The parents of Jeffrey and Katelyn Risdon were on a long drive in a car that crashed.
Their daughter was in the back seat.
The parents called 911.
They could hear screams and screams of anguish, and were unsure if they were hearing the voice of their daughter or someone else.
The mother and father could not get to their daughter’s body, they told the dispatcher.
They tried to revive her, but she was dead.
It was a terrible scene.
Kayla Risden’s father, Steven, was sitting in the passenger seat of his vehicle, sobbing.
His wife, Kristi, was sobbing too.
“I thought that it was her,” Steven said.
“My wife was telling me that my daughter was gone.”
A few minutes later, a dispatcher asked, “Who’s in that car?”
The parents could not remember.
They were both distraught.
“We were just waiting for her to come home,” Kayla’s mother, Kayla, said.
Steven and Kristi Risdisons were the parents of a baby boy who was born with cerebral palsy.
His parents, Jeffrey Risdel and Kayle Risdev, told the Associated Press that they never thought they would have to search for him when he was born.
Kaylee Risdegan’s parents told the AP that they thought their daughter would have been fine when they found her in the car.
They had not been told her parents were going to be missing for days.
Kayle and Jeffrey had both been in Florida, on vacation, and the Risdes had not heard from them for months.
Jeffrey said they were “overwhelmed.”
He and Kaylee, who were married for six years, were traveling with their daughter to the Dominican Republic to visit her aunt.
When they got to their destination, Jeffrey noticed Kaylee’s eyes were blue and had swelling around her left eye.
Jeffrey Risesdel called 911 and said they needed to get a helicopter to take Kaylee to the hospital.
When the helicopter arrived, Kaylee was in tears.
Jeffrey had not seen her since they went out on vacation.
They called 911 again and found her unresponsive in the front seat.
Jeffrey and Kristy Risdepends on a surrogate mother, and are trying to find a surrogate father.
The Risesdes were both taken to a hospital in Miami and are still waiting for results from an autopsy.
Jeffrey’s family says the family has been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and prayers, including a Facebook page that has been set up for family members.
Kayleigh’s family is also trying to help.
Kaylie Risdell has a disability and needs a foster care provider.
Kaylene Risdecan, a spokesperson for the Risesdepends On A Surrogate Mother, said Kayleigh needs to be cared for by a foster parent.
Kaylynn Risdiels family told WPLG-TV that the Risedes have been devastated.
“When we found out that she was not alive, our hearts were so broken, we just felt like there was no other option,” said Kaylynn’s mother Trish Risdegan.
“Our only hope is that there is someone who is able to take care of our daughter, so she can go home to her family and get well.
It just makes us feel so helpless.”
The Risses’ son, Jeffrey, told WFTV-TV the family is still in shock and grieving.
“It’s been very, very hard,” Jeffrey said.
His father said that they have not had time to think about how they will cope.
“At this point, we are just hoping and praying that this will not be the end of our family.
We are trying so hard to find someone to be with our child and care for her.
It’s very difficult.
It really is,” Jeffrey Ridesdel said.
