NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) – The United Cajun Navy has called off its Friday search for Sebastian Rogers after “increasing security concerns.”

The UCN confirmed to WSMV4′s Marissa Sulek that the security concerns revolved around volunteers receiving death threats online and in person.

“Due to increasing security concerns and with the upcoming Easter holiday, the decision has been made as of this morning to pull back and regroup,” UCN said.

The group also told WSMV4 that this is the first time they’ve dealt with threats while helping with a search.

“This decision was not taken lightly is made with the safety of all volunteers in mind. We want to thank all the volunteers that planned to be out searching today. We are very grateful. We will continue to evaluate the situation and support ongoing local efforts in the mean time. This does not mean the search is over,” UCN added.

Rogers, who’s 15 years old and has autism, has been missing since Feb. 26.
