No crawl space and the attic was searched.

Prayers for your handsome dad.

There was a case around here with some missing children -- everyone looked high and low for days. Eventually they were discovered in the trunk of the family car that was sitting right there the whole time. It was thought that they fell in and then couldn't get out. Please check to see if he might have fallen in or been pushed by bad kids passing by.

I notice from aerial photos that it appears to be a very new neighborhood. Any possibility he headed for the old neighborhood? That sounds like something my Dad might have done...but he had the Alzheimer’s, we think.

Prayers Answered!

A Fort Worth man was safe on Tuesday after police announced a day earlier that his family reported him missing.

Homer Johns, 72, had last been seen late Sunday evening inside the garage of his home in the 4700 block of Ardenwood Drive, police said.

But he was located "in good condition," according to a news release Tuesday from Sgt. Pedro Criado, police spokesman. No other details were given.

Perhaps you could give the FReeper Prayer Warriors some details?
