Jaliek Rainwalker’s maternal adoptive grandmother was heavily involved in the search for her missing grandson.

Barbara Reeley says she’s grateful to the law enforcement searching the woods in Troy on Wednesday after receiving a tip.

Speaking to NewsChannel 13 from her current home in Florida, she says she knows the outcome of this search could be that police find his remains, but adds closure would be better than the roller-coaster of emotions that comes with the unknown.
