There will be a lot of people deleting tweets like this one we assume:
This brilliant young scholar is Quintez Brown. Some of you may remember him speaking at my launch for U.S. Senate in 2019.
He has been missing for several days. He was last seen at Algonquin Park Pool in Louisville. If you have any info please contact his family 502-936-3860 🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/VDeDV5dq9Q

But let’s be grateful to God that no one was seriously injured and hope everyone gets the help they need.https://t.co/Eq8HTUqsFV
