I don’thave exact information on Elibit, but I have an idea on how to find him,you should go through the CCTV cameras around the area where he lives and keep track on where he went and where he was going through out the week and as you start to see that his ways back home let’s say for an example he makes a detour towards somewhere else, that could give you an answer to where he can possibly be.
I hope they triangulated the cell phone, it might be too late now if it is off or more likely the battery died. May have been stolen and charged up though. I’m sure it was done. It’s the first thing to do, get the number from his mom. I pray that this has a happy ending.
Our prayers our with you, we should hear good news soon
