Caring for human beings seems like the best use of my time, homeless or not.

Missing Persons

Very distraught father and "uncle" in one of the bars.

The son has been missing since 5th of May. Out drinking with dad, and hasn't shown up since.

Seattle Police know about him.

This pic isn't the missing person I'm talking about, but without the family's permission, can't post it.

These things cross my desk every month, people missing a loved one, maybe on the streets of Seattle. Sometimes there's a happy story. But most the time the person doesn't want to be found for some reason.

The hardest thing is the "not knowing" but then how long can you keep hoping they'll turn up alive?

The drunken reassurance of the babe in the bar probably doesn't do much to calm the nerves.

Peace to all. Rick
