Thank Goodness he is found yet again. Hope he has 7 lives cause he is going to need them to live with HIS family who "takes" care of him. ***cough*** If anyone in that family truly cares about this man get help that will actually CARE FOR HIM, WATCH OVER him 24/7. APS should have been on this a long time ago and called out immediately last time, err like last week that he was missing for a week, and took the situation in hand. Its a sad day when a family this man probably helped raise, nurture, love, financially support and STILL probably financially supports cannot at a minimum keep someone with him at all times.

Btw, cudos for the police departments and news services like "The Patch" who still run the story when he is missing or in some terms a "runaway". Even though he walks away under his own power he is still in danger of the elements and just sick very bad people who would hurt him and then check to see if he had a dollar on him.
