search and rescue personnel.
