    Not to be negative but these mysterious disappearances that have the people found alive days later often turn out to be drug-related. Let’s hope this is more innocent.

    i wish drug related was the reason i most often see as a reason for someone gay mysteriously disappearing. what most in my experience turn out to be is a hookup gone bad, and in some cases not fully sorted for decades.

    And, contrary to some dismissive comments about police intervention in the previous thread, this is exactly why loved ones file a missing person report and why police get involved: so that, hopefully, the loved one is found alive so he can get whatever medical or other attention he needs. Common sense, common compassion.
