Seen it All

I would think instead of "missing person alert", a much better headline would be "fugitive alert" or "police seeking individual". I thought an elderly person or disabled person had wondered off.

I know, right?...The only reason I opened it was because of that reason. Then you look & they don't even tell you what color he is. There must be an entire army of school kids writing this stuff, I swear.

There's something going on at Derussy and 18 not sure if it has anything to do with this but the time frame fit the time I get the alert

They are in the clarksfield area between zenobia and ferry roads. He has been seen in that area. HCSO all over in that area

Dusty

I'd think he'd have to stick to the roads that area is flooded for the most part. They may have to do a house to house search, with the home owners consent of course

Hey Dusty! Things working out well for Louis Reskie. Edward the III. Is all over it

Dusty

Great! I got to stop out and see him sometime. You notice any of the sheriffs dogs in Clarksfield? I think there's 4 of them now.

sic-of - loudmouths

No. But thy contacted a land owner that they were chasing a suspect across their property on Ferry rd

Dusty

Why won't they use those dogs that what they got them for? Gesh

I think those over priced mutts they have are no more than $hit eaters. That's y they can't be around alot of the HCSO officers!!!!!!!

did they check the bath house?

Isn't this a WANTED person...not a MISSING person? A missing person is someone that is lost, a child, elderly, dementia, etc....not an arsonist or criminal, wanted person.

Dusty

Lots of kids home during that time of day too. Better info would have been nice.

ladydye_5

Agreed. So if someone knocks on your door is it safe to answer because he is just missing or should you hide behind the curtain and grab a steak knife because he is wanted? BIG difference.

This arson case happened on Zenobia Rd in Clarksfield. the man was taller then 5'10" and more like 300lbs. He was found by some woods behind a property on 18 between fitchville river and wakeman townline. sounds like he had been off his drugs for mental issues.
