    I hope he is found safe and sound. Has anyone else noticed that this news outlet seems to be the “Milk Carton of missing” for anyone that doesn’t return home or goes missing? Personally, I find it disconcerting that so many people (seems like double digits) have gone missing since the first of the year in Southern UT. Perhaps there needs to be another Alert, like an Amber Alert for missing adults? Did we just not hear about all of the instances of missing people in the past (I mean, I saw an article here and there about a missing hiker or hunter once in a while), or is this some kind of freakish trend? It just seems like there have been SO MANY in the past year. And how in the heck does this even happen when everyone seems to be packing a cell phone?

    Disturbed by disappearances.

      I totally agree with you Wolverine… I was just thinking the same thing about how there has been so many missing people… Not just elderly tho, all ages… There for awhile it was teens and before that elderly… It almost sounds like this guy may have taken a bus to Mesquite or Vegas and hopefully he’ll be found in a casino… He atleast took his medications with him, so it sounds like he knows what he is doing… The wife needs to loom at their bank statements and see if he is withdrawaling and money and then they will be able to find out whag city he is in atleast… (Which I’m sure the police already told her to do) lol Hoping they find him safe and sound… And praying for all the missing people and for them to come home safe… Amdto have no more missing people!!! (I can wish)
