A mom is sharing the texts she received from her son who was in the Pulse nightclub during the shooting.

Almost a full day after Omar Mateen walked into Orlando’s Pulse nightclub and started shooting, Mina Justice still hasn’t found her son. All she has are the disturbing messages Eddie sent her while he was trapped inside with the gunman.

As of Sunday night, authorities had only released the names of eight victims. Eddie’s name was not on the list, a fact that brought Mina little comfort.

“His name has not come up yet and that’s scary,” Mina told the AP. “It’s just … It’s just, I got this feeling. I got a bad feeling.”
