Although I expected they would probably do a candlelight vigil, when I talked to my friend on Monday she said that they weren't really planning anything special for today. Sounded like some of his brothers and sisters might have a quiet dinner with his life-partner. A way to let him know they still think of him as part of the family and to provide mutual comfort for all.
Anyway, I'm once again getting the word out that he is missing. Hopefully, someone - somewhere - will remember something or some new piece of evidence will turn up.
Information about a reward and way to contact the police is listed below~
A $10,000 reward is being offered -
Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact Johnson at 770-834-4451 or Det. Joe Shaw of the Chattanooga Police Department’s Missing Persons Unit at 423-643-5055. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can call Crimestoppers at 770-838-7867.

The bird who answers to a non-bird name like Charlie is a green parrot. He's been on the lam for over 3 weeks but today both my adult son and I spotted what we thought might be him,in the pine tree behind the house.
are indoor cats, declawed before we ever met them (all 4 wheels) but you'd think they were panthers the way they've been carrying on.
Well their humans, my son and his father went out to try and entice this "bird" off the tree. Because? Because if it's Charlie the parrot there is a $1000 reward for nabbing him.
First of all, can I tell you the two vice-presidents here, Cosmo on the left and Max on top of my computer..., raised such a ruckus no bird in it's right mind would have come anywhere near the house unless, lassoed, knockedout and fricaseed.
We whistled, we chortled, we threw peices of bread in the air (well I did) and talked bird baby talk. And when the "suspect" came down within sight, it was a parakeet, not the green parrot with pink neck ring we needed to get the reward.
Where is the parakeet you ask? The last sighting had him still in my pine tree and he/she/it is making periodic forays down to the bird feeder for bird seed.

Most people will say, " Where the Heck is this ? "
Well Jewett City is a Borough of Griswold CT..
Griswold is considered to be on the Northeast Coast of CT. We are approximately 3 hours NORTH of Manhattan and 3 hours SOUTH of White Mountains of NH.
Both of which are a few of my Favorite Places to visit even though they are Totally Opposite ends of the spectrum..
Jewett City is very small, only about 3,000 people live here and I swear sometimes 3/4 of them are kids !
Including my 2 grandchildren who live next door.
Every year on the Saturday before Memorial Day, the town puts on an event which is called " Youthtopia" It is a Big Fair type event geered just for the kids in the town.
It is held in the Park, which borders my land, and there are all kinds of events for the younger generation including a DJ who of course plays the " kids music".
There are Face Painting Booths, Vendors with all the stuff the younger crowd wants like CD`s and T Shirts with Rock Groups on them, of course Food Booths with Popcorn and Cotton Candy and Snowcones etc., and for the past 2 years there`s even been an Inflatable Climbing Rock Wall for them to try to defeat.
Here`s my 12 year old Granddaughter trying her best to get to the Top.
And the Highlight of the day every year is when the LIFESTAR Helicopter roar is heard overhead. The kids are amazed when it lands at the Park and then the Pilot and Co Pilot give all the kids a chance to look inside as they are given a lesson on what Life Star is and how important it is to the Community.
What a Huge response every year for such a Small Town.
So that`s MY TOWN Folks !
Where do you live ? What`s Your Town Like ??
