Eusebius McKaiser and callers weigh in on this developing story.

I just feel very deeply for the family and the school community for the anxious wait as this search continues. More than anything else you have to feel for that family who is waiting for news about their missing boy.

Eusebius McKaiser, Presenter

He says he also feels for the school community as many of these pupils in Grade eight might not know each other and the whole point of orientation camps is to build relationships for the pupils.

Meghan, a caller, says her daughter went on a leadership camp last year and did a white river rafting activity.

She found herself going along the rapids in a different direction to the rest of the pupils and she screamed until teachers came to assist her. It could have ended very badly for her. My heart goes out to the parents of this missing boy. I want to say to these teambuilding places needed to look at the safety and security for the kids.

Mike says he feels a sense of loss and disappointment for the parents.

The problem that I have is the fact that they only discovered that the boy was missing 24 hours after he actually went missing is terrible and there is no excuse for that. Regardless of what turns out, that shouldn't have happened and somebody was not doing their job.

Mike, Caller

Hilary called in and says she is devastated for what the family is going through.
