After three months of agonizing silence, the mother of Sean Moss, Catrina Miller, said the discovery of her son and granddaughter has given her some form of peace.

"We can't thank everybody enough for going out looking for them and searching for them this whole time, they never gave up. We're still trying to absorb it and trying to take care of everything," Miller said. 

Miller said they will be holding a celebration of life within the next week or so for family and friends to remember her son and granddaughter.
