Body of missing boy found



Dec. 12, 2017 – Washington Co., WI – Please keep the family of Collin Ryan O’Hair in your thoughts and prayers. Police found his body early this afternoon. The note below is from his mother.

It is with a heavy heart that I let all of you know that my son, Collin, is now in heaven looking down on all of us. Police located him earlier this afternoon.

Too many demons for him to deal with, he took his life. I can’t thank all of you enough for your Facebook shares and kind words in trying to find him.

Sadly, I didn’t find him in time. Please continue to pray for our family and for Kayleigh and Kaitlyn as they struggle with the loss of their brother. I am numb from all of this.

(Feel free to share to let those know who have been searching.)

I will always love you buddy! My lil chef, the one who made me breakfast in bed, my hairdresser post surgery, the list goes on and on…. I hope you feel my love for you up in heaven.

United Way


  1. Eternal rest grant unto Collin, O Lord.
    And let the perpetual light shine upon him.
    And may the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

  2. Prayers for the family and friends of this young man. I wish people would realize that problems will come and problems will go, but death is forever. Please ask for help if you need it. And, remember those you leave behind will always carry that hurt in their hearts. Rest in Peace, Collin

  3. I am so sorrh for your loss. I lost my son Nov 20th it just got to be to much for him. He left a wife and four children along with his father and I and three siblings. It has been very difficult for us but I know that with Gods helo we will get through this. Praying for your family

    • Unless he was YOUR child, you really shouldn’t post such a pointless comment. Seriously, he was a son, brother, friend and cousin. He is loved and always will be.

  5. I am so sorry for your loss. We lost our 15 year old grandson to suicide and know this pain too well. Our hearts are breaking for your family. Please know you will be in our prayers.

  6. I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my Brother to suicide 14 years ago. It is a very difficult time, I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.

  7. I’m so sorry for your loss. being someone who has had depression and suicidal thoughts myself I want to say you had done all you can do for Collin. Sometimes the little things to some people can be overwhelming to us. Let God place his hands on Collins and he rest in heavenly peace.

  8. I am so sorry for your loss. Be assured of my prayers. Each morning we pray for those contemplating suicide, for those we have lost thru suicide, and for those wounded by suicide. I lost my son 3 1/2 years ago. I take comfort in Christ’s mercy that is boundless. May you find peace in this difficult time.

  9. I am so sorry for you loss…wrap yourself in the love of family and friends and lean on God for strength…your family is in my thoughts and prayers….His memory will forever live in your heart, ..I do not know you nor the family, since I’m in Pa., but as one mother to another, you’ll always be in my heart and prayers..

  10. I lost my Mom to suicide in 2010. She was not only my Mom, but also my best friend. I struggled so many years with her death. I wondered if she loved me, why would she want to hurt me so badly. A few years later, I too became depressed and had suicidal thoughts. It was then that I realized her death had nothing to do with me at all. Her pain and internal struggle was far more than the love she had for her friends and family at that moment. Ive tried to make sense of it all for so many uears. If I can give you any advice, it would be to never question his love for you, his family, and friends. A mother knows her child’s heart better than anyone. Dont let the tragedy of his death over shadow the loving memories and the fact that the world and your life was better because he was in it. My prayers are with you and your family.

  11. Grief fills the room up of my absent child,
    Lies in his bed, walks up and down with me,
    Puts on his pretty looks, repeats his words,
    Remembers me of all his gracious parts,
    Stuffs out his vacant garments with his form;
    Then, have I reason to be fond of grief?
    Fare you well: had you such a loss as I,
    I could give better comfort than you do.
