‘We were eventually able to find him, and I was able to scholarship both Cody and his girlfriend Katie into some of the best rehabs in the entire country. It has been absolutely incredible to see how many people have came together to help this young man!’ Webber wrote in part on Facebook.

On Oct. 20, Cody’s mom shared, ‘Cody Bishop has been found and currently in a rehab facility where he is starting his road to recovery.’
