Remus gave Harry's shoulder a squeeze as the boy sat down on the couch and then went about fixing a cup of tea for him. Handing it over, he ruffled Harry's hair affectionately and tried to give his best reassuring look. His heart ached for Lily and her son; he'd seen Harry grow up and this was the kind of terrible happening he'd hoped Harry would avoid in his lifetime. This was what they'd won the War for, right? So things like this didn't happen?
"I know," he said to Lily as he watched her teaspoon making fast circles in her cup, clinking along the edges. "It was bound to happen. But think of it in a positive light; now that people know he's missing, they're bound to keep an eye out and we have a better chance of someone spotting him and reporting it. As much as I have problems with the Ministry, I think it's our best bet to use the media and use the resources at the Ministry to help find him."
He added another lump of sugar to his tea- not quite sweet enough for his liking, and Remus liked things very sweet.
"Have you heard from Sirius?" he asked. "Or have you seen him, Harry? I imagine he's taking this pretty hard as he's been avoiding me the past few days. Maybe I'll try to get Dumbledore to talk to him. There must be something we can do to help with the search efforts."
