"We are not stopping until we find him," said Christian's cousin Angel Valencia. "That's the mission, and that's the goal."
Christian's cousin Angel exclusively invited Action News to help pass out fliers, while others split off to see what they could find in the field, regardless of the dangers that come at night.
"I can't even imagine how afraid (Christian) is and our fear comes second to his so if it means jumping into a bush, or jumping into three feet of water, we are going to do it."
As Valencia steps on the sidewalks his cousin Christian should have been taking home from class this week, he is overcome with grief.
"He's a cousin but he's almost a brother," he said.
The family is strengthened by all the joy they see at UF, hoping Christian will one day return.
"You never expect it to happen to your family," said Valencia. "You never expect that something this tough is going to ever happen but we're all here for each other and we're all here for Chris."
Police will continue their search Friday promptly at 9 a.m. at Sante Fe College. Meanwhile prime suspect Pedro Bravo remains in jail.
