Joshua Hli Xiong went missing while fishing back in November.

Numerous search crews, family members and friends all gathered at Lock & Dam #7 and worked together in the search to locate Josh. His family & friends maintain immense hope of his return home, however, they face the inevitable burden of reality.

Josh was just 27 years old and leaves behind a devoted loving girlfriend, Maly Vue and his two beautiful children Maddix, age 7 and Alexis, age 6.

Josh loved life and fishing was his passion. He was a jokester, he was vibrant, he was kind and he was an amazing father to his two children. He was loved by so many.

Joshua's family feels the responsibility as family and friends to help care and provide for this family in his absence and in their time of great need. So they ask for your help in achieving this goal.
