As the search for Annie Schmidt draws to a close today and she remains unfound, those who knew Annie best are reflecting on her talent and spirit. This video was posted on the Find Annie Schmidt Facebook page earlier today. It shows Annie singing the hymn “Nearer My God to Thee” while on her mission to Macon, Georgia.
Jon Schmidt, Annie’s father and member of the popular LDS musical group The Piano Guys, shared this message to start the last day of their search:
“We are moved beyond words by the thousands who have searched, prayed for and helped our effort for Annie in any way. At this time, out of consideration to so many out-of-state people involved in the search, the Schmidts have set a conclusion time of Wednesday afternoon so travel arrangements can be planned accordingly. Until then, we are gathering up all our strength, energy, faith and prayers for one more push. Your thoughts and prayers have made such a difference. Please keep them coming for one more day!”
