    But when Amanda and her cousins grabbed their coats and got outside about ten minutes later they couldn't find him.

    "The first two times we called him it rang a few times and went to voicemail and then the third time it went straight to voicemail and we never found him," Amanda said.

    The restaurant said in a statement that surveillance video they provided to police shows Marr did not attempt to re-enter the establishment and that others who did were allowed inside.

    "Our thoughts and prayers go out to Zachary's family and friends," the said. 

    "Main thing is seeing his face again, we all miss him and we just want him home," Marr's father said.

    His family tells necn he was wearing a blue-stripped shirt and no coat when he went missing.
