@OPDChris great news! Thank you for letting me know they are safe! God bless y'all!
Bolton told The Sporting News he received the citizen tip on Twitter, and although he did not state if the help came directly from Carr, given Carr’s 247K followers, there’s a good chance someone who follows Carr saw the tweet.
So there you have it — franchise quarterback by day, good samaritan by night.
